A little bit of Spring Grove - and a lot of Italy - will be in Baltimore this weekend for the 138th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.
Caputo Brothers Creamery's ricotta cheese will be featured during the race in what is said by organizers to be the largest-ever farm-to-table dinner, with about 6,000 people in attendance.
Spring Grove residents David and Rynn Caputo own the creamery and make a line of handcrafted, authentic Italian cheeses.
"We are thrilled to have our ricotta cheese showcased during this record-setting farm-to-table event at the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes," said David Caputo. "Chef Mike Isabella has put forth an extraordinary effort to acquire some of the best products from the local area, and the result will surely be a feast that we are honored to be a part of."
The ricotta being used at the Preakness can also be purchased from Apple Valley Creamery, which offers a delivery service in York County. To reach Apple Valley Creamery, call 528-4520.
