Slow Food Nashville is hosting dinner tonight at Red Pony Restaurant, the styley place in downtown Franklin.

Appetizers of beef skewers and tostaditas are paired with Yazoo beer. A first course "sampler" of goat cheese and beet salad (attention Carrington!), boudin cake and chicken liver pate is paired with Arrington Vineyards gewurztraminer. A second course of sauteed prawns is paired with a sparkling cocktail of Corsair Gin. The entree is birria, a Mexican stew of goat and vegetables. Dessert is apple tart and a dessert martini.

Chef Jason McConnell's local sources include Hillview Farms, Old Spencer Mills, Hatcher Family Dairy, Mamushi Nature Farms, Real Food Farms, Bonnie Blue Farms, and Morning Glory Orchards.

Dinner starts at 6:30; cost is $70 per person. For more information, call Red Pony, 408 Main St., Franklin, 595-7669.
