Chefs Collaborative - Ohio River Valley, in collaboration with Midwest Culinary Institue and Creation Gardens, is proud to present two workshops with Adam Danforth, who is the James Beard and IACP award-winning author of two books about slaughtering and butchering livestock. Danforth teaches workshops and lectures nationwide for venues such as Stone Barns Center for Agriculture and the James Beard Foundation Chefs Boot Camp. Danforth also works with individual farmers who are slaughtering animals for themselves, and because of that, he has a keen awareness of the needs of farmers, especially those who may be killing an animal for the first time.

Cincinnati Wine Festival

We have an amazing line up for our upcoming Cincinnati Wine Festival dinner on Thursday, March 8th. All from Signorello Estate winery in Napa California. This was one of the vineyards on the Silverado Trail that was completely destroyed during last year’s wild fires. During our dinner you’ll hear about the history of the vineyard, the fires that reduced it to rubble and how the owners plan to have it rebuilt with in the next two years. Plus you’ll get to eat some wonderful food to go along with the story.

Students from @cinstate’s Midwest Culinary Institute, working on their capstone class dish. We assisted the students with the development and prep of their dishes. From there we will run the dish as a special in the restaurant. The students will get to analyze sales and food costs during the entire process. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the @chefscollaborative Good Food Fund.

We may or may not be putting a ice cream sandwich on the December Tasting Menu. It might be made with oatmeal and toasted flax seed then filled with chestnut ice cream...or it might not. Guess you’ll just have to swing down and found out!

We strongly support the concept of independent eco-certification programs for seafood. In addition to choosing from our "Best Choices" and "Good Alternatives," we recommend that seafood buyers look for the eco-certified products shown below. Seafood Watch’s Eco-Certification Benchmarking Project (PDF) has determined that when you buy from these eco-certified sources, you’re buying seafood that’s equivalent to at least our yellow "Good Alternative" recommendation.

Black Hawk

We have been working the fields of our home soil more than four and a half decades. Frustrated from the lack of good quality beef in local restaurants, we realized that we could do something about it and, in the process, discovered the key to what could eventually change the entire industry.
