The Piedmont Palate
For many years now, Tom Tom has featured the best chefs, mixologists, and thought leaders in Charlottesville’s food scene, and invited the community to participate in picnics, competitions, and showdowns. You may have experienced them at Farm to Table Restaurant Week or the Craft Cocktail Competition or at a variety of Community Workshops and Panels.
This year, Tom Tom will be expanding its food programming to examine “The Piedmont Palate,” and the ways that food and civic identity are inextricably linked. Throughout this summer in our public outreach and at food stakeholder meetings, everyone was excited by the idea of a community-wide opportunity to envision a signature dish for Charlottesville.
