The English Grill at the Brown Hotel pairs with renowned ham producer

The world’s finest dry-cured hams will be the main attraction at the Brown Hotel on Friday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. when Col. Bill Newsom’s Aged Kentucky Country Ham and the English Grill present a one-of-a-kind 5-course dinner with cocktail pairings. Executive chef Laurent Geroli will highlight smokehouse aged country ham, bacon, sausage and prosciutto in a gourmet meal infused with Kentucky bourbon.

Nancy Newsom Mahaffey, “the Ham Lady” and current owner-operator of Col. Bill Newsom’s Aged Kentucky Country Ham, will share the story of her grandfather’s 95-year-old, family-operated ham business at the event. The company gained notoriety as a favorite of the late James Beard. Mahaffey will talk about the ‘lost art’ of artisanal ham curing and explain how she uses a 300-year-old process to hand-craft country delicacies at her Princeton, Ky. farm.

The dinner is $65 per person plus tax and gratuity. For more information or to make reservations, please call the Brown Hotel at (502) 583-1234.
