There will be two dinners on June 13. One planned meal will take place at The Cedars, Jackson’s oldest surviving residential structure turned retreat center. It will be overseen by chefs Louis LaRose and Hunter Evans, both of Lou’s Full-Serv in Jackson, known for its Southern fare with a twist; Mike Greenhill of Walker’s Drive In in Jackson, a New American bistro; and Jason Goodenough of Carrollton Market in New Orleans, a rustic Southern bistro. Food writer and restauranteur Robert St. John of Hattiesburg, MS will also be involved in the event’s planning. Randy Ford of Cristom Vineyards in Oregon will serve selected wines.
