About This Event –

Wrapping up the 2019 Root to Table Culinary Series, Chef Erik Foxx-Nettnin of Magnolias at the Mill is throwing a fabulous fun event inspired by the art of Virginia Barbacoa. From ice carvings being cut right in front of you to your main course cooked outdoors barbacoa style, the Night of Fire and Ice will feature a special brewed beer from Adroit Theory Brewing for the evening as well as a one-off whiskey straight from Catoctin Creek Distllery.

Inviting all of our past chefs for the season, there will be four food stations each manned by two of our chefs to kick off the event. A main course will be served featuring three proteins raised here in Virginia – Lamb Porchetta, Stuffed Pork, and Pit Beef. The dinner will end with a dessert station and wonderful bluegrass music.

West Oaks Farm is a 250+ year old, 10th generational farm. Chef Erik is working closely with Farmer David to bring the best locally sourced products to this event.

This is a food experience you do not want to miss. Join our restaurant owners, our farmers, our food artisans and of course you our wonderful passionate food friends. The view is spectacular with an amazing sunset!

This will be our largest event of the year.
