On Tuesday, October 9, Woodfire Grill is hosting a special celebration for the release of Kevin Gillespie’s new cookbook, Fire in My Belly. With recipes conceptualized through quality ingredients, mirroring the kitchen at Woodfire Grill, the cookbook showcases Gillespie’s passion for his food through rustic, raw and “heirloomesque” photos. Fire in My Belly contains more than 120 easy-to-make recipes developed by Gillespie specifically for home cooks.
The party is from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and includes a tasting of hors d’oeuvres from recipes featured in Fire in My Belly. Guests can sample several Southern bites, including mushroom toast, fried green tomatoes, smoked trout puffs, ribs, chicken sandwiches, squash tarts and banana pudding. Cost is $75 per person and includes a copy of the cookbook personalized by Gillespie during the event. Tickets can be purchased online through Thursday, October 4. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $90, pending availability. Additional copies of Gillespie’s book will also be available for purchase. Woodfire Grill is located at 1782 Cheshire Bridge Road and serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 404-347-9055or visit www.woodfiregrill.com.
