Join Chef Brian Owenby at 2009 Flavors of Nashville event to benefit American Liver Foundation

September 10, 2009

In early August I was honored and privileged to be able to attend a Craft Food and Craft Beer dinner at Gaylord’s Opryland Hotel during the Southern Food & Wine Festival.

Chef Brian Owenby, executive chef of the area of the resort known as The District, was charged with blowing away our taste buds and did just that. As I mentioned previously in this blog, the food was excellent and paired perfectly with each beer. He is definitely a chef of distinction.

Today I learned through Facebook that Chef Owenby, who has been doing charity work for the Liver Foundation for the last few years, has been diagnosed with advanced liver disease and will find out in the coming months whether he needs a liver transplant. (See the story at Newschannel5.com).

September 14th, 2009, he will participate in Flavors of Nashville for the foundation. Please consider attending this meal and/or making a donation to the American Liver Foundation. If nothing else, attend the dinner and let him thrill your taste buds while contributing to a good cause. For more information, please contact the Mid South Division at 866.756.7668 or kreuter@liverfoundation.org. Space is limited and Flavors of Nashville will sell out – so please confirm your attendance early!

Along with the dinner is a silent auction with great items up for bidding. Here is a list:
