Spring Forage Dinner
Chef Craig von Foerster at The Vesta Room
201 S Ingram Mill Road, Springfield MO
Chef Craig von Foerster has created a six course menu celebrating the
palate of Spring in the Ozarks! Foraged fresh from his own Farm Road 168 Gardens and 417 purveyors, "micro local" is the evening's theme.
A taste of Spring garlic, baby pea shoots, sprouting fava bean greens, tangy mint, radishes, ramps, tender baby spinach, Missouri morels and delicate, just cut lettuces. Savor how well they plate with diver scallops, fresh from the water salmon, lobster and tender rib steak.
Just like the hyper-seasonal Missouri weather, the Menu could reflect harvest availability. Chef von Foerster's style allows the ingredients center stage. Don't be surprised if his morning walk through the gardens and Farmers Market finds end up on the Menu in a last second addition.
