Sunday Supper Series with Sam Fore
April 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
We are so excited to host Chef Sam Fore for the upcoming dinner in our Sunday Supper Series. On April 18th, Sam will be doing what she does best— reinterpreting traditional Sri Lankan dishes with an imaginative southern twist! Be prepared for a bold and exciting dining experience as the flavors of the tropics meet the sensibility of the south.
Dinner will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres, followed by a
four-course dinner with drink pairings.
Samantha Fore is a first-generation Sri Lankan-American chef from Lexington, Kentucky. She started her pop up restaurant in 2016, after traditional Sri Lankan brunches in her home outgrew her dining room. Tuk Tuk Sri Lankan Bites menus include chef Sam‘s spin on Southern classics and riffs on her mother’s time-tested recipes. Tuk Tuk is one of the few representations of Sri Lankan cuisine in the United States and reflects Sam’s Sri Lankan upbringing in the American South. Her work has been featured in multiple national publications (including the cover of Food & Wine magazine) and she can be seen on PBS’s Somewhere South. She was named one of Plate Magazine’s 2018 Chefs to Watch and was selected as one of Southern Living’s 2020 Cooks of the Year.
