Cast Iron Chronicles At Twisted Soul Cookhouse and Pours

When I received an invite to attend Cocktails, Cuisine & Conversation, I jumped at the opportunity. Located in West Midtown, it was my second time visiting Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, which is where the event was held.
This coursed-dinner was a kick-off to their Cast Iron Chronicles event series. Each course was paired with a cocktail and poetry-prompting discussion about the soul of the culinary industry, its history, the road that has guided the standards of success today, and challenges that have been faced. This dinner series featured three of Atlanta’s culinary heavy hitters: Deborah VanTrece, Chef Jennifer Hill Booker, and mixologist, Tiffanie Barriere. All three ladies are experts in their fields.
An extra bonus is the menu that was featured will be the dinner menu presented at the James Beard House in New York City, in which these three incredible ladies are headed to in February. I am sure everyone will be impressed and doing a happy food dance like everyone at my table was doing.
We started our meal with tasty appetizers and unique, flavorful mixed drinks. Dinner was filled with tantalizing creations and great conversation. What I most appreciated about this dinner was that is was original, innovative, and quite titillating. They took foods and ingredients that were common and made them really stand out and over the top. Check out the ambrosial menu of items that we enjoyed.
