The feast is headlined by vodka-braised smoked brisket, barrel-smoked pork, stuffed drunken summer vegetables and bread pudding. Master distillers join Buechele to discuss the creative process behind this swine dining experience. Sticky fingers meet happy feet as Miss Jubilee serves up hot jazz and tangy swing throughout the evening.
