Chef Edward Lee is hosting James Beard Award winner, author and chef John Currence at 610 Magnolia's Wine Bar on Wednesday, May 14th at 6:30 p.m. Currence, who Lee calls "one of the most influential chefs of the American South," will share stories and recipes from his cookbook "Pigs, Pickles & Whiskey," which along with Lee's own "Smoke & Pickles" made Eater's list of 21 essential cookbooks of 2013. The chefs will feature recipes from Currence's cookbook, along with a bourbon cocktail with "Mississippi roots." Currence, who has plans for a breakfast cookbook, will be signing copies of "Pigs, Pickles & Whiskey" at the event, which is included (along with "one bourbon cocktail per person) as part of the $45 per person price.
