Slow-Ass Country Breakfast
An installation/buffet by
Artist/American-Spotted-ass farmer Karin Bolender
"Roll on over to Madison County and taste the terroir of our rural countryside, from doomed hayfields to deep woods and rolling pastures. If you think you can hack it, come gather around a fire pit at the crack of dawn of a winter morning and sample a hearty helping of twenty-first-century country fare, an eclectic buffet of edibles and oddities drawn from the local habitations of livestock and wildlife: from ass-milk pancakes to wild persimmon jam and squirrel stew, this country breakfast will fill you up with unique flavors and essences of North Georgia country like you’ve never known them before. "
See the artist's website for more info.
