NASHVILLE, TN, JULY 5, 2021 – During July, Duke's Mayonnaise is partnering with the Butcher & Bee restaurant group to celebrate flavors of the Southeast, presenting four seasonal menus that feature Duke's mayo and heirloom tomatoes. The rotating menus, from the executive chef team behind Butcher & Bee concepts and Chef Mark Cates of Duke's, will feature unique takes on BLTs and other southern staples such as tomato pie and fried green tomatoes.
The Butcher & Bee name encapsulates four restaurant concepts, including Butcher & Bee Charleston, The Daily Charleston, Redheaded Stranger Nashville, and Butcher & Bee Nashville. The flavors on each menu vary, while using only locally sourced ingredients, like heirloom tomatoes from Kindlewood Farms Charleston and Farm & Fiddle located in Nashville.
"We've been using Duke's at the Bee and RHS for as long as we've been using mayo," said Executive Chef of Redheaded Stranger, Bryan Weaver. "It's part of what makes our menus special and has gone into so many condiments over the years.”
The series invites people to enjoy traditional flavors and the exploration of new ones. So besides Duke's classic real mayo, the menus will also feature Duke’s new products including, habanero garlic, cucumber dill, and bacon and tomato flavored mayos.
"Duke's is excited to partner with the Butcher & Bee group to celebrate these regional flavors," said Duke's Brand Manager of Mayohem, Rebecca Lupesco. "This series will allow diners to try existing and new Duke's products as they taste best, chef-curated and paired with local produce."
The two groups have also collaborated on custom t-shirts with sales benefitting Pay it Forward, a nonprofit started by Michael Shemtov and team Butcher & Bee. Pay it Forward is dedicated to providing financial relief to members of the Charleston Restaurant Community through grants.
