On Thursday, March 1st, 6-8 p.m., the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art is holding a Farmer Mixer, a meet-and-greet featuring area farmers, locavores, and gardeners.
I spoke with Justin yesterday just after he had a meeting with Andrew to the plan the menu. Justin shared his notes, and while this may not be exactly what's served at the event, it does reflect the direction they're going.
Get ready to drool ...
From Justin's notes.
Kimchi + peanut pot stickers with clementine and white soy ponzu
Pickled vegetable carpaccio with fresh mozzarella and herbs
Goat cheese cheesecake in jars with spicy pepper jelly
A truffled "Scotch" egg with potato foam
Smoked shiitake and sweet potato tamales
Roasted beets with salted granola, and and much more.
There will also be a cash bar with a few special concoctions like Tennessee whiskey Horchata and Cucumber-Lemonade with Vodka
There will also be a cash bar (and that's cash cash, btw) and live music from Bryan Hartley Industries. The Make-and-Take art-making activities include vegetable-print tote bags, spoon garden markers, and rosemary wreathes.
The Farmer Mixer launches the Farmers Market Film Festival starting on Saturday, March 3rd.
