These special dining events offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy a unique dining experience where as much of the ingredients as possible are provided directly from local growers and providers.
This is an effort to support a more local, sustainable food industry, while at the same time showing our guests that it is possible to provide a high quality dinner made from locally sourced and organically grown ingredients.
Menu cuisines range from Mediterranean to Italian to Traditional Southern.
The 5-course meal could begin with a starter such as Havarti sun-dried tomato cheese wedges and move on to a soup or salad, then into the finest main courses that Waco has to offer such as Garlic and Herb-stuffed Lamb Roast with Bacon-wrapped Asparagus and Twice Baked Cream Potatoes with Artisan Oven’s pull-apart herbed bread.
The finale is our fresh-made custom desserts such as Creme Bruleé with fresh berries or Chocolate-swirled tulip bowl filled with Raspberry Mousse.

- Brazos Valley Cheese
