Till & Forage: Appalachian Popup w/ Lost Creek Farm & Buxton Hall Barbecue

Who: Mike Costello , Amy Dawson, Ashley Capps  and Travis Schultz
What: On Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7, a team of four Appalachian chefs — Mike Costello and Amy Dawson of West Virginia’s Lost Creek Farm, along with Ashley Capps and Travis Schultz of Asheville, NC’s Buxton Hall Barbecue — visit DC for a special popup dinner series at Mess Hall. Together, the chefs have developed a collaborative menu featuring seasonal favorites from each kitchen, as well as storied heirloom crops and time-honored food traditions from their respective mountain locales. Tickets for a special small plate menu are $65/person and include a welcome cocktail made with West Virginia’s Hawk Knob Hard Cider. Beer and wine will be available for purchase at Mess Hall.  Till and Forage – Tasting menu for Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7 – $65 including welcome cocktail – Lost Creek Farm: venison sausage hand pies || sorghum green tomato sofrito || garden chow chow – Buxton Hall Barbecue: salt & vinegar pork skins || pimento cheese straws || fried peanuts – Lost Creek Farm: wood roasted sweet corn chowder || shaved country ham || chickweed pepper jelly || burnt and broken communion wafers – Buxton Hall Barbecue: embered blue Hubbard squash || seed brittle || hearty greens || Looking Glass cheese || roasted shallot and sumac vinaigrette – Lost Creek Farm: buttermilk poached salt trout || heirloom tomato aspic || creamed Bloody Butcher grits with red spruce butter || crispy trout cracklins – Buxton Hall Barbecue: pulled pork and chicken liver ravioli || nduja butter || Naomi’s cornbread crumbs – Lost Creek Farm: old fashion vinegar pie || salty paw paw ice cream || creek mint syrup – Buxton Hall Barbecue: black walnut butter cake || coffee cream || chocolate shortbread.  Via their traveling kitchen based at Lost Creek Farm in north central West Virginia, Chefs Mike Costello and Amy Dawson share story-rich Appalachian foods at culinary events across the eastern United States. Lost Creek’s heritage-based approach utilizes food as a way to tell important stories about the way people of all backgrounds have connected to the Appalachian landscape throughout time. Defined by centuries of immigration to the region, a pattern which continues today, West Virginia’s food traditions reflect a melting pot that often goes unnoticed, and a complexity that goes underappreciated. In highlighting foods rooted in place, tradition and story, Lost Creek’s menus might include traditional Spanish longaniza sausage passed on by their neighbors in Harrison County, wild harvested ingredients, such as ramps, wild pears, and chanterelle mushrooms, and Appalachian heirloom crops — Homer Fike’s Yellow Oxheart Tomato, Bloody Butcher Corn, Logan Giant Pole Beans, to name a few — grown on their 180 acre farm. In 2018, Lost Creek Farm will launch the Till and Forage Supperclub series, a collaborative endeavor intended to highlight young chefs and farmers, as well as storied traditions in West Virginia and the Appalachian region. Travis Schultz and Ashley Capps first met in western North Carolina at Chai Pani’s MG Road, then opened the acclaimed Rhubarb Restaurant together. Currently working at Asheville’s Buxton Hall Barbecue — Travis, chef de cuisine, and Ashley, pastry chef — the couple takes pride in the quality of ingredients used, enjoy the team aspect of the kitchen, and have always treasured the humble craft of cooking and feeding people. Buxton Hall embodies the southern tradition of all-wood smoked, whole hog barbecue, with seasonal sides, and nostalgic desserts. The restaurant supports local farmers and working with our single-sourced pasture-raised pigs from Vandele Farm in Old Fort, NC. Since its opening, Buxton Hall has received much national acclaim, including being named one of Bon Appetit’s Top 10 Best New Restaurants for 2016. Ashley and Travis enjoy collaborating with other chefs and honoring Appalachian culture and its food stories.
