Food highlighted on Gettysburg Festival lineup

April 04, 2012

GETTYSBURG, Pa. — Garden-fresh cuisine and a farm-to-table philosophy play central roles in Gettysburg Festival's 2012 lineup featuring seven exquisite events ranging from the elegant White House Dinner to the casual Blues, Beer & BBQ. All are designed by former White House Chef Walter Scheib, the festival's artistic director for culinary events.

The 5th annual Gettysburg Festival culinary events include:

 Culinary kickoff event Robert Cray Band and VIP experience, Friday, June 8, at Gettysburg College. Following the gourmet meal, guests receive premium-grade tickets to see blues singer/guitarist Robert Cray.

 Blues, Beer & BBQ returns to the lineup on Saturday, June 9, and features barbecue ribs with a variety of sauces. The freewheeling "Biker Billy" (Bill Hufnagle), a vegetarian Harley rider, dishes up fiery cooking demos. And the blues theme rolls on with blues musician Shemekia Copeland.

Garden brunch: Dining Among the Vineyards features artisan grower Lee Jones at the Adams County Winery on June 10. Jones will educate guests about current culinary topics such as sustainability and good gardening practices, while guests dine on seasonal products.

 The Edible Art Tour, in conjunction with the downtown art gallery event History Meets the Arts, Thursday, June 14, features chefs and historical artists at every stop. 

 The Saturday, June 16, White House Dinner, is a four-course state dinner replicated from recipes served to both Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

All culinary tickets are available online at www.gettysburgfestival.org or by calling the festival office at 717-334-0853. Full menus are also available on the festival website.
