The Lee Brothers


For the 2014 Washington Winter Show Luncheon Lecture, we are delighted to announce that the Lee Brothers will discuss the history and evolution of Southern cuisine in their presentation Exploring the Charleston Kitchen.

Matt Lee and Ted Lee, founders of the Lee Bros. Boiled Peanuts Catalogue, a mail-order source for Southern pantry staples, grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. They are the authors of "The Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook," which won the James Beard Award for Cookbook of the Year in 2007, and "The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern," which won the IACP Award for Best American Cookbook in 2011. In their new book, "The Lee Brothers Charleston Kitchen" they deliver the city's most iconic dishes and introduce the reader to their friends who make living in the Lowcountry so delicious. 
     “The Lee Bros. 'Charleston Kitchen' is a work of art; it brings
      the city of Charleston to every home lucky enough to own this
      book.” —
Pat Conroy

They are contributing editors for Travel & Leisure and contributors on the Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats.

The Washington Winter Show Saturday Lecture for 2014 features the author of Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns and Other Southern Specialties: An Entertaining Life (With Recipes).

Join Julia Reed, author of several books on Southern entertaining and cuisine, as she takes you on a lively and very personal tour of the culinary and social South.  A master storyteller, Ms. Reed will share her thoughts on good cooking and the lessons of gracious entertaining that pass from generation to generation. A Mississippi native and current resident of New Orleans, Reed is also a contributing editor at Newsweek, where she writes the “food and drink” column, appears regularly on CNN, and is a contributor to Garden & Gun, Conde Nast Traveler, ElleDecor, The New York Times, and Vogue, where she has written profiles on George and Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Carolina Herrera.  Her books, “The House on First Street, My New Orleans Story,” “Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns, and Other Southern Specialties,” “Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena,” and “But Mama Always Put Vodka in Her Sangria,”  showcase her unparalleled humor and delectable recipes.  After the talk, attendees will nibble on ham biscuits, compliments of Louisiana native Chef David Guas of Bayou Bakery.

Bourbon Tasting
Jefferson's BourbonThe Washington Winter Show welcomes Trey Zoeller, of Jefferson's Bourbon, to Jazz Night.  Jefferson’s Bourbon is a collection of “Ridiculously Small Batch” straight whiskeys produced by skillfully marrying a selection of barrels of various ages. Founded over fifteen years ago by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet, a well-known bourbon historian, Jefferson’s Bourbon pays homage to the country’s Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson.  A man widely recognized for his scientific mind and experimental nature, Thomas Jefferson has served as a source of inspiration for the ever-evolving Jefferson’s brand.
