Two Fredericksburg restaurants vying for culinary honors in statewide contest
This is an online contest and you can cast your ballot. Full rules are on the contest website. Karen Hedelt, the city’s director of economic development and tourism, brought the contest to my attention and says people need to cast their votes before midnight tomorrow.
A dish from each restaurant is featured.
Foode, located at 1006 C / D Caroline St., is being featured for its “Fredericksburger,” described on the entry as follows: ”This burger starts with Auburnlea Farms’ grass-fed organic beef and is topped with sharp cheddar, bacon aioli and Blehneim Organic Gardens’ lettuce. It’s served on a seared Lyon’s Bakery brioche.”
The contest is split into four groups and Foode is part of Group 4.
Beth Black, who with Joy Crump owns Foode, said via email that they “thought the fredericksburger was a good representative not just for Fredericksburg, but for the state since our bread is baked fresh and brought to us each day from Alexandria, the mixed greens come from b.o.g. in Westmoreland and the beef is from Auburnlea Farms in Gladys.” B.O.G. is Blenheim Organic Gardens.
The Schweinshaxe is described as follows: “This tender braised pork shank is served on a bed of homemade sausage stuffing and topped with crispy onions.”
There are also other restaurants from across the Fredericksburg region included in the contest.
