Join the Blue Ridge Pens and guests on May 11 at Chateau Morrisette Winery on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. The America’s longest national park in early May will be at its springtime peak as you join these authors for dinner and the spoken word.

Tickets remain, but act soon. It promises to be a memorable evening. Many of the authors will have books available for signing before and after the meal (and at least one of us will also have Photo Note Cards as well!) Here’s the menu:

First Course: Fresh Mixed Green Salad, baby tomatoes and cucumbers with your choice of dressing. Served with warm artisan bread and herbed butter.

Second Course: Chicken “Cordon Blue” Plump Chicken Breast marinated in an herbal melange, and generously stuffed with Virginia Ham and Gruyere cheese. Lightly breaded and then sauteed golden brown, Chef finishes the dish with a flavorful chicken thyme jus. Served over Wild Rice Pilaf with smoky grilled asparagus spears.

Third Course: Finish the evening with Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie, served warm with creamy Vanilla ice cream on top!

Please call 540.593.2865 for further details or reservations.
