In addition to an upcoming wine pairing, Ravine co-owner Joel Miller has announced the debut of a fresh, new website for the restaurant. Along with information about Ravine and local purveyors, you’ll also find links to a new winter menu and Wednesday tapas lineup.

As for the next wine pairing, scheduled for Wednesday, January 30, at 6:00 p.m., Miller and Shanna Flaschka  have chosen the theme “Opposites Attract” and will be pairing wines with foods not typically considered to be a match.

Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 662-234-4555. Cost is $30 per person.

Several seating times are available, starting at 6 p.m. Local celebrities who have agreed to be waiters and waitresses include Sam and Mary Haskell, author Neil White, University of Mississippi tennis coach Billy Chadwick, actress Joey Lauren Adams and former NFL football player Todd Wade.”

Supporting a Sustainable Oxford

Part of what makes Oxford, Mississippi, so unique is the widespread feeling of support for local businesses. The new website http://www.FarmToMenu.com is the perfect testament to this ideal. Launched by Daniel Morrow (some of you may know him as the Oxford Music Snob), the site focuses on showcasing local growers and the restaurants in Oxford that help support them.

More and more we see a growing trend toward sustainability and the purchase of local ingredients. As Daniel points out, it’s not always easy to know who is supporting this movement, and even some restaurateurs may not fully understand how easy it can be to incorporate fresh, locally grown ingredients into their menu offerings.

Through the site FarmToMenu.com, local farmers and restaurateurs have the opportunity to post information, photos and videos about themselves. Consumers can then find exactly where to go if they’re searching for locally obtained meats and vegetables. It’s a site you’ll want to bookmark and revisit often as I’m sure it will continually be updated.

Some restaurants already listed in the directory include:

  • Ravine
  • Honeybee Bakery
  • Emileigh’s Table
  • Big Bad Breakfast
  • Tallulah’s Kitchen
  • Snackbar
  • Boure
  • Bottletree Bakery
  • Deli News
