Seasoned Sunday – Giveaway!

Fall is hands down my favorite season of the year. Coincidentally it’s the season in which my birthday falls. And this year on the eve of my birthday, I’ll be celebrating it at the “Seasoned Sunday: Sausage and Beer” event going on at Wedge Oak Farm. It’s a collaborative event featuring top Nashville chefs, locally raised meat, & Tennessee beers. I’d love to have you join me! I’ll be doing a giveaway for one pair of tickets (details at the end of this post!).

The event is Sunday, November 11th from 12-5pm at Wedge Oak Farm, just off I-40 near Lebanon. Seasoned Sunday was borne from the friendship between Tennessee Craft Beer Magazine Editor in Chief David Wingo and Karen Overton of Wedge Oak Farm. Karen and David wanted to bring together the best in beer and food to celebrate Tennessee. The event aims to raise money for and to bring awareness the Tennessee Local Food Summit which takes place later in November at Montgomery Bell Academy.

Seasoned Sunday will feature 5 talented local chefs, Trevor Moran of Strategic Hospitality, Laura Wilson of Citizen Kitchens, Trey Cioccia of The Farm House and Black Rabbit, and Jess Benefield and Trey Burnette of Two Ten Jack and Green Pheasant, who will each prepare a sausage using Wedge Oak Farm’s locally raised heritage pork and chicken. Karen raises chickens, ducks, turkeys, and hogs on her family’s 110 year old farm in Wilson County. Wedge Oak Farm produces some of the area’s finest pork. Wedge Oak’s hogs include Poland Chinas, Yorkshires, and the only Tennessee raised Mangalitsas. Karen will provide each chef with the meat and casings for their sausage. The rest will be up to the chef’s imaginations. In addition to the sausages, Barefoot Farmer and Bloomsbury Farm will provide organic vegetables that will be prepared over the fire by Private Chef William Gentry.


You may recall me mentioning that my husband is really into craft beer. Thanks him, I know more about high quality breweries than I ever imagined. So I know that the lineup for this event is stellar. Blackberry Farm, Jackalope, Yazoo/Embrace the Funk, and Southern Grist will each bring two varieties for guests to enjoy. Also, Tennessee Craft Beer Magazine will be tapping a keg of their Sun Drop collaboration beer made with Von Seitz Theoreticales and Monkey Town Brewing.

This will be a family friendly event, and children 12 and under do not require a ticket. There will be live fire cooking, fire pits, and farm tours. I make no promises, but maybe I can manage to throw together a batch of my homemade marshmallows & homemade graham crackers for s’mores. If you win my giveaway, I’ll share some with you! The event will have live music provided by Los Lemmings. Tickets are $75 and available for purchase on Eventbrite.

Finally, how to win! You get 1 entry for commenting on this post, 1 entry for tagging a friend in the comments of my instagram post, 1 entry for retweeting the link with a comment on Twitter. You only need to do one to win, but I’m just giving you extra opportunities! Good luck! Contest ends Friday 11/9 at 7pm.
