Feast of the Hunter's Moon coming up

Look for a five-course candlelight dinner at the Historic Rosedale House on Oct. 21; it's the third annual Feast of the Hunter's Moon, an antebellum-period-style dinner and the only time in the year that food and drink are allowed in the circa-1815 plantation house. Chefs from CPCC's culinary school will prepare the meal, with wine pairings, and tickets are $150, with proceeds benefitting Rosedale.

Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be followed by the dinner, on the grounds' boxwoods and treasure trees. On the menu: shaved country ham with persimmon preserves; plantation-grown-sage corn chowder; baby greens and gourd slaw with pork belly lardons; roasted chicken; and charred apple brioche with bacon salted caramel.

Details are here and here.
