Among the things that are very important in this part of the south are bourbon, entertaining and decor, both inside and out. So it was no surprise that as the Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville has grown (now at the new Music City Center!), that an event that brings them all together would be included.
"A Bourbon Party: Bourbon + Southern Food + Gardens = Modern Entertaining" will be held Friday, February 7 as part of the event and is hosted by garden designer Jon Carloftis; chefs Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton of Canal House Cooking, and the publishers of The Bourbon Review, Seth Thompson, Brad Kerrick, Justin Thompson and Bob Edison. For $50 per person, you'll be treated to tastings of the finest bourbons as well as food and fun.
Additionally, the Canal House chefs will be hosting a lecture with garden designer Jon Carloftis on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m. The lecture, "The Finer Things in Life - the Southern Way" will cover entertaining and other lifestyle topics. The Canal House chefs will also be signing their latest cookbooks, Canal House Cooking and Canal House Cooks Every Day, following the lecture.
Tickets for the show and the various events can all be purchased online here. All show proceeds benefit Cheekwood and ECON (Economic Club of Nashville) Charities.
