Georgetown Debuts Seed to Feed Dinner Series Featuring Local Cuisine

GEORGETOWN, KY (June 8, 2016) - Local Feed’s Justin Thompson, Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Commission, LM Communications and Kentucky Proud present the Seed to Feed dinner series this July-October.

Local Feed will host a kickoff for Seed to Feed at Royal Spring Park on June 25 from 11-3 with a hog roast, live music and beer poured by Country Boy Brewing.

The monthly dinner series consists of four events in unique locations throughout Georgetown with complementary décor and menus prepared by top chefs from the region.

“Being the new face in Georgetown I wanted to provide something new for the community. All of the money from the dinner series goes back into foundations in Scott County,” said Thompson.

Each dinner will be hosted at a farm or non-profit organization in Scott County. The dinners will consist of approximately five courses that will be paired with local beers, wines or bourbons when appropriate. Music, silent auctions, art, etc. may also be included at the dinners.

“Farmers of the Scott Co. Farmers’ Market are really excited about the opportunity to share their in-season, fresh from the field, locally grown fruits and vegetables at the peak of their flavor and nutrition,” said Sharon Flynt, Agent for Horticulture at the Scott County Cooperative Extension Office.

“Georgetown has really evolved into a culinary destination in the last few years. We are excited to show off our local attractions while giving visitors and community members a unique fine dining experience,” said Lori Saunders, Executive Director of the Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Commission.

“Seed to Feed is a winning opportunity for everyone involved. As dinner events are served up throughout the season, everyone—local restaurants and chefs, farmers of the Scott Co. Farmers’ Market, community members and dinner guests, will benefit.It’s bringing our community together through good food!” said Flynt.

Mayor Tom Prather is also excited about the event. “What a great idea for building community. I couldn’t be more excited about this concept and the opportunity to bring citizens together to celebrate good food locally grown,” said Prather.

The first event, on July 15, Scott County “Farms to Food” will take place at the Kentucky Horse Park with chef Jacob Coronado of the chic 8Up Elevated Drinkery and Kitchen in Louisville. All of the meat and vegetables will be entirely from Scott County farms and the dinner will benefit the Farms to Food Bank participant Amen House.ÂÂÂÂ

On August 12, Yuko-En Sister City will have the feel of an upscale cocktail party with chef stations, craft drinks, and opportunities to mingle at Yuko-En Garden and proceeds will go toward the landscaping and upkeep of Yuko-En Garden.Local Feed’s sous chef Julian Stone will be the guest chef.

On September 16, Kentucky Traditions will embrace the history of Kentucky’s food and spirits at Ward Hall in an elegant backyard garden party by guest chef, Jonathan Searle, chef at Lockbox at the 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington.

The final event, Old World at Old Friends Retired Thoroughbred Farm will kickoff the autumn racing season, taking place the day before Keeneland’s Fall meet on October 6. The cuisine will be prepared using Old World techniques by Patrick Roney, chef at Harvest in Louisville.

“I hope to bring attention to the culinary scene of Georgetown and Georgetown as a destination,” said Thompson. “The Food Scene in a town is part of who you are as a culture. Understanding the role of the farmers to a community and the possibility of sustainable food is really important.”

“Georgetown is truly a beautiful town full of historic charm and southern hospitality.Our farmers help make this community home and we’re delighted to partner with the Kentucky Proud Food to Fork program, local businesses and farmers to showcase fresh food from Scott County farms,” said Saunders.
