On September 10, Sweetest Chefs of the South hosted a sell-out crowd at The Lake House in Ridgeland, Mississippi where the South’s hottest pastry chefs were showcased at the South’s sweetest event of the year.
Guests at this premium food and drink event were greeted at the Mercedes of Jackson One Sweet Ride Welcome Tents with a selection of sparkling wine and champagne options. VIPs early admission thru a separate entrance and were greeted with a stocked swag bag courtesy of event partners.
Dessert tastings and live cooking demos from featured pastry chefs, specialty cocktails and spirits tastings, beer tastings from Mississippi breweries, live music by Kerry Thomas, premium coffee cupping and chocolate tastings and even a separate cigar porch highlighted the stunning evening capped off by a magnificent sunset and savory foods from local Ridgeland restaurants.
