The event features jazz by Jimmy Burrell and film shorts, including  “A Short History of Sweet Potato Pie,” –the story of St. Mary’s Retirement Home cook, Pearl Mallory.  Other films showcase Mississippi’s Taylor Grocery, Jones Valley Urban Farm in Alabama and Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville. 

It’s the eats I’m the most excited about, such as woodfired Florida hoecakes from Chef T of Creme, buttermilk brined fried chicken from Gillian Clark of Georgia Avenue Meeting House, heirloom pigs in handstitched blankets from Jeff Buben of Vidalia, Delta catfish tamales from Ann Cashion of Johnny’s Half Shell and Jack and sweets pie from David Guas of damgoodsweetPotlikker shots made by Mark Furstenburg.

Here’s the deal. Tickets are $40 and only available online via Southern Foodways. No tickets can be purchased at Johnny’s; no tickets can be bought at the door the day of the event. Interested? Order here.
