The Cookery hosted a Fall Harvest Dinner the day after Veterans Day, which benefited the Farmer Veteran Coalition's Homegrown by Heroes label. Mattie Beason and John Eisensmith of Six Plates teamed up with Joy Crump of Foode in Fredericksburg, Va., to serve a feast of local foods, most of which was grown by local farmer veterans and other nearby farms. This seared rare tuna dish created by John was expertly paired with a Château l'Oiselinière de la Ramée Muscadet wine by Mattie, who curated a special selection of beer, wine and cider for each dish.
