Baltimore’s Chameleon Cafe Wins National Food Award

The Chameleon Cafe In Baltimore Wins National Food Award

The Chameleon Café, located on Hartford Road in Baltimore, is a restaurant committed to sourcing ingredients from local farms. They offer a seasonal menu and have received a wide range of accolades for their fresh local ingredients. Now they have a new notch for their culinary belt, Leader in Good Charcuterie.

The Chameleon Cafe was one of 15 winners nationally to receive the “Good Charcuterie” award from Good Food Awards, a collaboration of food producers, farmers, food journalists and independent grocers who recognize responsible food production and flavor.

According to Good Food Awards, “Good Charcuterie is made by hand with meat from animals that were raised without hormones and provided with pasture and feed that is free of herbicides and pesticides.”

Here’s what they had to say about The Chameleon Cafe:

Tina Perry handcrafts her Free Range Chicken Liver Pate at the Chameleon Café using her original recipe.  Tina first learned charcuterie at the Baltimore International College, School of Culinary Arts; the craft has now turned into her “labor of love.”  At the Chameleon, they source their chickens from Ferguson Family Farm in Parkton, MD.  All chickens are free range and grain fed, raised naturally and humanely.
