Whole Beast Prix Fixe: Cattail Creek Lamb

Thursday, February 21 - Friday, February 22
The Restaurant at King Estate

Join us for dinner on February 21st and 22nd for a special menu showcasing a new level of sustainability from the King Estate Culinary Program: a prix fixe which offers much taste and little waste. Whole lamb will be sourced from Cattail Creek Farm for this delicious dinner.

“As chefs it is our responsibility to consider how our purchases affect the food supply of our regions. For example:  if we were to order only lamb shank, then our beloved lamb rancher, John Neumeister of Cattail Creek Lamb, would have to work to find markets for all the other cuts of those lamb from which the shanks were removed.  Out of respect to the lamb I would rather showcase the whole beast. We would like our guests of King Estate to know that we are as close to source of their food as we possibly could be without raising the animal ourselves.” -Executive Chef Benjamin Nadolny
