Watermark Schedules Resolution Dinner

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 7:58 AM

Chef Bob Waggoner of Watermark Restaurant in the Gulch has worked in some pretty well-known restaurants around the South. As a result, he has a Rolodex full of famous chef friends who he can call on to help him out with charity events. In fact, it was at that sort of event that I first had the pleasure to enjoy Chef Waggoner's food when then-chef Louis Osteen invited him to a James Beard dinner.

Now Waggoner is digging into his little black book to invite two exceptional chefs from Charleston to help out with what he's calling a "Resolution Dinner," on Sunday, Jan. 20, to benefit Louie's Kids, a group that fights childhood obesity. Michelle Weaver of the Charleston Grill and Frank Lee of Slightly North of Broad (S.N.O.B.) will join Waggoner and Watermark pastry chef Sam Tucker to create a four-course meal with wine pairings for diners for the totally reasonable price of $100.

There will also be a live auction featuring travel and merchandise items to benefit the charity, and entertainment will be provided by singer-songwriters Bonnie Bishop and Julie Roberts. The evening starts with a champagne reception at 6 p.m., and here's the menu that lucky diners can expect:

1st Course - Michelle Weaver of the Charleston Grill (Charleston, SC)
Diver scallop ceviche with yuzu, vanilla and shiso.

2nd Course - Bob Waggoner of Watermark Restaurant (Nashville, TN)
Tennessee rabbit confit ravioli with parmesan sawmill gravy, chanterelles and artichokes in a lemon and roasted garlic brown butter jus.

3rd Course - Frank Lee of Slightly North of Broad (Charleston, SC)
Roasted Manchester Farms quail filled with a Carolina savory pork sausage over garnet mustard greens and a butternut squash mousseline in a zinfandel reduction.

4th Course - Sam Tucker of Watermark Restaurant (Nashville, TN)
Dessert Trio
Rocky road terrine with creme anglaise and peanut nougatine.
Caramel pecan tart with St. Andre ice cream.
Banana semifreddo with rum banana cake.
