PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —  Craig Rogers, the shepherd (and owner) at Border Springs Farm in Patrick Springs, Va., is preparing to open a lamb stand next month in the Reading Terminal Market.

“Pretty much everything has to be done,” he said recently.  “We have a gentleman’s agreement for us to move into this space.  We will be open, selling fresh lamb and pot pies and lamb stews and all sorts of lamby goodness!”

“The food consists of a lot of what’s called ‘low country food.’  It’s shrimp and grits, short ribs with cheddar grits, fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes — all the things you would think of when you think of the south.”

And at Oyster House, 1516 Sansom Street in center city Philadelphia, owner Sam Mink will be offering three Saturdays of “oyster classes,” beginning January 19th.

“We learn the differences between east coast and west coast oysters, the science behind oysters, we’re going to taste oysters, and we’re also gonna pair the oysters with beer, wine, and some sparkling wine as well,” he explains.
