Eating locally is not always just about the ingredients — though of course, that’s the foundation. Locavore dining can also mean honoring the customs and traditions of the place in question.
The eight-course menu features dishes that “tell a story” about their regional origins, highlighting Pennsylvania’s gastronomic history.
As with any local-harvest focused menu, dishes will change seasonally.
For now, highlights include a shaved apple salad with wild hickory nuts and ginger shrub; a Pine Barrens-inspired venison carpaccio with charred local cabbage and pine-tip tea; a galette of Kennett Square mushrooms and cashew cheese; Amish-style brown butter noodles with smoked pork jowl; and Bucks County rabbit with saffron.
The pièce de sweet resistance, though, might just be the shoo-fly pie with rye streusel and buttermilk ice cream.
The tasting menu, which costs $95 per person, is available only for the whole table and served family style. Fork is also offering a beverage pairing for an additional $50 per person.
