“Flock” to the Waterfowl Building for a gastronomic “feast” of locally-sourced, seasonal specialties prepared by five illustrious chefs from the Mid-Atlantic.

“One of the most ambitious culinary events ever undertaken on Maryland’s Eastern Shore…a truly exciting and dynamic expression of a community coming together to celebrate 50 years of embracing, protecting and promoting the rich heritage of the region, experienced through our local cuisine and those farmers, watermen and millers that make it possible.”

—Chef/Event Manager, Jordan Lloyd

The Feast

Following cocktails offered up by celebrated local distilleries, Waterfowl’s invited signature chefs from across the region will serve with a multiple course gourmet dinner and wine pairings that will delight your senses. The all-star line-up of gourmets are recognized with James Beard Foundation nominations, “Best Chef” designations and have been covered in many media outlets including Esquire, The Food Network and The Baltimore Sun.  The event and menu, now under development by our chefs, are sure to please since both are directed by Jordan Lloyd of Wylder Hotel and Bartlett Pear and music will be provided by Kentavius Jones.
