Tru’s Frosty Tribute

Tru by Hilton Pigeon Forge’s Frosty the Snowman inflatable was vandalized on Friday 11/23/18.   The team at Tru ordered a new Frosty immediately. However, due to the overwhelming public response and concern, they thought the incident would be a great opportunity to turn the tragedy into a triumph of goodwill! They solicited donations in Frosty’s remembrance to Mountain Hope and raised $1,000 to help those who live and work in Sevier County but have no medical insurance. What a wonderful Christmas gift from the Tru team!  We at Mountain Hope are grateful!

Assorted meat and vegetables on barbecue grill cooked for summer family dinner

Mountain Hope Appalachian Field Festival

October 6 is a date to remember. On that date, your taste buds are in for a delight.

On Saturday, Oct. 6, in a field somewhere in Sevier County, Chef Adam Palmeno will prepare a pig roast as a very special fundraiser for Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic. Palmeno and his catering company, Private Chef, are already earning rave reviews across East Tennessee for his wonderful food.

Palmeno will prepare roast pig and all the trimmings in his own style. His specialty is New World cuisine, which takes traditional recipes and adds a twist. This will be no ordinary barbecue.

He grew up in South Florida and learned to cook in the Florida Keys. After a stint in Charleston, NC learning Low Country cuisine, he is now at home recreating traditional Appalachian dishes with a delicious difference.

Private Chef cooks for couples, parties, wedding and anniversary celebrations, creating dishes from scratch on site. Palmeno particularly likes catering big events such as field festivals, where he and his staff build an outdoor kitchen two or three days in advance, then roast pork or other meats slowly and create a delectable buffet.

So save October 6 for Mountain Hope’s own Appalachian Field Festival. Details will follow.
