“You're going to see a lot of the apples and the maple syrups and the root vegetables,” Allen said. “I've also talked to some people that produce lamb and goat, so I will probably try to do a goat stew.”
Even though the specifics are uncertain, Allen said the samplings will run the gamut of menu offerings—from appetizers to desserts.
“I want to show people what can be done with the different items that are available right now,” Allen said. “I only serve to my customers what I'd serve to my family.”
