387 Pantry says
Friday, February 5th, 2016, The 387 Pantry will host a roundtable discussion on the current state and the role of our local food culture in building Memphis as a capital of culinary innovation and exploration. If cities are judged by their food, how is our gritty little city by the river being represented? The conversation will feature the voices of a selection of local culinary figures spanning several roles in the food world. We have invited two chefs, two farmers, and two culinary craftspeople to participate. These players, the farmers who grow and tend to the ingredients, the makers who preserve and believe in a unique application of an ingredient, and the chefs, who present creative, beautiful, and thoughtful culminations of all three, will discuss the dishes that best represent our city, the missing pieces to our food culture, the changes that we have seen over the past half decade, and, Memphis’ role in the broader context of the southern food renaissance, and so on.

The event will take place at 387 South Main Street in downtown Memphis. Doors will open at 6:30 pm and the discussion will begin promptly at 7:00 pm. Space is limited to 60 tickets and are available for $15.00 each at the 387 Pantry or online at

Following the discussion, Shawn Mitchell will host a cocktail reception for 30 participants. Tickets to the reception are $20.

The public is encouraged to submit questions they would like to have answered by emailing

For our city to truly realize its potential as a culinary capital, it is imperative to come together, as a community, for a thoughtful, open discussion regarding our current state of affairs. Join us for the conversation.
