Welcome to Day 2 of weeklong giveaways focused on all-things-local because I am celebrating my four-year blog anniversary and showering you with awesome presents.
Day 2: Local Chef Experience: Two tickets to Chefs in the Garden.
Northwest Arkansas is abundant with food adventures. Yesterday we sent you to downtown Bentonville for a Crepes Paulette giveaway and today we travel down to the southeastern side of Fayetteville and arrive at the gorgeous grounds of the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is a marvelous example of why we all need to explore our very own backyards. It is splendor of garden design and delight.
Want to know what else is awesome about the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks?
Next Thursday night they host the annual Chefs in the Garden event that celebrates the richness of the harvest season. Chefs in the Garden bring local chefs together for an evening of cooking, sampling, and sipping. This is a once-a-year special opportunity to sample from the best chefs from the best restaurants in Northwest Arkansas!
I have tickets to give away to a lucky someone and his/her guest.
Which chefs and restaurants will you sample? Café Rue Orleans, Greenhouse Grills, The Hive @ 21c, Vetro 1925, Fayetteville Country Club, Mermaids, GC Catering, Early Bird Catering, Meridienne Dessert Salon, Fresco Café & Pub, Yarnell’s Ice Cream, Starbucks, and the presenting sponsor is Filippo Berow, who has been harvesting olives from a grove near Pisa, Italy for the past 150 years.
In a nutshell, you will enjoy an evening of strolling through gorgeous gardens while surrounded by a literal cornucopia of food and drink by fantastic local chefs. Win this and bring along your favorite foodie.
Too excited to wait and see if you’re going to win? This event is next week and tickets are still available online.
A lucky someone will be receiving two (2) complimentary tickets to Chefs in the Garden event on Thursday, September 12th.
