Black Food Producer Partner to Bring Vegan Fine Dining to the District

From our friends at Core Food Group...

Core Food Group Partners with Three Part Harmony and Good Sense Farms to Offer a Five Course Vegan Offering at the Newly Reopened Adams Morgan Institution, The Potter's House

On August 2nd, Chef Christopher Roberson along with Core Food Group will host a vegan 5-course tasting menu at The Potter’s House in Adams Morgan, a newly reopened community space and cafe.

Chef Roberson, who brings ten years of DC area culinary experience to Core Food Group, has crafted a menu that highlights produce at the height of seasonality. This popup will feature produce from Three Part Harmony Farm and Good Sense Farm, both black-owned food producers growing within DC boundaries.

With a resume including esteemed District institutions like Vidalia and Central, working with Jeff Buben and Cedric Maupillier, now of Mintwood Place, Chef Roberson has had the opportunity to work with some of the city’s finest chefs to hone his culinary craft.

Pairing his passion for fine dining with a deep concern with the ecology and sustainability of the dishes he serves, when asked about the root of his interest in food Chef Roberson explains “If I can make it popular, it can change the world.” Indeed, combined with supporting other black entrepreneurs in a moment of great economic struggle for many in the District, perhaps he can.

Chef Roberson’s dining experience will be hosted at The Potter’s House in Adams Morgan at 1658 Columbia Road, NW. Tickets cost $75 per person. Tickets can be purchased at
