Big Bad Breakfast Block Party

Join James Beard Award winner, “Top Chef Masters” contestant, and acclaimed author John Currence as he brings the joys and rituals of the Southern breakfast to life in Denver. Diners will experience an all-inclusive meal featuring a menu with recipes from his best-selling book, Big Bad Breakfast – and it wouldn’t be a breakfast party without a bloody mary bar! John Currence is one of the most celebrated and loved chefs in the South. Among his string of highly successful restaurants in Oxford, Mississippi, Big Bad Breakfast holds a special place in diners’ hearts: It is a gathering place where people from all walks come together to share the most important meal of the day, breakfast.

TABASCO® Brand offers attendees the rare opportunity to taste tabasco pepper mash straight from Avery Island, Louisiana, where every bottle of TABASCO® Sauce is crafted. Aged for three years in white oak barrels, the pepper mash is what gives TABASCO® Sauce its complex and distinctive flavor.

Many thanks to Tabasco & Camellia Brand for providing the unique opportunity to experience the Big Bad Breakfast in Denver at Slow Food Nations.
