6th Annual Tennessee Flavors Kicked it up a Notch in 2017

6th Annual Tennessee Flavors Kicked it up a Notch in 2017

The 6th Annual Tennessee Flavors food and beverage tasting event was held Tuesday at Nashville State Community College’s Main Campus on White Bridge Road. Local and regional food and beverage artisans gathered together once again to benefit the students of Nashville State Community College through scholarship funds and gifts to the College that meet critical program needs. Guests enjoyed unlimited samples from premier food and beverage artisans in and around Nashville. Students from Nashville State’s Culinary Arts program were also featured and assisted chefs and other vendors throughout the evening. 

New this year was the addition of a Flavors Knife Fight presented by Springer Mountain Farms Chicken to showcase the talents of the students with mentorship from Nashville chefs Zach Wilkinson from Etch and Andrew Rodriguez from Pinewood Social. This “Fight” paired Nashville State Culinary students with the two area chefs as part of Springer’s Celebrate the Chef program in their mission to cultivate strong bonds among the culinary community. The two teams received a mystery basket of items and worked together in the timed event to prepare a dish.  Check out some of the awesome dishes featured below!
