Our friends at Farm 255 have an amazing special dinner planned for Wednesday, March 21.   No Sleep 'Til Galicia is a five-course wine dinner inspired by Whitney's adventure through Spain with winemaker Raúl Pérez.

On the restaurant's Farm Dirt blog, Chef Whitney reflects on her experiences in Spain and its inspiration for this dining event:

"We'd go to all these beautiful vineyards and eat grapes from vines that were 100 years old," Chef Whitney says. Along the way, she was able to taste myriad wines in their various stages of development — from a few days aged to those that had been aging for months or even years — and participate in the wine-making process from start to finish. "Now I understand that region, and I understand Mencia grapes," she says. 

Drum roll, please . . . Here's the delectable menu!

First: Jamón
iberico ham, savory churro, favas, spring vidalias, mint
