Generous Helpings and The Best Dessert

A few weeks from now, one of the best food tasting events in Nashville takes place. Generous Helpings, an annual fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank, features bite-size portions of appetizers, entrees, desserts from a variety of popular local eateries like Holland House, F. Scott’s, Sweet 16th Bakery, Table 3, tayst, Pied Piper Creamery, and Fido, just to name a few (see here for full list). It’s an event that I personally never miss, and recommend that you add it to your calendar as well.

What: Generous Helpings

5:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Where: Nashville Farmers’ Market
900 Rosa Parks Boulevard
Nashville, TN 37208

Tickets are $40 in advance here, or $50 at the door. But since I like you all so much, I’m giving away a pair of tickets ($80 value) to a lucky reader!

Lately the question of “what’s the best dessert in Nashville?” has been popping up a lot, and sadly, I don’t really have an answer. A few years ago, my hands-down favorite dessert in a Nashville restaurant was Mirror’s banana bread pudding with caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream. Since it’s been gone, I’ve had a few stellar desserts here and there, but none that I go back for over and over again. So that’s where you come in. In order to win this pair of tickets I have up for grabs, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you think the most amazing sweet treat in Nashville is!
