Huntsville Restaurant Week & The Food Blogger Tour – #DineHSV

It’s no surprise that the south contributes an eccentric flair to the culinary scene with its rich history and no shortage of immigrant influences. I simply couldn’t imagine my life without southern food or the hospitality for that matter and it comes without saying that Huntsville, Alabama wasn’t short on either. Last weekend I took a little three-day mini-vat down to our Nashville neighbor after being invited by the CVB to explore the food scene in their fare town. This recent trip to Huntsville was different from what I remember of my last visit some 15 years ago when I was a young one, more than likely – I was being dragged by the parental units to visit extended family. But enough about me, you’re here to find out about the good stuff, like where to eat and what to do? There’s more than 50 local restaurants participating, each one offering a Restaurant Week special. Lunches are set at $5, $10, and $15, while dinners are set at $10, $20, and $30. So there’s no reason why you shouldn’t …

Green Bean Delivery Service, Vegetable Soup & $15 Off Your First Order!

            Your local CSA’s are in full swing. Farmers can’t keep up with the Summer’s harvest as it sprouts from the soil thanks to Spring’s rain. And it’s one of my favorite time’s of year because produce is flowing freely and I can barely keep up with the veggies from farmers markets in the fridge before they go bad. That’s one of the reasons I’m happy to tell you about a food delivery service here in Nashville, Green Bean Delivery. The Green Bean Delivery service approached me with the offer to receive a FREE bin of goodies from their selection of local/non-local produce and groceries. I couldn’t resist the opportunity because my wife and I work very busy schedules and its hard to go grocery shopping sometimes. So this just seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out to see if it was something we’d be interested in doing more than once and we have. Check out the 5 reasons while you’ll love them from organic offerings to supporting local and fighting …

Southeastern Cuisine and The Asheville Wine & Food Festival!

  In anticipation for the Asheville Wine & Food Festival we’ll be talking all things southern food today, and why not? It’s only an intricate part of our lives here in the south and since the arrival of spring the fields have come to life with sun-kissed produce for harvesting. The creak of  screen doors have begun singing, honey suckle is running wild, the crickets are demanding your attention and the smell of smoked meat is in the air. Southern cuisine is the heartbeat of the southeast United States.   When I hear the word ‘food’ the first thing that comes to mind is ‘southern food’. Not simply because it’s mainly what I know but because it’s what I love. It is what I grew up eating around the dinner table and what I will die eating around the dinner table. Southern food is so rich in history and influenced by so many cultures that in #essence, southern food is ‘our’ food. We, a collection of people from different parts of the world all contributing …

Second Harvest Food Bank

Generous Helpings & A Giveaway! (CONTEST CLOSED)

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee started in 1978 with dedicated community leaders who wanted to provide a central distribution center for companies, groups and individuals who desired to help provide food for hungry people in Middle Tennessee. Second Harvest’s mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. Did you know that one in four children in the state of Tennessee are food insecure? Could you imagine not knowing where your next meal was going to come from? Having to juggle which is more important, getting gas for work tomorrow or buying dinner for your family? Well, you may have never faced these challenges but many families in Middle Tennessee and across the state are. The Second Harvest Food Bank provided somewhere around twenty-million meals to hungry children, families and seniors last year?   The SHFBMT will be hosting its annual Generous Helpings Fundraiser on Thursday, May 15 from 6-9 p.m. at the Nashville Farmer’s Market. And I’m elated to be partnering with them in giving away two tickets to …
