For his first meal cooked and served out of Sean Brock’s new kitchen at his dream restaurant Audrey in East Nashville, the celebrity chef is bringing back the takeout-only cookbook dinner series he debuted last year out of the Continental. Meals straight out of the chef’s cookbooks, South and Heritage, are priced at $60 for a full dinner, with a vegetarian option available.
There are also two splurge-worthy supplements on offer for the meal — shaved Perigord black truffles or the legendary Julian cocktail made with a very special bourbon from Brock’s old collection.
The menu features a mash-up of popular recipes from both cookbooks, leading off with a baby collard Caesar salad with cornbread croutons (from page 80 Brock’s South cookbook) and buttermilk rolls, then Anson Mills farroto with kale and acorn squash. For the main event, takeout diners will feast on ember-grilled Bear Creek Farm strip steak with Worcestershire jus accompanied by grilled mushrooms and followed by Caroline Gold rice pudding with candied kumquats for dessert.
Preorders must be placed by Thursday, January 28 at 7 p.m. for pick-up on Friday or Saturday, January 29 and 30 at @audreynashville. To order, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Follow along with Brock and Audrey on Instagram to see future dinners, including pop-ups from Embers Only and more from the Audrey team, plus the limited edition cheeseburger series making waves out of his fast-casual restaurant, Joyland. Brock is waiting to open Audrey at a later date, but shares peeks inside the space on Instagram stories and posts from time to time — so again, follow along to stay up to date and take advantage of these one-off meals.
