HERITAGE BBQ SEMINARS 2012

HERITAGE BBQ SEMINARS 2012

SUNDAY SEPT. 2ND SEMINARS

Various Seminars presented by Laura Werlin, Mary Wagstaff, Brady Lowe and The Commercial Appeal at The Peabody Hotel

We celebrate the first-ever COCHON HERITAGE BBQ IN MEMPHIS.

BUT, before the Heritage BBQ throw-down on Sunday afternoon, guests are invited to the Peabody Memphis Hotel during the morning hours for a variety of educational seminars and pre-pork prepping. Cheese Expert Laura Werlin and Hospitality PR Maven Mary Wagstaff curated these dynamic and interactive seminars that focus on cheese, butchery, and wine. First, Laura partners with artisan cheese makers and special guests to showcase a wide array of fromage in “Craft American Cheese Selections.” Immediately following the morning tutorials, chefs, wine professionals and mixologists will educate participants in the art of pairing wine with bold flavors and spices in “Perfect Pairings” presented by The Commercial Appeal.

Get schooled in the art of eating and drinking at the Heritage BBQ dynamic and interactive seminars, hosted at the historic Peabody Hotel. First, fromage expert Laura Werlin shares her knowledge on the world of craft American cheese and provides samples from artisan cheesemakers Blackberry Farm, Southern & Southern, and others. Then, hospitality PR maven Mary Wagstaff of Wagstaff Worldwide leads a series on pairing fine wine with bold flavors and spices, presented by The Commercial Appeal. Celebrated chefs including Edward Lee and Jamie Bissonnette join the wine pairing seminar with delectable food samples.
