This weekend we are joining forces with Local Fare and Rink DaVee from Shooting Star Farms and offering a five course Prix Fixe menu based on Local Foods for the "Eat Local Challenge"
Here is the hype...
The Eat Local Challenge
The Walker House with the support of our local farms (especially Rink, Jenny and Charlie of Shooting Star Farms) will host a special menu from Thursday, September 11th through
Sunday, September 14th to join forces with Local Fare to help promote local farms
and the "Eat Local" philosophy.
The "Eat Local Challenge" is to challenge communities throughout SW Wisconsin to spend 10% of their food budget in purchasing local food and supporting local fare.
Local Fare has joined with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and other organizations to promote awareness of the benefits and delights to be found in consuming local food.
Chef Michael Hayes has created and designed a Prix Fixe Five Course dinner utilizing six local area farms which runs through Sunday, September 14th, 2008
