Cleaver & Cork

Cleaver and Cork is Tallahassee Community College (TCC) Foundation’s signature event. This year’s experience will feature the talents of Food Network personality Chef Amanda Freitag in a farm to table wine affair styled by local event extraordinaire John Gandy.

The evening will celebrate the essence of the region with a four-course meal featuring locally sourced ingredients and an abundance of southern hospitality. The meal will be paired with sommelier selected wines from around the world. In addition to dinner, guests will have the opportunity to take part in our wine, bourbon, and scotch pull-downs.

All proceeds from Cleaver and Cork will benefit the TCC Foundation, which supports TCC by providing funding that elevates educational program opportunities, provides scholarships, and enhances teaching and learning facilities.

Cleaver & Cork will be hosted at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens on Friday, March 2, 2018 starting at 6:00 pm. For more information on Cleaver and Cork, please select "Purchase Cleaver and Cork Tickets".
