Downtown Dogs Group is excited to present the 5th Annual Bone Appetit - Bone Appetit Southern Soul! As with its predecessors, this year's event promises to be the "social event of the season," as Bone Appetit Farm to Fork was named by attendees.
We are pleased to be returning to our roots at the
Farmers Market, and this year's event will be an elegant-yet-edgy soiree at this beloved venue. Our entertainer is none other than Jackson's own Lauren Pritchard (LOLO), who will be sharing her heart-felt style of soul music in a new-to-Jackson presentation, which is sure to be remembered for a long time to come! Lauren released her second album in 2016, and among other accomplishments, she is the composer/lyricist for the off-Broadway Musical "Songbird," which received rave reviews. Lauren has made a name for herself worldwide, but still claims Jackson as her home. We are so pleased she could work Bone Appetit into her busy touring schedule.
We are equally delighted to present our celebrity chef, Nick Wallace, of Jackson, Mississippi. Nick is the Executive Chef at the Mississippi Museum of Art, and while he was trained in traditional French cuisine, he melds that and other cultural influences into a unique soul food he terms as "Modern Mississippian." Nick is a James Beard chef who has appeared on Food Network and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Southern Living magazine. In addition, his first cookbook will hit the shelves toward the end of September. Nick incorporates into his dishes locally grown, organic produce and in additional to his culinary calling, he is involved in several charitable efforts.
We think the energy created by these two young artists will appeal to attendees of all ages. The entertainment promises to be exciting and uplifting and the menu will be unlike any seen at any event in the area!
Sam Bryant Distillery will be on hand with a signature cocktail to go along with the event, and there will be other libations on hand to enjoy. Several of our wonderful local chefs will also be assisting with the event and the night promises to be unforgettable.
