Cooper-Young Beerfest Ticket Giveaway

Chef Ben Vaughn of Restaurant Grace and Au Fond Farmtable and I have collaborated to create a menu for the Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest, which is happening on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 1-5 p.m. in Memphis.

Our menu riffs on the classics: dogs and pizza. While Chef Vaughn has some delicious plans for those who eat meat (and cinnamon rolls!), I will make sure the vegetarians don't go hungry. I'll be making a vegetarian version of a meatball sub and puttanesca pizza on focaccia bread. It's sure to be a carb-y good time.

I have two V.I.P. Beerfest tickets ($60 value) to give away this week to a lucky TCV blog reader. At the festival, I will also provide 2 of our food items free to this ticket winner. Here's the deal: tell me about your favorite vegetarian dish to pair with beer. Post your response in the comments section of this post by Wednesday, 10/6 at midnight. I will select the winning entry at random and post the winner's name on the blog on Thursday. You may enter more than once.

Even if you don't win, be sure to stop by on Saturday, grab some good food, and say hello!
