Washington, DC (March 20, 2013) – The Maryland Jockey Club announced its plans to launch a “farm to table” concept at the Preakness Stakes’ Corporate Village and Turfside Terrace. The 2013 menus will be produced by celebrity chef and restaurateur, Mike Isabella.
The Corporate Village and Turfside Terrace collectively are comprised of over 6,000 guests annually, making this initiative the wold’s largest Farm to Table dining experience. These two destinations are built for the Preakness’ most distinguished guests from corporate entities, to the Mid-Atlantic’s demographic looking for a packaged experience that is second to none.
The Family Farmers of Purdue, Anson Mills, Olli Salumeria, Caputo Brothers Creamery, Lois’ Produce, M.E. Swings Coffee, and of course Chesapeake Gold Oysters from Hoopers Island are just a few of the farm chosen to participate.
“The movement toward locally-sourced, Farm to Table food has become popular all over Maryland, D.C. and the Mid-Atlantic,” said celebrity chef and restaurateur, Mike Isabella. “The Preakness Stakes is such an iconic annual event for our area I’m excited to see they have implemented the new Farm to Table program, and I was honored to be invited to create the first menu.”
The 138th Running of the Preakness Stakes is Friday May 17th, 2013 at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Tickets are available here.
