Belly up to the table for a feast of the finest

Alabama Southern Cooking!

Grits, fried chicken, greens, hushpuppies, hoe cakes, okra,  pecan pie, ice box pie, sweet potato pie (many more pies) - we will create and enjoy some of these dishes while washing it down with bourbon and sweet tea!

During our event we will be preparing and eating

authentic, fresh, and delicious food.

Together we will prepare and cook at work stations I will have set up around my house. Depending on your skill and comfort level, you can choose easy or intricate preparations - usually in tandem with another person.



Once our meal is prepared, we sit and dine in style!

Typically, people will bring wine. As the time nears, I will send out an email with some beverage suggestions as well as the menu.


Looking forward to seein' y'all!

    Well y'all - we did another one! Everyone brought their best cooking skills to the table - those greens, courtesy of Denise and Roxanne, where the bomb! The King of the Flame and Captain Flavor killed on the grill - awesome! The Queen of Cakes and her entourage (Anna and Stefano) made a scrumptious peach cobbler. The black-eyed pea salad and the slaw were outstanding. The cleanup crew was fabulous!! Thank you all for the contribution of your beautiful selves. Till next time!

      OMG - I forgot to mention the outstanding cornbread! That was some good stuff, thanks to Corinna and Mike! I'll have to make that recipe myself one of these days.

      Sue, it probably didn't work because the event was already full. It may not have shown as full when you went to pay. There's a spot in Oktoberfest - can't remember if you've signed up for that.

      Yes you did!
