Country ham dinner pairs AZUR Restaurant & Patio chef with author Steve Coomes Nov. 12

Nov 12, 2014 7:00 PM

Azur Restaurant and Patio in Lexington
Author Steve Coomes will bring stories of the timeless Southern tradition of country ham to a special dining event at AZUR Restaurant & Patio Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. AZUR chef Jeremy Ashby, inspired by recipes in Coomes’ recently released book Country Ham: A Southern Tradition of Hogs, Salt & Smoke, has created a four-course menu highlighting the Kentucky delicacy. An avid cook of cured meats, Ashby will prepare some of world’s best aged pork while Coomes gives diners the rub on the regional history of country ham and its ascent from blue-collar staple to fine dining feature. The cost is $45.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Guests can also purchase a personalized copy Coomes’ book for an additional $15. For more information or to make reservations, call (859) 296-1007.

The country ham dinner menu includes:

First Course
Sautéed chicken livers with country ham, caramelized onions, Marsala wine and sage sauce and crackling cornbread crostini
Inspired by Volare chef Joshua Moore’s vitello saltimbocca with a Kentucky taste (Louisville, Ky.)

Second Course
Nashville hot-style fried quail stuffed with country ham and cheddar with sweet and sour greens, tomato-pepper jelly and hot fries
Inspired by The Hamery’s cheddar and ham cheese ball (Murfreesboro, Tenn.)

Third Course
Butter-braised cabbage with smoked country ham hocks and kimchee over potato-Gruyere puree and caraway-dusted chicharron
Inspired by Harper’s Country Ham’s ham hocks and cabbage dinner (Clinton, Ky.)

Fourth Course
Sweet and savory country ham-infused ice cream with sweet potato biscuits, sorghum and roasted apple caramel
Inspired by chef John Varanese’s sweet potato biscuits (Louisville, Ky.) and Feast BBQ chef Ryan Roger’s country ham ice cream (New Albany, Ind.)

Japanese Rakugo "Sitdown Comedy" Storyteller in English!

Lyric Theater, Lexington KY
Japan’s answer to stand-up comedy, Rakugo is a 400-year-old tradition of comic storytelling. As popular today as it ever was, Rakugo (literally “falling word”) has, until recently, had little exposure in North America, but that is all about to change. Canadian Katsura Sunshine, the only foreign storyteller among almost 700 practicing professionals today, aims to shine the spotlight on this ancient art form with his English translations of Rakugo’s classic stories.



Katsura Sunshine comes to Kentucky for the first time to perform this traditional (and very funny!) Japanese storytelling art!

An Evening with C.S. Lewis

Lyric Theater, 300 E. 3rd St. Lexington, KY 40508
Acclaimed British actor David Payne is bringing his wonderfully witty portrayal of Lewis to the Lyric Theater in Lexington on April 8 at 7pm. Tickets are $20, $30 and $40 for VIP seats which will also include a Meet and Greet with Payne.

A brief outline of the the show:

The year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home, just outside of Oxford.
They have come to hear a man whose writings have already established him as one of the most influential authors of his day and they are about to be treated to a display of powerful oratory and great humor as he recounts the significant events and the people that shaped his life.

"An Evening with CS Lewis" has proved to be an enthralling theatrical experience for the many thousands who have attended its performances and is a fascinating and riveting insight into the life of a man whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of 20th century.
