Just because the Super Bowl is over doesn't mean that snack season is over. With March Madness, St. Patrick's Day, Cinco de Mayo coming up, there are plenty of occasions for parties coming up and that means appetizers. Luckily, creative inspiration is within reach thanks to Red Pony's Chef Jason McConnell.
On Thursday, March 4, Chef McConnell will host Easy Appetizers 101, and walk guests through the development of three simple, yet savory appetizers. Guests will enjoy tasting and learning with friends, while sipping on suggested wines to pair with each dish.
The event costs $20 per person and includes three hefty portions of the featured appetizers and three wine tastings. Additionally, patrons will leave with the recipes and will also receive 15 percent off on all food purchases at the three restaurants in Chef McConnell's burgeoning empire, Red Pony, SOL and 55 South, for the following month. Chef Jason is an entertaining, engaging kind of guy so I'm sure the evening will be a hoot.
The $20 cost includes tax and gratuity. For reservations or more information, call 595-7669. Red Pony is located at 408 Main St. in historic downtown Franklin.
