Grey Rock Restaurant Features Wisconsin Maple Syrup in Special March Entree
04 Mar, 2016
Grey Rock, Heidel House Resort & Spa’s flagship restaurant located in a historic mansion on Green Lake, has begun a new monthly Farm To Table feature that draws from area communities to create a scrumptious dish using locally sourced, natural ingredients. For the month of March, Grey Rock is featuring Patz Maple & Honey farm and their delicious maple syrups.
What began as a maple syrup hobby for Clifford and Nancy Patz has flourished into 17,000 maple taps per season, as well as expanding the sweet operation into honey. The couple has 350 beehives, kept inside of buses to ensure their safety from bears.
This small, family-run farm in Pound, Wisconsin began right in their kitchen. Until the steam from reducing the sap started peeling the wallpaper! From there they knew that they needed to expand. What started in a home kitchen, now happens in a state-of-the art kitchen furnished with stainless steel equipment.
Their maple syrup comes in various packages, such as a maple leaf bottle, a jug, or the traditional tin cabin. Whichever one you choose, it is a sweet treat and a special reminder of the quality ingredients inside.
You can also try this sweet treat with Grey Rock’s Farm To Table feature. Throughout the month of March, indulge in a Citrus Maple Glazed Chicken, served with creamy garlic mashed potatoes.
Amanda Fendryk, Grey Rock sous chef, chose to feature this syrup not only for its pure flavor, but because of the opportunity to showcase Patz Farm, which is located near her hometown.
“The pairing of the citrus and the maple syrup is a match made in culinary heaven because the tang of the citrus helps to bring out the sweetness of the maple,” said Fendryk.
In March, Grey Rock is open for dinner Thursday through Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. The piano bar lounge opens at 4:30 p.m. and features live entertainment every Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. Make your dinner reservations online or by calling 800.444.2812.
