Dinner on The Wild Side! Visiting Chef Event October 21 (Event Canceled)

3 Oct

By now you know that when EatingOxford.com puts on a food event, it needs to stand out from the pack.

The Wild Game & Fish Dinner on Sunday, October 21, at Colonel’s Quarters at Castle Hill will be one of these events.

Wild Game & Fish Dinner
Sunday, October 21, 2012
5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Colonel’s Quarters at Castle Hill, 120 Castlehill Dr., Oxford, MS

Jesse Griffiths, a chef and author based in Austin, Texas, will, like many others, be in Oxford soon for the Southern Foodways Symposium. While he’s here, he’ll be teaming up with EatingOxford.com to cook all of us dinner and sign his new book Afield: A Chef’s Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish!

Joining Jesse will be local hunters and a fisherman, including Brad Solomon from Old Thyme Farms and James R. Davis, who will be supplying Jesse with proteins (duck, doves, wild boar, venison) and fish. All will be at the event and available for questions. In addition, fruits and vegetables to be used in main courses and sides will be obtained from farmer’s markets around Oxford.

An Afield-inspired cocktail—sponsored by Cathead Vodka—will be offered to guests to kick off the evening, and the Colonel’s Quarters bar will remain open throughout the evening for those interested in purchasing additional libations.

A portion of the events proceeds will go to support the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council.

Seating is limited; reserve your tickets and books early!

Tickets Starting at $65
