Smoky Mountain Magazine luncheon - table setting by Holly's Eventful Dining East Tennessee PBS hosted a small party for some public-relations big shots on Wednesday. Executives from Ackermann PR, Moxley Carmichael, The Tombras Group and Z11 Communications enjoyed a gourmet lunch provided by Holly’s Eventful Dining. The point of the gathering was for them to hear a little about “Smoky Mountain Magazine” from Taz Cable and me. Our new weekly show debuts Saturday, October 15 at 10:00 a.m.

From the salad to the cupcake, the food was nothing short of amazing. The main course was chicken wrapped in Benton’s bacon with a moonshine molasses reduction. There’s a photo on the new SMOMOtv Facebook page. Benton’s bacon is a popular conversation topic with almost everyone in East Tennessee. I told one of the PR execs how much I preferred cooking bacon in the oven rather than on the stove. She’s going to make her husband try it that way.

Smoky Mountain Magazine luncheon - parting gifts from Troy & Sons The guests received some 80-proof parting gifts from Troy & Sons Distillers, a moonshine company based in Asheville, North Carolina. They also got an East Tennessee PBS mug filled with Sharpie markers, which are made in Maryville, Tennessee.
