Our local farmer’s market opened a couple weekends ago and I just love this time of year. Fresh beginnings from a very cold winter and a rainy spring filled with days of planting seeds. I am eagerly looking forward to taste what the great local produce does for our menus here at volt.
Here are a few pictures of my own backyard salad bowl.
I hope your backyard is just as fruit full as mine. But make sure to head on over to volt to see what chef does with our early summer greens.
If you haven’t seen it in living color - here it is - Our beautiful Table 21.

We recently took another trip out to one of our favorite cheese makers - Cherry Glen Farm. This was one of our first finds when we began the restaurant and set out to meet all of our local farmers. It was a cold and drizzly day and one of the goats had an “accident” on my shoes when i went out to pet him but it was fun being back on the farm.
I was just reading some guest reviews and the one thing that stands out is every diners’ absolute love for our Cherry Glen Farm goat cheese ravioli. And they’re right. If you have never tried it, make sure to get it next time your dining with us. I think we’ve had them in one form or another on the menu since we opened and I for one hope that it never leaves us.
We’ve had many celebrity chefs dine at volt and now we can add celebrity pilots to that list - our most recent guest Harrison Ford. Possibly the most excited I’ve ever been to meet anyone. And how exciting to be invited to sit in the lounge to share a cocktail with Mr. Ford himself!
An avid pilot, Mr. Ford flew into Frederick Airport on his way to DC to meet with members of Congress to discuss the general aviation caucus and the importance of aviation to the country.
A big thank you to all of our friends at AOPA for recommending a stop at VOLT for dinner before heading to DC. And a thank you to Mr. Ford for taking time to take a million pictures with all of us at volt.
To all of you Harrison Ford fans who sent me hate mail for not sending any notices that he was dining with us - I’m sorry I was afraid we would end up with a Star Wars convention outside of volt.
