Aria, Bantam + Biddy at Southern Foodways Alliance New South Family Supper April 12
Aria owner and executive chef Gerry Klaskala and Bantam + Biddy co-owner and executive chef Shaun Doty venture north to Summerland Farm near Cartersville on Sunday, April 12 to participate in the Southern Foodways Alliance New South Family Supper. This year’s supper theme, “Heart of the House,” pays homage to the unsung heroes of the restaurant industry -- dishwashers, bussers, valets, waiters and others who impact every dining experience but are seldom recognized for their hard work. Klaskala, Doty and other top Southern chefs will create dishes inspired by the quiet giants in their restaurants. Proceeds benefit the Southern Foodways Alliance, an institute of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. Buy tickets online for $250 each, which include food, drinks, programming and roundtrip transportation.
