We can hardly believe that the 2016 Music City Food + Wine Festival is over! But what a weekend – between demos, tastings, and panels, we kept our minds and bellies full. We don’t want to let go just yet – so here’s a recap video and some of our favorite photos from this year to relive the best weekend ever. Well, until next year…
The day continued with Chef demos, tastings, and panels. Some opted to mix things up…
While others cooked mussels with Ludo Lefebvre…
Or chatted with Nancy Silverton at her book signing.
With all the great drinks, we definitely stayed hydrated.
We had a party in our pantry with Tony Mantuano…
And then we partied with DJ Mel, ending Day 1 of MCFW with a lot of dancing, and an epic Elton John sing along.
Saturday night, we headed down to Walk of Fame Park for Harvest Night. We dined, drank, and danced the night away with an all-star lineup curated by the Kings of Leon. Lee Ann Womack, Jorge Blanco, Holly Williams, Langhorne Slim, Jessie Baylin, Matt Shultz, Aaron Lewis, Hunter Hayes, Shaun Jacobs, Charles Kelley, and Colin Hay all came out and sang some of the greatest hits of the 80s!
Of course, the Chefs were not going to be outdone by the music! Mashama Bailey, Matt Bolus, Sean Brock, Lisa Donovan, Kelly Fields, Vivian Howard, Katy Keefe, Billy Durney, Tim Love, Tony Mantuano, Nancy Silverton, Ludo Lefebvre, Tandy Wilson, Aarón Sánchez, Michael Symon, and Jonathan Waxman.
We woke up Sunday to a beautiful, sunny day. It was the perfect day for a Gospel Brunch! Gale Mayes kicked it off with her gorgeous, strong voice, and had everyone dancing and singing along.
Of course, we had to pause for a moment to grab a Tito’s Bloody Mary from the Bloody Mary bar too.
Once again, the Grand Taste tent was a sight – and taste – to behold.
Thanks, Nashville. We had an amazing time with you this weekend.
