Field Studio will premiere its VFH-supported film, The Hail-Storm: John Dabney in Virginia, at the John Dabney Dinner—a signature event presented as part of Fire, Flour & Fork, a food festival in Richmond, Virginia, on Thursday, November 2, 2017, from 6:00-9:00 pm.

The film reveals the long-hidden history of an African American restaurateur born enslaved and ultimately renowned in Richmond for his skill, charm, and social savvy. The film features two creations for which Dabney was well-known—canvasback duck and “hail-storm” mint juleps—and the dinner, cooked by a master chef, will present a menu inspired by Dabney’s entire oeuvre.
