2011 Bluegrass Bourbon & BBQ

Flavors magazine and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles teamed up with Four Roses Bourbon and the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta for a foot stompin’ kickoff luncheon for the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival. Four Seasons Atlanta Park 75 Chef Robert Gerstenecker hosted guest chefs Donnie Ferneau, Adam Sobel and Nick Seabergh, each putting his own regional twist on BBQ—everything from oysters to watermelon-basil granita, pork sliders and BBQ Shrimp Ban Mi to BBQ Peanuts—paired with specialty cocktails made with Four Roses bourbon. After the pig-out, guests exercised to pickin’ and grinnin’ Bluegrass music provided by Smokey’s Farmland Band.
