last week i had the most delightful pleasure of co-hosting a women & whiskies whisky tasting + dinner party at the beautiful test kitchen at williams-sonoma. talk about a lovely pairing — the williams-sonoma test kitchen is essentially your dream kitchen, complete with wall to wall Carrera marble countertops and a beautiful farm table — when you combine that with a delicious, fun and informative whisky tasting from lucia, brand ambassador for women & whiskies and gorgeous flowers from tulipina floral design, you can imagine we had one fantastic evening with some very fabulous women.

the wonderful chefs at the williams-sonoma test kitchen whipped up a perfect southern meal to compliment the whiskies we tasted — like russell’s reserve, glen grant and forty creek — all served in gorgeous rocks glasses from williams-sonoma. our menu consisted of Curried deviled eggs, Pimento cheese sandwiches, and Sautéed dates stuffed with marcona almonds and orange zest to start, along with a glen grant sparkler — a smashing welcome punch lucia started us off with (check women & whiskies for the recipe!)

next up was a beautiful Spring salad with buttermilk and chive dressing served with with Glen Grant 10 Year Old Scotch – divine! our main course included mouth-watering Fried chicken with Biscuits and honey butter; cole slaw; and Green bean bundles wrapped in crispy bacon which was perfectly paired with Forty Creek Whisky & Russell’s 6-year-old Rye.

our Dessert was an out of this world banana wafer pudding, this time paired with Wild Turkey Rare Breed — i cannot begin to share how good this tasted together! lucia finished off the evening with a lesson on making the perfect old-fashioned cocktail!
