Buttermilk Road's Lisa Donovan and City House's Aaron Clemins Devise Special Yazoo Dinner



Recently we learned that Lisa Donovan of the Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers series has been tapped as pastry chef for the much-anticipated Nashville incarnation of Sean Brock's Husk.

Husk won't open until later this year, but Donovan is joining with her friend and former colleague, Aaron Clemins, executive sous chef at City House, to throw a special installment of the Cooking With Yazoo dinners at Yazoo Brewing Co., a week from today, 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at Yazoo's taproom, 910 Division St.

Here's how Donovan explains the collaboration on her blog:

My dear friend Aaron Clemins, executive sous at City House, will be our Guest Chef. Aaron is as good as a brother to me.

He and I opened City House together and spent many long days together talking about food, making food, eating food, dreaming about food and complaining about front of house nonsense together. I’m incredibly lucky to call this guy a dear friend and a massive inspiration. He is no nonsense and remarkably smart in all his approaches to food.

I adore him and I can’t WAIT to be in a kitchen again with him. I learn something every damn time I talk to that man and it goes double when we’re slinging food around a kitchen together.

The dinner is $50, including beer pairings. Tickets, available here, are likely to go fast. Check out the full menu:
