G&G Weekend in Bermuda

This fall, Garden & Gun partnered with Bermuda Tourism Authority to host a weekend celebration in honor of G&G’s latest book, Southern Women. On Thursday night, the event kicked off with a cocktail reception and rum tasting at the Loren at Pink Beach. Throughout the weekend, attendees took part in various woman-led workshops and tours with native Bermudians, as well as special evening gatherings filled with extraordinary cuisine, music, and scenery. For the weekend’s grand finale, chef Nina Compton of New Orleans’ Compère Lapin treated guests to a poolside dinner at the Loren with a menu specially curated for the occasion.
