At the "Collards & Carbonara" Release Party

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 10:14 AM

Over 100 people turned out for Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman’s Collards & Carbonara release party and Southern Foodways Alliance benefit. The evening began with passed appetizers and beverages in the backyard of Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. From there, the party moved across the street to Hog & Hominy for a dinner prepared by Restaurant Iris' Kelly English, John Currence of City Grocery in Oxford, Tien Ho of Montmartre in NYC, and Mike Lata of F.I.G. in Charleston.

Before dinner, John T. Edge, director of the SFA, spoke about the organization’s mission to document and celebrate the food culture of the South. Edge showed I am the Pitmaster, a documentary short focusing on Helen Turner, a female pitmaster making barbecue in a man’s world. Turner owns Helen's Bar-B-Q in Brownsville, TN.

After the film, dinner was a huge hit as seen in the slideshow.
