FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Farms Revealed and Cocktail Sneak Peek:
Harvest Week at Motor Supply, June 10-15, 2014
June 3, 2014 (COLUMBIA, S.C.) – Fresh, new farms join the ranks for Summer Harvest Week at Motor Supply, a celebration of the bistro’s year-round relationships with small, local and sustainable farms, June 10-15, 2014. In addition to nailing down dinner reservations early to enjoy nightly special menus packed with ingredients sourced specifically from partner farms for Harvest Week, local foodies have learned to seize the day and partake in the bizarrely delicious, one week-only cocktail list as well.
Cited in major publications such as The New York Daily News, US Airways Magazine and National Geographic Traveller as one of South Carolina’s most notable farm-to-table dining destinations, Motor Supply will feature eleven of its small, sustainable S.C. farming partners, including year-round suppliers as well as new producers brought in by new Executive Chef Wesley Fulmer, who took the helm in Spring 2014.
Meet the Farmer (and the Chef!)
Meet the Farmer (and the Chef!) Happy Hour will kick off Harvest Week on Tuesday, June 10, from 5:30–7:00 p.m., when guests are invited to meet & mingle with featured farm owners as well as Executive Chef Wesley Fulmer, whose pedigree includes stints at James Beard Award-winners Susanna Foo in Philadelphia and Restaurant August in New Orleans. Most recently, Fulmer served as Sous Chef at the esteemed Atlantic Room at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, where he established relationships with some of the Lowcountry’s most conscientious producers.
Harvest Week Cocktail Sneak Peek
Featuring daring and unusual – but innovative and tasty – combinations, the Harvest Week limited edition cocktail menu highlights seasonal ingredients to coordinate with the kitchen, all mixed up by Head Barman and resident “mad scientist” Josh Streetman.
Cocktail concepts feature pickling (from tomatoes to strawberries), fresh, local fruit (blueberries and peaches) and savory ingredients (hot sauce and local quail eggs) in everything from martinis and punches to flips and sours.
