      Farm to Table Dinner benefitting the WVIFF feat. Mike Costello & Amy Dawson

      Explore West Virginia’s rich food heritage with a farm-to-table dinner put on by Mike Costello and Amy Dawson of Lost Creek Farm, recently featured on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. See Mike’s now-famous recipe for Vinegar Pie, adapted from a submission to the Clarksburg Exponent in the mid-20th Century Chefs Mike and Amy are known for serving delicious food that has a story. Appalachian dishes featuring ingredients from local farms are each served alongside a talk about the history behind the food. Mike’s storytelling approach is so unique, it caught the attention of the late, internationally recognized chef and writer Anthony Bourdain on his recent visit to West Virginia. His West Virginia Parts Unknown episode from the final season featured a meal at Lost Creek Farm. Dinner will be served in the newly-restored, historic barn at the Benedict Haid Farm in Pinch, West Virginia. The menu will be defined by seasonally available fresh ingredients and a strong sense of place-based pride.
