KY Country Ham dining event
The world’s finest dry-cured hams will be the main attraction at the Brown Hotel, 335 W. Broadway, on Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. when Col. Bill Newsom’s Aged Kentucky Country Ham and the English Grill present a one-of-a-kind, 5-course dinner with cocktail pairings. Executive chef Laurent Geroli will highlight smokehouse aged country ham, bacon, sausage and prosciutto in a gourmet meal infused with Kentucky bourbon. Nancy Newsom Mahaffey, “the Ham Lady” and current owner-operator of Col. Bill Newsom’s Aged Kentucky Country Ham, will share the story of her grandfather’s 95-year-old, family-operated ham business at the event. The company gained notoriety as a favorite of the late James Beard. Mahaffey will talk about the ‘lost art’ of artisanal ham curing and explain how she uses a 300-year-old process to hand-craft country delicacies at her Princeton, Ky. farm. The dinner is $65 per person plus tax and gratuity. For information or to make reservations, call 502.583.1234.
