Nashville is big in to music, as we all know. The whole Music City thing and all. But we’re also in to food. In comes Savor Nashville. It’s a two-day celebration of yummy. Challenge to the Chefs takes place at Union Station Hotel on Friday, April 12, 2013. Top local chefs compete in a cookoff using locally produced ingredients provided to them. Guests can sample and vote for their favorite (while enjoying cocktails and live music). And a panel of celebrity judges will choose the winners. This year’s chefs include: Karl Worley (Biscuit Love), Paul Wright (Eastland Cafe), Kevin Ramquist (F. Scott’s), Matthew Lackey (Flyte), Kevin Powell (M. Restaurant & Bar), Brandon Frohne (Mason’s), Joe Brogna (Park Cafe), Robert Spinelli (Perl Cafe), Thomas Cook (Prime 108), Chris Futrell (Pub5), B.J. Lofback (Riff’s Fine Street Food), and Anita Hortel (Rosebud Bistro).
Then on Saturday, April 13, there’s the Celebrity Chef Dinner at Hutton Hotel. Jonathan Waxman, Jeff Michaud, Edward Lee, Jeremy Ashby, and Robbie Wilson will prepare a 7-course dinner. Wine pairings and live music will accompany the dinner. A portion of the proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.
