Eat & Drink: Winter-ish Warmer, Pick-Up Day 

When: Saturday, March 27th, 1pm-4pm

Where: Real Good Kitchen / 2004 E Magnolia Ave. Knoxville 

It’s time for Nourish Knoxville’s Winter Warmer fundraiser to-go! Pick up a 3-course meal to finish at home, bid on silent auction items, and add on a local-food-themed Good Sport Box.

Winter-ish Warmer may be a little later in the year, but they’re excited to still offer an amazing locally-sourced meal by some very talented chefs! Pick and choose how you’d like to celebrate: purchase a meal, bid on silent auction items, purchase a Good Sport Box, donate, or all of the above! All purchases will be available for pick up at Real Good Kitchen from 1-4 pm on March 27.

The Meal:
3 courses, each by a different local food business, in omnivore or vegan options. Each course will be lovingly prepped with instructions for simple finishes at home.

  •  Starter – Jenna Baker of Cook to be Well
  • Main course – Matt Gallaher of Knox Mason and Emilia
  • Dessert – Emily Williams and Laurence Faber of Lesser Babka

 Exact menu to come, but each chef will be sourcing local ingredients to create a one-of-a-kind menu. Note: the main course will contain Mitchell Family Farm beef in the Omnivore ticket, and both the main and dessert contain gluten. The Vegan meal can be made gluten-free by substituting the dessert. Just make a note with your purchase or email us after ordered to request a gluten-free dessert. No other substitutions are available.

 The Auction:

  • Bid on items and experiences from their awesome partners. The auction will be open March 19 – March 26 with items available for pick up Saturday, March 27.

 The Good Sport Box:

  • In collaboration with The Central Collective, they’re offering a Good Sport Box of local-food-themed items! This mystery box will contain items from local growers and makers, and no two will be the same. Purchase one for yourself and a friend! If purchasing with a vegan meal, the box will contain only vegan-friendly items!
