One of the courses of the First Harvest meal from American Harvest

The American Harvest restaurant in Springfield, Illinois celebrates the farmer and supports locally grown products. On May 24th, American Harvesteatery  offered a wonderful six-course meal that Chef’s Jordan and Aurora Coffey was aptly titled, “First Harvest”.  The food on the menu celebrated the first harvest of spring and my husband and I enjoyed every bite!

American Harvest’s motto is “True to the Season, True to the Region” and their goal is a simple one, to offer the freshest ingredients, sourced from local farmers in Illinois.

The “First Harves” meal t was created by the coordination of a group of chefs and servers that worked together to bring the menu from farm to table!  The next scheduled meal will be with a New York theme. “We do this every month and always on a Thursday,” Chef Jordan said.
