City House: Because Celebrity Chefs Gotta Eat, Too
December 17, 2010 at 11:29AM
This week's dining column features an unforgettable meal at City House, where I was fortunate enough to dine with James Beard Award-winners John Currence from City Grocery in Oxford, Miss.; Michael Schwartz from Michael's Genuine Food & Drink in Miami; and R.J. Cooper from Rogue 24 in Washington, D.C.
The chefs were in town to cook for the inaugural CMT Artists of the Year Awards, and I was tagging along as a stringer for Esquire magazine's food blog, Eat Like a Man. Our feast at City House on the eve of the CMT gala was phenomenal, loaded with rustic delicacies such as house-cured sausages, slow-cooked pig tail and pan-fried pig ear. Needless to say, City House chef-owner Tandy Wilson impressed his esteemed visitors.
