At its core, Slow Supper is good old fashioned dinner party. But it's much more than that. It's also a collaboration between Brooklyn and Nashville. In this case, we have a threeway mindmeld between Chef Brandon Frohne (Mason’s), Brooklyn Brewery House Chef Andrew Gerson and local royal/songstress Holly Williams.
Let's meet the cast: In addition to heading up the Forage South Pop Up Dinner Club, Frohne "approaches food with a playful alchemist mindset where he re-interprets old world classics with creative flavor profiles, modernist technique, and whimsical presentations". A graduate of the University of Gastronomic Sciences and an active member of Slow Food, Andrew's approach to cooking is based on supporting local food systems and celebrating good food and real beer. Lastly, songwriter Holly Williams is bringing some of her famous family's recipes, as well as her own, to the table. Expect a short set of songs before the feast commences.
If that's not enough for you, understand that this meal is a benefit for Slow Food Nashville, the non-profit that fights the good fight for fair foood. Slow Supper is also a platform for showing off the beautiful installations of NBNY Projects. And we couldn't be more pleased to be holding Nashville's Slow Supper at the captivating Peter Nappi Studio.
