Nashville is currently one of the “in” cities on the food scene as well as the birthplace of Martha White®. Over one hundred years ago, Martha White began providing Southern cooks with great baking products. In Nashville, we’ve always had wonderful Southern cooks, great “meat and three” restaurants and hot chicken! But now, local chefs are getting national acclaim and celebrity chefs are opening restaurants all over town.
Along with good products, home cooking and great restaurants, there are also food events and tours throughout the city all year long. Each event has its own theme and all celebrate the culinary arts.
Coming up soon, Nashville State Community College Foundation’s annual tasting event – Tennessee Flavors – highlights local food and beverage artisans. Featuring everything from bacon to caviar and candy, this event is an opportunity to taste a wide variety of Nashville’s finest offerings.
In May, we celebrate Nashville Street Food Month. Day after day, Nashville’s famed food trucks are parked and ready to serve their delicious treats. All year long there are fun, interesting and tasty events for you to enjoy like Taste of Music City, Music City Hot Chicken Festival, Nashville Rib and Jazz Festival and on and on.
The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. lists over 50 events celebrating Nashville’s rich culinary scene. Of course, when in Nashville, you’ll never be far from good food and good country music. These delicious Red Carpet Sweet Potato Cupcakes were developed to celebrate the CMA Awards. Speaking of CMA, there’s still time to enter The Martha White® 2017 Nothing But Country Promotion.
