Fans of Vivek’s blog finally get the opportunity to enjoy the amazing menus he’s got rattling around in his head! $45 per person or $65 per person with pairings of libations.

Sunday, May 20th
Savor Nashville Challenge to the Chefs

12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Union Station Hotel Lobby
1001 Broadway  Nashville, TN 37203

For $35 per person, you get to watch some of the area’s best chefs compete against each other in a cook-off using a selection of local products: Goo Goo Cluster, Benton’s Bacon, and Jack Daniel’s Honey. Guests will get to sample what the chefs create, plus enjoy a Bloody Mary bar, samples from Jack Daniel’s Honey, Juice Nashville, and Cascal.  Guests will get to vote for their favorite as well. I probably won’t be doing much sampling, but I do hope to do some friendly heckling to a few of the competing chefs. More information here.

Shew! That’s a lot! I think I’ll have a salad for lunch today!
