Photos: Food Republic X Music To Your Mouth After-Party

In partnership with Music To Your Mouth, Food Republic yesterday hosted a test kitchen and after-party at Little Owl: The Venue in New York City's Greenwich Village. The event focused on Southern cuisine, recipes and techniques, with well known chefs from around the country stopping by during the day to film interviews, chat about food, mix drinks and experiment in the kitchen with Southern-themed dishes.

Music To Your Mouth has been one of the food and drink world's best-kept secrets for the past seven years — with the festival held exclusively on the grounds of Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina. Looking to expand its footprint in the run-up to the eighth annual festival, Music To Your Mouth produced an event in Austin in April and will host another from June 27-29 in Lake James, North Carolina before hosting its annual event at Palmetto Bluff, November 18-23. Take a look at some of the photos from last night's after party, which included Southern bites from chef Sean Brock of Husk in Charleston and Nashville, and chef Brandon Carter of Palmetto Bluff.
