West Feliciana Parish, LA • Como Plantation

 

December 8, 2019

 

In the Tunica Hills on the banks of the Mississippi River, a holiday garden party to reveal the spectacular restoration of historic Como Plantation, soon to reopen to the public as a spiritual retreat. 

 

The final installment of Country Roads Supper Club: The Fall Series takes us to the banks of the Mississippi River for HomeGrown Gospel, a farm-to-table feast, and sunset concert to unveil the spectacular restoration of Como Plantation. CheFarmer Matthew Raiford and alchemist wife Jovan Sage of Farmer & Larder in Brunswick, Georgia, have created (grown, fermented, seeped, tilled—you get the picture) an extraordinary menu based on the values of Giliard Farms, their Centennial African American and organic family farm.

About Country Roads Supper Club


OUR MOTTO: EAT WELL. RAISE A GLASS. MAKE NEW FRIENDS.

Our slogan sums it up... we created Supper Club to make the most of River Road culture by bringing great food, fine wine, and close friends together in the most spectacular settings we've discovered in 35 years of publishing.


WHO'S COOKING?

We work with nationally recognized chefs from Louisiana, Mississippi, and beyond, inviting them to step out of their restaurants and create unique menus themed to suit the location. 


WHY FAMILY STYLE?

At most of our dinners, we strive to create an atmosphere of has a family style component to it; this goes back to our motto.. make new friends. Supper Club has struck a balance of old and new friends uniting over good food. Family style creates opportunity for interaction by serving your neighbor.


WHAT'S WITH THE BELL?

At our first Supper Club we rang a dinner bell to get our guests' attention.  Now it's a tradition! Plus, it's hard to pry that bell from the hands of CR head honcho James Fox-Smith. So when you hear the bell ringing, get ready to dine!


WHO'S THAT SINGING?

Spending decades covering the arts has its advantages. For each Supper Club, we work with renowned local musicians, storytellers, and artists chosen to complement the theme of the event. Theatre troups, steamboat jazzmen, Grammy award-winning fiddlers, and local bluesman—they're all here.


WHAT'S SUPPER CLUB STYLISH?

It's the age-old dilemma...what to wear for South Louisiana's schizophrenic weather. Leave the high heels and suits at home. Supper Club events are a cultural safari  taking guests all over the region. But whatever the destination, each Supper Club event is carefully crafted to be beautiful. So dress comfort in style. But don't worry, we'll give you a heads-up about the weather before each dinner.
