When Frank Bennett, the villain of the the 1991 film, Fried Green Tomatoes, turns up dead by the hand of Sissy, the cook, (in the yard, with the iron skillet) heroine Idgie Threadgood thinks for a minute. She says to Sissy’s son, “Big George…I think it’s hog boiling time.” To which his reply is, “No ma’am. It ain’t cold enough” and she insists, “It’s Hog. Boiling. Time.” [punctation mine]
On Saturday, May 25th Wyebrook Farms is welcoming Jonathan “Johnny Mac” Adams (Rival Bros. Coffee, formerly Pub & Kitchen) to prepare a special chicken based four-course dinner using meat raised on the Honey Brook farm as well as seasonal vegetable from neighboring farms.
The dinner is $100 per person, including tax and gratuity. The meal kicks off at 7 p.m. with a complimentary Victory beer toast and the dinner follows on the top floor of Wyebrook’s restored stone barn. Seating is limited to 40 guests and reservations are required.

So we know that Pub & Kitchen just recently re-opened with a new menu and a new chef taking the place of Jonathan Adams, who cooked there up until the remodel and has now been replaced by Eli Colins, ex of Daniel Bolud’s DBGB. And now, we’ve just gotten word that Adams will be on the team at the Cafe At Wyebrook Farm in Chester County when it opens for the season next week.
The way things are shaking out, Wyebrook’s owner, Dean Carlson, brought on Farm & Fisherman chef Josh Lawler to write the menu (which will feature meats from Wyebrook and locally sourced produce and cheeses). Adams will be on hand to work with Wyebrook’s existing chef, Michael Baver, to “implement the menu and oversee operations in the cafe.” Not sure exactly what that means, but that’s what we’re hearing.
Unsurprisingly, Adams’s Rival Bros. Coffee will also be added to the offerings at the Wyebrook Farm Market.
The Cafe will open for the season on Friday, April 26.
