Chef BJ Dennis will be serving up jalapeño cornbread with local honey, roasted vegetables from Ambrose Farms, red rice using Ambrose's vine-ripened tomatoes, Wadmalaw winter greens braised in coconut milk, smoked and braised turkey wings, farm fresh lettuce with buttermilk dressing, and a baked pumpkin soufflé for dessert. That's a feast right there.
The menu will be served family-style and costs $30. Kids ten and under eat free. Tea is complimentary, and beer and wine will be available for purchase.
Dinner starts at 7:30, but doors open at 7 p.m. for appetizers from the Tomato Shed Café menu. Call 843-559-9999 to make your reservations.
If you're looking for a down-on-the-farm local kind of eating experience, then put this on your calendar: the Gullah Geechee Pop-Up Dinner at the Tomato Shed Cafe at Stono Market on Johns Island.
