Farm-to-Table Iowa Style Holiday Meals
Iowa innkeepers strive to connect farmers, producers to a more down-home dining experience this holiday season with their new cookbook. "Discover Iowa: Cooking with Iowa Wines, Meats and other Iowa Products" is now on bookshelves.
Chef Sharon at the Farm House Bed & Breakfast (Fredericksburg, Iowa) is no stranger to preparing farm-to-table meals. She often prepares meals for events that place growers and livestock producers face to face with end-users at the dinner table since the B&B is housed on a working farm.
When our B&B guest diners are ďtalking to the people who produce their food and who cook it, they realize it canít get any fresher,Ē says Chef Sharon.
The Farm House Bed and Breakfast experience includes walks along the Plum Creek Bike and Nature Trail that goes through the farm. From the ridge on the trail you can look down on Plum Creek as it lazily winds through the farmís pasture where 300 or so head of Holstein cattle graze. The trail also goes between the Engelbrechtís vineyard and farm pond where guests can fish and picnic. Then, there is The Farm House Antique and Wine Shop is located in a remodeled farm shed across the driveway from the B&B. The shop features the various wines created by Engelbrecht Family Winery. Wine tasting is free to anyone 21 years of age and older. And, The Gathering Room is the operation's private dining room that caters to B&B guests and groups of 10 or more.
In the Discover Iowa cookbook you'll find Chef Sharon's "Farm House Chicken Catina" recipes. It is a favorite of guests as well as groups that have catered special events on the farm.
