Philly Homegrown is committed to getting local food into your belly, whether you cook it yourself or you order it up at an area restaurant. In the hopes of highlighting some of the menus that are rife with homegrown ingredients, we’ve partnered with a series of Philly bloggers and have sent them out into the field, to report back on some of those locally sourced dishes.
Once again, our fearless blogger is Tenaya Darlington (aka Madame Fromage), back for another round of local nibbles. She is Philadelphia’s cheese-writer-in-residence and is always on the hunt for a new brie, blue or Boursin.
This week, she’s reporting in from Southwark, the just-south-of-South Street eatery that does its darnedest to feature as much locally grow, raised and produce victuals as possible. Tenaya had the opportunity to try the Farmhouse Platter, a filling, robust plateful that offers up four substantial hunks of artisanal cheese, as well as housemade charcuterie and a number of happy little extras.
