In its 13th year, this annual event features a multi-course dinner paired with your choice of beer or wine, and is being prepared this year by Chef Tony Shaffer, of Nashville Social Club, and his staff.
“We look forward to bringing to the community an expanded interpretation of this evening that has become a favorite through the years,” said Karen Abowd, TGP founder and president. “TGP has so much gratitude for everyone’s continued support, from our sponsors to auction and raffle donations, which are spectacular, and those who attend. Each and every person makes continuing our work possible.
“There are a few changes to the evening this year, but what isn’t changing is the fabulous dining experience our supporters enjoy.”
This year’s menu features:
Appetizers (passed) - Bacon-wrapped, wild-caught shrimp with caper remoulade; fried goat cheese croquettes with chimichurri; vegetarian beef tomato tartar on crusted baguette, with a cabernet reduction, olive oil and micro greens.
Starter course - Grilled romaine salad with grana cheese crisps and pickled shallots with roasted garlic-pepperoncini dressing, and finished with crouton crumbs and local blue cheese.
Seafood entree - Salmon Lomi served with micro cilantro edible flowers, Yuzu gel, grilled local peppers, and taro root chips.
Main Course - Rack of Lamb, locally produced, served with parsnip puree, carrot ribbon chips, coated with flowers, tarragon, mint and thyme, braised Swiss chard, and finished with juniper-blackberry gastrique.
