While the 2015 Music City Food + Wine Festival may be over, we’ll always have our wonderful memories of a weekend full of chef demos, tastings, book signings, and some of the best music Nashville has to offer! Check out our 2015 recap video and photos below.
Over the last two days, festival goers got aquatinted with chefs, artisans, and restaurants from Nashville and beyond – so let’s take a look back at what they enjoyed!
The packed day continued with Chef demos, and some special guests proved that even the best chefs can use some assistance! Pat Martin joined Andrew Zimmern on stage during his demo “Spicy? Ewe Betcha!” and Aaron Sanchez helped out Tim Love on stage during his demo “For Goodness Steak.” Even Kings of Leon’s Nathan Followill showed up to Love’s demo – and Love later returned the favor by joining the band on stage for Harvest Night!
“You can prepare elegant food with a simple fire, and all you need is some salt, pepper and acid such as lemon juice or lime juice,” Martin advised. “And it’s OK to have fun cooking and eating with your hands, and still be classy.”
The party continued on Saturday night with Harvest Night. This unique event brought together food and music in beautiful harmony!
Foodies returned to Bicentennial Park on Sunday morning for a Gospel Brunch featuring Robert Randolph with the Nashville Friends Gospel Choir. 404 Kitchen’s Matt Bolus crafted the menu to fuel attendees for another day of the festival!
But brunch goers had to be careful not to fill up too quickly – another day of tastings and demos awaited them! The Tito’s Bloody Mary Bar kept everyone sipping in style, and everywhere you looked there was Hattie B’s fried chicken in someone’s hand!
