Miel Helps Make You the Hero of the Hill at Steeplechase



The Iroquois Steeplechase is coming up again soon, so it's time for guys to dig out their seersucker and ladies to decide whether to wear kicky little ladybug gardening boots or linen flats with their sundress and fabulous hat for their annual appearance at Nashville's biggest cocktail party. Oh yeah, and there will be some horses too. ...

Almost as important as how you look is what you are going to eat while you tailgate in the infield or up on the Hill with the common folk. Hmm ... what goes with Jägermeister poured into your mouth while you lie in the mud under an ice luge?

Fortunately, the kitchen at Miel has come up with an elegant and affordable option to plan your alcohol absorption on May 14 with their $99 Steeplechase picnic basket special. If you preorder your basket by Wednesday, May 11, you can pick up a bounty of delectable food on Friday, May 13, from noon until 6 p.m. or on Steeplechase Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon. Each basket should feed 4 to 6 people. Check out the contents:

½ pint smoked salmon rillettes with crostini

Pint roasted onion dip

Pint marinated olives

Pint brussels sprout slaw with blue cheese

Whole natural chicken in pieces, roasted with lemon and herbs de Provence with fresh herb dipping sauce

Sequatchie Cove Cumberland Cheese

Whole grain baguette, sliced
Quart concentrated Lavender Lemonade — the perfect start to a spring cocktail!
½ pint spiced nuts
Tennessee strawberries
Six profiteroles with vanilla bean pastry cream and chocolate sauce

Call 298-3663 to order.

I'm not even going to Steeplechase, but for $99 I may just buy myself lunch for a week.
