A pastoral 4,200 acre estate in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm is one of America’s most celebrated luxury hotels with a restaurant that boasts the elite designation of “Relais Gourmand,” the highest mark of culinary excellence within the Relais & Chateaux Organization.  The property, a gastronomic wonderland, features orchards, a dairy, woods in which to forage, and heirloom vegetable gardens.  In addition to supplying the restaurant with amazing meats, veggies, cheeses, jams and more, Blackberry Farm offers the opportunity for guests to experience and better understand the relationship between the land, the food we eat, and the beauty of eating locally and seasonally.  In the farm’s first cookbook, chef/owner Sam Beall offers stories, photographs, and, of course, amazing recipes from this very special place.  Join him, Barbara Lynch, and the staff of Stir on Monday, December 7, Tuesday, December 8, or Wednesday, December 9 for an evening of food, wine and wisdom, at 102 Waltham Street in Boston.  The $145 cost includes a copy of Mr. Beall’s book.  Reserve now by calling 617-423-7847, or stopping by 102 Waltham Street in the South End (across the street from B&G Oysters.)  See more fabulous course offerings at
