Guy Fieri to host Oaks Bourbon Brunch in May 2009

Kentucky's Courier Journal reports Guy Fieri will host the inaugural Marriott Oaks Bourbon Brunch on Friday May 1, 2009.

The event features Guy Fieri, renowned pastry chef Gale Gand and mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim with on-site cooking demonstrations, savory food and beverage pairings and incredible silent and live auction items — all for a great cause.

"At the brunch, Fieri will put on a cooking demo using Kentucky Proud products in the bourbon-based courses, mixing in a dash of his signature flair."

Brunch will be held at the Marriott Louisville Downtown from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Tickets are $125. Proceeds benefit the Louisville-based Home of the Innocents.

The Home is the region's open arms to kids in crisis — caring for children of abuse, abandonment and neglect, those who are medically fragile, and children with autism. Last year alone, the Home provided services to over two thousand children and families.

Wow, Guy puts on a cooking demo for abused kids featuring ingredients such as alcohol. Way to go.

Anon 10:19 - you're equating 'cooking with alcohol' with 'child abuse'? Naw. Child abuse is a MUCH more complicated dynamic than that.

Read "A Child Named 'It'." Great book.
