Stampede to Bellina Alimentari Today for Brasstown Beef “Meet the Farmer” Aperitivo
Bellina Alimentari believes melding strong links in the chain between farmers, consumers and chefs originates with meeting the people and food sources behind the plates...building a “plate”-onic relationship of sorts. This evening, November 10, the Ponce City Market Italian eatery and shop will host a “Meet the Farmer” aperitivo (a.k.a. Italian-style happy hour) from 5-7 p.m. in its Culinary Club area so guests can become more acquainted with Brasstown Beef, Bellina’s beef supplier. Chat with father and son cattle farmers Steve and Whit Whitmire while sipping a glass of wine and add a beefy nibble for $5 featuring Brasstown’s all-natural, aged beef. Ask “What’s your beef?” and the Whitmires will answer -- humanely raised on vegetarian feed, without receiving hormones or antibiotics, just across the border in North Carolina.
