Heirloom has become one of my favorite restaurants in Beaver County since opening well over a year ago. In fact, everyone who writes for Your Beaver County loves it. If we had a “go to” restaurant, I have no doubt Heirloom would be it.

Suburban Supper

In my last article and video about Heirloom, I talked about the creativity that executive chef and owner Rich Montini uses in his kitchen. Now, Chef Rich will get to show off his creativity on a much larger scale. On Sunday, October 4 at 5 pm, Heirloom will be hosting a supper adjacent to their restaurant in Irvine Park.

Called “Suburban Supper,” this harvest-style meal is a collaboration among Heirloom, our friends at Two Rivers Olive Oil, Herban Touch Juice Lab, and Grandpa Joe’s Candy in Beaver. Chef Rich, Bill Porto and Sherri Herstine-Icenhour from Two Rivers, and Meg Grimes and Jade Cageao from Herban Touch have put together a mouth-watering, six course menu that will certainly appeal to the “foodies” of Beaver County. We do have those here, right?

The Menu

Chef Rich’s menu is consistent with the ingredients he uses to make almost every meal at his restaurant: locally sourced produce and meats, and sustainable seafood.

The first dish will be a sous vide citrus shrimp with Asian noodles.

That will be followed by one of my favorite soups, smoked butternut squash soup. Nothing screams autumn like butternut squash.

A forager salad will be course three.

Next, patrons will be served chicken pot pie pumpkin. Confused? Don’t be. Chef Rich is creating his own spin on chicken pot pie by serving it in a roasted sugar pumpkin. I am sold.

As if the menu couldn’t get better, the main course will be Elysian Farms lamb. If you aren’t familiar with Elysian Farms, located in Greene County, they raise all of their lambs holistically.

According to their website, “Raising our lamb holistically allows you, the consumer, to be connected with the farmer and united in this philosophy of care and respect for the animals they raise. By joining with farmers who share these beliefs, we hope to bring this quality lamb to as many consumers as possible.”

In other words, if you buy a ticket to the Suburban Supper, you’ll be eating one of the purest cuts of lamb anywhere in the country.

For dessert, diners will get to taste grilled pear with a chocolate balsamic from Two Rivers. And if you still aren’t satisfied, there will be a candy bar with assorted treats from Grandpa Joe’s.

Last but certainly not least, this event is BYOB. Grab your favorite bottle of wine, and don’t forget to bring a couple of glasses!

Two Rivers owner Bill Porto added, “Beaver has a tremendous amount of culinary talent.  We’re honored that so many local chefs have recognized the quality of our products to partner with us. We’re also thrilled to be a part of this exciting event.”

Nicholette Montini, Chef Rich’s wife and co-owner of Heirloom, has been instrumental in organizing this event. “This will be a unique and fun dining event in the park featuring the best of this season’s harvest. I’m so excited to able to offer this culinary experience so close to home. The best part is that portions of the proceeds will benefit the amazing organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters,” she said.
