CHEFS TELL Local Flavor Savor the tastes of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Primland Resort. By Wes Isley Water buffalo with covington sweet potatoes and foraged mushrooms CHEF Q + A EXECUTIVE CHEF GUNNAR THOMPSON What makes dining at Primland truly different? Executive Chef Gunnar Thompson (left) and Pastry Chef Russell Goodman 56 OCTOBER 2014 This area has a distinct rural food culture, and the land covers a variety of elevation levels, so local farmers grow different crops based on their location. That means we have access to a variety of the freshest ingredients, and we purchase directly from those farmers, things like turkey and lamb, and then we prepare the meat here. I choose most of the produce myself, and I know how it's grown. For our Scalloped Potatoes and Ham, the ham is dry-cured here and smoked Virginia-style, and the potatoes are sourced locally. Our butter is local, we use corn meal and other grains milled nearby, and we have our own garden - and I believe guests can taste the difference. How do you incorporate foraging into your dishes? We do foraging locally and onsite, and I'm always taking a detour to see what I can find. Last year, we discovered 52 different varieties of edible mushrooms here at Primland, and we find all types of greens and roots.
