If there is one thing I love more than good food; it’s a business that supports other businesses. I was lucky enough to attend a press event for Copperwood Tavern at their new location in One Loudoun. They really do bring the “farm-to-table”! You might be wondering what that means. Well, Copperwood Tavern works with local farms, bringing in fresh produce, meat and seafood. They truly believe in supporting local farmers and this gives you the chance to really understand how fresh and local food can make the dish taste better.
A few of us lucky ladies got to taste some of their best dishes, drinks and desserts. Sounds like a good time doesn’t it? I promise they didn’t have to pull my leg to go! Now let’s get you hungry…
Deviled Eggs (smoked bacon, chives & espelette)
Spaghetti Squash (Heirloom tomatoes, grilled green onion, red peppers and grant padano)
Rock Fish (Sautéed local rockfish, romesco, grilled lemon, local herbs)
Duck Breast (pan roasted with black mission figs, parsnip puree, and port wine reduction)
Short Ribs (Ancho Chili braised short ribs over creamy grits)
Chocolate Trio (Flourless chocolate cake, raspberry, milk chocolate mousse with raspberry coulis & white chocolate ice cream) Yes, This is AMAZING.
Now that I have your mouth watering, I would love to also let you know that Copperwood Tavern offers brunch! It’s so hard to find places in Ashburn that serve brunch on the weekends. (*Gluten FREE menus as well… So no one is left out!!) They also have a gorgeous patio, it’s dog friendly and the atmosphere is my favorite. Can’t you just picture yourself curled up here in front of their fireplace when it’s snowing and having a spiked coffee in your hand? Don’t forget that marshmallow below is homemade. (I could of ate 5 of them alone)
Hats off the skilled team of professionals behind Copperwood Tavern. Executive Chef James Duke, Jody Hessler and Chef Brandon Blomquist are the culinary experience you don’t want miss out on.
A big thank you to Cassidy Ricalde for putting together this event. It was a pleasure meeting you and sharing this experience with the other women.
