May 4: The Hoecake Throwdown

May 4 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

$35 – $75

A CELEBRATION OF CORNBREAD & BOURBON

The Hoecake Throwdown, presented by Blue Collards and Wild Turkey, will celebrate the history, mythos & meaning of that most-quintessential of Southern foods — cornbread — and its liquid cousin: bourbon. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Chain Reaction — a Pensacola-based nonprofit that empowers teens through character education & service-based learning.

EXPERIENCES


The Hoecake Throwdown will feature whiskey tastings, gourmet cornbread and fixin’s and a heap of other culinary experiences you won’t find anywhere else. Experiences will include:

  • Whiskey Tastings: Sample a variety of whiskeys from the portfolio of Wild Turkey and Russel’s Reserve
  • Chefs’ Competition: Taste dozens of hoecake dishes featuring Delta Grind stone-ground cornmeal, as the region’s best chefs compete to wow judges’ tastebuds
  • Bacon & Bourbon Pairing: Enjoy a guided bacon and bourbon pairing experience from our friends at Bill-E’s Small-Batch Bacon and Wild Turkey
  • Bacon & Bourbon Gelato: Sample local, small-batch gelato from our friends at Dolce & Gelato
