Celebrate Local! dinner set for Sunday

Guest Chef Dale Hawkins of Rock Cave’s Fish Hawk Acres promises to tickle the taste buds of diners at Sunday’s Celebrate Local! Dinner Series No. 3, sponsored by Adaland Mansion and the Barbour County Community Garden Market.

Hawkins’ menu will start off with a luscious red bell pepper soup topped with Sambuca cream. The entree of white wine, shiitake mushroom, and tomato braised chicken will be served with whipped potatoes and parsnips and haricots vertes.

The grand finale for this dinner is a fresh peach dumpling served with lemon cream and warm caramel sauce.

Well-known for his strong support of the farm-to-table movement, Hawkins returns to Adaland Mansion after being a favorite of last year’s dinner series.

Reservations for both the 1 and 3:30 p.m. seatings for this dinner treat may be made by calling 304-457-2415 or 304-457-1587. For directions to Adaland Mansion and a complete calendar of events for the 1870 restored mansion, visit www.adaland.org.
