I’m so happy to launch a new project that will bring together farmers, chefs, local foods enthusiasts, artists and makers of all kinds.  The River House Supper Club will host monthly suppers at a house on the Nolichuckey River on the Eastern Side of Greene County.   Dinners will highlight produce, dairy, meats and fruits produced in the region and celebrating the enormous wealth of Appalachian agricultural land.   The last Sunday of every month supper will be servied at 6pm.  3 courses of local fare.  BYOB.  There are opportunities to attend and enjoy supper for free or reduced price through a work-trade.  Please email me directly if you would like to attend and help prep, cook, serve, set up or clean up in exchange for supper. I can be reached at melissarebholz@gmail.com

I will keep the first supper simple with fresh foods from the farm and al fresco dining on the river.  In the future I would like to explore the possibility of adding a learning aspect to the suppers where guests can arrive early and particpate in a cooking class or have a Q&A with a producer after the meal.  The focus of the suppers is to place where our food comes from and how it is produced.

The first supper will be held August 30th, 2015 at 6:00 PM.
