STIR THE POT IN RALEIGH, NOVEMBER 14 & 15


STIR THE POT -- NOVEMBER 14 & 15

On Sunday, November 14, Poole's Diner in Raleigh, NC will host a third helping of STIR THE POT, a seasonal dinner and discussion to benefit the Southern Foodways Alliance's documentary film initiative. The dinner and discussion will feature John Currence of City Grocery Restaurant Group in Oxford, MS.

John and Ashley will be coordinating at five-course dinner with wine pairings, compliments of Eliza Olander. The evening will begin with a sparkling reception with snacks at 7:00 PM. Cost of dinner is $150++ per person.

A potluck on Monday, November 15, is for everyone--restaurant industry folk, writers, beverage enthusiasts, home cooks, and people with a general love for food and its history. For the potluck, Ashley will provide--with the help of a favorite shepherd, Craig Rogers--a main course of spit-roasted leg of Border Springs lamb (Patrick Springs, VA) and wine to match. Our friends at Fullsteam Brewery (Durham) will be pouring delicious craft brews and the cocktail rockstars at Neptunes Parlour (Raleigh) will be stirring a signature cocktail. There will be music selections and stories from our guest of honor, "Johnny Snack."
Please bring a $35 check for the Southern Foodways Alliance and a dish to share that celebrates your sense of place, wherever that may be.

100% of the proceeds from both events will benefit the SFA documentary film initiative. Please call Poole's for reservations, as seating is limited for both events. 919.832.4477
