Jan 20: Winter Dinner in the North Georgia Mountains
Beechwood Inn offers Farm to Table Dinners and seeks to reconnect food to its origins and people to their food by serving local, seasonal, and sustainable food for breakfast, at our nightly wine-thirty, and for our Saturday Chef’s Table-Style Dinners. To further enhance our diner’s farm to table experience we operate Grow, Cook, Eat – Culinary Garden, an organic vegetable, herb and edible flower farm in Rabun County. Our Chefs may have sown the seed for your dinner back in March, observed the sprouts coming out of the ground, tended them, admired them as they pulled them from the soil, and finally they put the finishing touches on the whole project by preparing it for your plate. Dinner is $89.00 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

2016: Travel Writer Meagan Martz “Afriendafar:” wrote about Dinner at Beechwood Inn:
Yes, let’s talk about the food! As soon as we saw that the owners, Chefs Gayle and David, went to culinary school in Dijon, France, we couldn’t contain our excitement! Having just recently returned from Burgundy, we were ready for an amazing meal! Every Saturday night, the Beechwood Inn throws an amazing six course meal.
Ryan and I live in Decatur, a wonderful location for Atlanta restaurants, and we make it a point to try new and exciting places. In that sense, we are very much spoiled. We also plan most of our trips abroad around eating, so trust me on this next part. This was quite possibly the best meal that we have ever had. It was, by far, the most well thought out meal that we have ever been served. Between each course, David walked us all through the ingredients. We learned about the local farmers who grew the micro-greens in our salad and raised the pigs for the house-made fennel sausage; we even learned the history of Laurel-Aged Charleston Gold Rice. Each wine pairing was excellent, and David explained their characteristics, their regions of origin, and the best way to taste our glass of Italian Aglianico when paired with our cheese course. We shared a table with another couple, and they were equally impressed with such a fine dining experience outside of the city. While each description was mouth-watering, each bite was even more delicious. http://www.afriendafar.com/2016/02/09/georgia-mountain-bed-breakfast/
