Morgantown Brewing Company and Big Timber Brewing Company will be on hand Friday evening, March 3, for the event-opening dine-around, featuring more than a dozen chefs, wineries and breweries.
Steve Ludwig, director of sales and marketing at Stonewall Resort, said, “The Culinary Classic will indulge guests in a weekend-long series of culinary demonstrations, seminars, competitions and over-the-top meals.”
The Culinary Classic was originally developed fourteen years ago to showcase the amazing culinary talent that exists in West Virginia. While that is still the goal, the focus has expanded over time to also highlight regional chefs along with local wine, craft beer and food.
New for this year, the event will feature top chefs from three states: Virginia, Tennessee and West Virginia. Participating chefs include: Chef Anthony Frank, with The Chattanoogan Hotel; Chef Stephen DeMarco with Hotel Roanoke; Chef Chang Lei-Yun from the Inn at Virginia Tech and Chef Tim White with Stonewall Resort.
On Saturday, guests will begin the day with breakfast in Stillwaters Restaurant followed by a full slate of culinary demonstrations, wine and craft beer tastings, food and beverage pairings, seminars and culinary competitions. This event will feature the West Virginia Craft Vendor Market, stocked full of West Virginia-made products, and a silent auction will be held throughout the weekend with proceeds to benefit the Stonewall State Park Foundation.
The event culminates with an evening reception and multi-course dinner, prepared by Stonewall Resort’s award-winning culinary team and featured guest chefs. The cost to attend the weekend event, which includes two nights lodging, access to all event activities, breakfast in Stillwaters Restaurant both Saturday and Sunday mornings, starts at $599 per couple.
