Nashville Happenings


Here are some exciting happenings around town that are on my “must do” list the next few days!

Friday, November 19th

NFM Night Market

6:30 – 8 pm

Nashville Farmers’ Market
900 Rosa Parks Blvd
Nashville, TN 37208

The Nashville Farmers’ Market recently hosted their first “night market”, and it was a huge hit, so they’re doing it again! Go shop, sample and sip on some wine (or if you’re looking for something really fun, grab a Boozeball or a Whiskey Firecracker from Fleur de Lis!)  Head over to the NFM website for more details.

Gena Knox Demo and Cookbook Signing

11 am – 1 pm

Whole Foods- Green Hills
4021 Hillsboro Pike
Nashville, TN 37215

Gena Knox, the author of the new cookbook “Southern My Way: Simple Recipes, Fresh Flavors”, is coming to my neighborhood Whole Foods this weekend. I’m a sucker for cookbooks, and this one looks great. A peek inside reveals many awesome regional, seasonal recipes that I can’t wait to start making! I’ve actually had some experience with Gena’s recipes in the past, with fantastic results. Does anyone remember the Grilled Brie with Cranberries, Apricots, Pistachios and Honey Drizzle? Delicious.

Check out the Fire and Flavor website for more incredible recipes using Gena’s grilling planks, or learn more about Gena and her book tour on her personal website. Hope to see you on Saturday!
