Herons is pleased to host “Rooted in the South,” on Wed., Dec. 5 to benefit the Southern Foodways Alliance. Two-time James Beard Award Semifinalist Chef Steven Greene and Pastry Chef Jonathan Fisher will highlight the winter produce from One Oak Farm with this creative 5 course dinner. 50 percent of the evenings proceeds will be donated to the SFA, which documents, studies and explores the diverse food cultures of the changing American South.
