Flavor Magazine & R.H. Ballard
Hosting Book, Food & Wine Events
to Benefit Rappahannock Food Pantry

On May 14th, 2011, FLAVOR Magazine and R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery are hosting two fabulous events to benefit the Rappahannock Food Pantry.

From 2:00 - 4:30pm, join us at R.H. Ballard for a delicious Book & Wine Event featuring Jason Tesauro, acclaimed author and speaker who will entertain us with musings on the art of a gentlemanly lifestyle, give advice about food and wine pairings, explore manners and etiquette in the modern world, and sign copies of his just-released book:

The Modern Gentleman: A Guide to Essential Manners, Savvy and Vice, 2nd Edition.

Barboursville Vineyards will be on site pouring their award-winning wines, and delectable nibbles and superb Virginia fare will be served. A tasty and engaging event not to be missed!

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the Rappahannock Food Pantry, serving those in need in Rappahannock County, Virginia.

Just steps away, be sure to attend FLAVOR Magazine's spectacular food and wine event which takes place at The Meadows, the historic home of John & Beverly Sullivan.
The Meadows, Washington, VA
Tickets for this benefit are $85.00 and can be purchased online at, and email at, (540) 987-9299. Proceeds from this event will go to the Rappahannock Food Pantry.

There will be an amazing wine auction, delicious foods from Rappahannock County, and superb Virginia wines chosen by a select group of wine experts and sommeliers, including: Kathryn Morgan, Master Sommelier at Citronelle, Dave MacIntyre of The Washington Post, Andy Myers, Sommelier at City Zen, Jennifer Knowles, Wine Director at the Inn at Little Washington, Kevin Switz, Sommelier at Foti's, Ramon Navaerz, Wine Director at Adour, Bill Plante, CBS White House Correspondent, and Melissa Harris, Publisher and Founder of Flavor Magazine.
