A Southern Supper Series at Terrain

This summer, G&G and Terrain hosted two Southern Suppers at the Terrain Garden Cafes in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, and Westport, Connecticut.

The Glen Mills event celebrated the culinary talents of James Beard Award-winning chef John Currence and a classic Southern menu inspired by his cookbook Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey. The Westport event’s featured chef of the evening was Vivian Howard of PBS’s A Chef’s Life and author of Deep Run Roots. Guests delighted in food, drink, and conversation surrounding the cookbooks and specially curated menus. Both events perfectly highlighted the best of the South’s cocktails, cuisine, and style.
