A plan for a major culinary center in Wilmington was unveiled recently by Honora Winery owner Patty Farrington. It will be called The Vermont Kitchen and, while inspired by the kitchens of Europe, it will focus on locally grown ingredients, said the Deer Valley News. The Kitchen’s “home” will be the former 30,000-square-foot Martin Brown horse barn at the edge of the village, and will include retail space featuring wines and Vermont products, wine tasting bar and cafe, cooking demonstrations, theater, and classroom for presentations, and lectures by visiting chefs. “This building will be a culinary and wine showcase for Vermont food, Vermont agriculture, and Vermont culture,” Farrington said. No word yet on an opening date. But be on the alert, foodies, to save up your appetite when the doors officially open.
