Despite being the arrival of the dog days of summer, there are a lot of food and drink events to look forward to in August and beyond. Organizations such as Cochon 555 and the James Beard Foundation have scheduled some pretty epic dining experiences across America, whether they involve cooking over live fire or "all-star" chefs working alongside local chefs for one-night-only. At the end of this month, Nordic cuisine will be back in the spotlight thanks to concurrence of Copenhagen Cooking and the return of Noma's MAD Symposium. Plus, British chef Jamie Oliver is hosting a food and music festival in the Cotswalds, while April Bloomfield is curating a food conference in Brooklyn. Here's a rundown of what's coming up:
When: August 18, 2013
Where: Napa, CA
What: The Southern Foodways Alliance descends upon California wine country in August with a great big feast that is Potlikker Napa. Hosted at Whetstone Cellars, pitmasters Samuel Jones (Skylight Inn, NC), Rodney Scott (Scott's Bar-B-Q, SC), and Nick Pihakis will be providing all kinds of smoked meats. And it gets better: the likes of Christopher Kostow, Daniel Patterson, and Drew Robinson will be doing the rest of the cooking.
