Country Fine Dining - Chef Brad Style!

A great group of food writers from all over the country stopped by for a little R&R this weekend after touring a handful of Inns in Ohio. We had a blast hosting them and Chef Brad outdid himself with an all-local 5 course tasting menu that we went bonkers over. Each course represented one of our friends or farms that contribute their labors of love to our dinner tables. Amish eggs and chicken, pork and beef, breads, even cream from one of our server's cows (the server's name is Abbey, the cow's name is Brie). The staff is still munching on the leftovers and fighting over carpaccio, and the food writers have checked out and headed back to their hometowns with their first taste of what Murphin Ridge Inn is all about - check in as strangers, check out as family. Just another weekend here on the Ridge!
