    Meat Me in Memphis mixes Monogram, chefs

    Memphis Business Journal -

    If you’ve ever wanted to taste a gourmet King Cotton hot dog, or beef jerky incorporated into a dish prepared by a top chef in Memphis, you might want to be at Beale Street Landing on Nov. 1.
    Monogram Food Solutions is kicking off Meat Me in Memphis, a benefit for the company’s Monogram Loves Kids Foundation at the soon-to-be completed Beale Street Landing.
    The event, a “soul-and-sausage-themed benefit,” will feature at least 12 local chefs, including Erling Jensen of Erling Jensen the Restaurant; Alex Grisanti of Elfo’s; James Gentry of Paradox Catering and L’Ecole Culinaire; Michael Francis of Heart & Soul Catering; Michael Patrick of Rizzo’s Diner and Thomas Schnider of Jim & Nick’s Bar-B-Q. Each chef will select a Monogram food product to build into a dish and a signature item from their restaurants.
    The event will also feature live music, a silent auction and the first glimpse for many attendees of the view from Beale Street Landing.
    The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation raises money and supports local organizations that focus on helping children and their families. Karl Schledwitz, CEO of Monogram Foods, hopes it will become an annual event.
    Meat Me in Memphis will be held from 5:30-9 p.m. Tickets are $125. Contact Kaitlyn Phillips at kphillips@monogramfoods.com or (901) 685-7167.
