A Southerner’s Cookbook Luncheon

Highlights from Sea Island's Southern Grown Festival

For those of you that have been to the Cloister at Sea Island, you understand that the gardens around the resort are just gorgeous. So you can imagine that when I found out that the Garden & Gun luncheon was being hosted in the Cloister Garden, I was elated. The G&G luncheon was an exclusive event for Garden & Gun ticket holders, during Southern Grown last weekend, that showcased a chefs panel facilitated by G&G Editor-in-Chief David DiBenedetto and included chefs John Currence, Griffin Bufkin, and Harrison Sapp. The conversation was centered around G&G’s New York Times Best Selling Cookbook – their third bird and, coincidentally, their third book to make it as a best seller.  My favorite quote of the afternoon was “Every Southerner should know how to make grits, biscuits and BBQ”. Unfortunately, I’m 0 for 3. Clearly I need to practice perfecting the recipes in the cookbook.

Lunch itself was spectacular.  The Sea Island chefs used recipes from the cookbook to beautifully arrange a lazy susan center-of-the-table buffet that rivaled any lunch set up I have seen before.  My next brunch party will include lazy susans filled with food — it was such a great idea and super practical.

You can grab your copy of the cookbook via One Kings Lane.
