Meet the Makers! Preserving Place, Proper Pepper, AND Lauri Jo's

Birdie's Market and Catering has been boasting how awesome the artisan products that we carry from local producers are, but we wanted to go a step further. We have invited the folks who are MAKING the very products that have been exciting ya'll since we opened and are having them come here for an exclusive "meet and greet"! 

In this all exclusive, three-fer, we are so excited to make this quite the social event! While pouring Farmer Daughter's delicious line of wines, we'll be highlighting Proper Pepper, Lauri Jo, and Preserving Place products in our delicious and new passed appetizers. While you munch and mingle, we'll have one of our chef's showing you how to make some of these unique appetizers yourself at a flaming action station! Meet the makers, learn about their stories, try their lines of artisan and local delectables, and watch our chef's go crazy on their creations! This Meet the Maker you DON'T want to miss! 

Proper Pepper Pimento Cheese is the love story between a girl and her pimento cheese that spans over a decade. This house-mom turned business professional is not joking when it comes to the classic cheddar-red pepper spread by using local ingredients, some secret spices and a lot of love. 

Preserving Place, based out of Atlanta, is at the forefront of the movement to capture the essense of Southern food by preserving our favorites in unique ways and flavors, for enjoying at any time. Vegetables and fruit are from local farmers and they use these connections to share their knowledge with you! 

Lauri Jo's family company started as a home-canning operation, using only local products and grandmother’s recipes of course. Over the years Lauri Joe was able to expand it into a full-fledge, international company with her business partner, Layne Varnedoe! And they puts their energies into their words, helping to develop the Georgia Grown label working with the Georgia Department of Agriculture and promoting agri-tourism. They makes sure their local, home-grown, and family-table tasting products are available all over the United States, but especially to all U.S. Naval bases worldwide. Meet Layne and learn how her and Lauri make their amazing products!
