On Monday, July 16, for the second year, the Georgetown Media Group continues the popular summer event, Chefs Go Fresh. Local chefs will rev up for a motorcycle tour of local farms, sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Agriculture, in an effort to build relationships with area purveyors of produce, meats and other farm-raised products.
Chefs and others will start the day with breakfast at Brasserie Beck Restaurant, hosted by chef Robert Wiedmaier, co-founder of the original “Chefs on Bikes,” and owner of Marcel’s, Brasserie Beck, Brabo, Mussel Bar and the new Mussel Bar Atlantic City. Participating chefs will ride their motorcycles through the scenic Maryland countryside, stopping at select Maryland farms for presentations by farmers and highlights of Maryland’s Best products. The day will conclude with a pig roast lunch, hosted by “Top Chef” finalist, James Beard nominee and local agriculture supporter Bryan Voltaggio at his much-anticipated and soon-to-open restaurant, Family Meal.
The following are the three stops along the motorcycle tour:
