Celebrate Southern Cuisine with the Southern Food Tour

From biscuits to barbecue and everything in between, the south has a rich culinary history. This February you can celebrate the south’s tastiest traditions with a new organization dedicated to supporting local chefs, farmers and artisans.

The Southern Food Tour will hold its launch party on Saturday, February 16th at the Goat Farm. The organization’s mission is to be a distinctive voice for southern food by fostering the people who are defining southern food right now.

The launch party will be an evening of southern favorites, beer, spirits and live music, and will feature a preview of a short film about the south’s culinary heritage.

Among the food that will pay tribute to the various regions of the south will be a pig roast from chefs Ford Fry and Kevin Gillespie; gumbo from The Optimist’s Adam Evans; tamales from E.J. Hodgkinson of JCT Kitchen; and chicken biscuit sliders from Buttermilk Kitchen’s Suzanne Vizethann.

Monday Night Brewing will offer a selection of locally brewed beer and American Spirit Whiskey will offer signature cocktails. There will be live music from Blair Crimmins and the Hookers.

Tickets are now on sale online at Xorbia.com and cost $55 for VIP (5pm entry) and $45 for general admission (6pm entry).
