Seminole County Chefs Shine at Foodstock Sanford on Feb 11


On February 11 from noon-3pm at the Sanford Civic Center, three Seminole County chefs–Josh Oakley of The Smiling Bison, Collette Haw of Collette’s Clean Eats and Nat Russell of The Tennessee Truffle–will prepare a Harvest Sunday Dinner for Foodstock Sanford. Locally sourced ingredients will come from area farms and artisans including Lake Meadow Naturals, Gnome Grown Farms and Olde Hearth Bread Company. Dessert will be provided by The Father’s Table, a Sanford-based bakery that donates 50% of its profits to charity.

Tickets are available online for $35 per person ($10 for kids 12 and under) and include four courses: grilled artisan bread with Southern spreads; local lettuces and sprouts with radishes, tomatoes and herb vinaigrette; grilled free range chicken, collards and Jimmy Red grits with mixed local mushrooms; and assorted cheesecakes. Local craft beer will be available for purchase.

Proceeds support the Grand Tour Foundation, which will also produce events in tandem with Foodstock Orlando on February 3. The Foundation distributes funds for scholarships and non-profits that provide hospitality education for at-risk youth.

Event partners include Edible Orlando, Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, FreshPoint Central Florida, Orlando North/Seminole County Tourism, Slow Food Orlando, UF/IFAS Seminole County Extension and Whole Foods Market Altamonte Springs.
