It’s not really a secret that Tennesseans love their food. Let’s face it — we’re really, really good at making the best barbecue, cornbread, catfish, hot chicken, biscuits, and pretty much every other Southern food you could ever think of. Plus, we make the best whiskey with which to wash it all down. But I think we can all agree that the best food ever is bacon. So it’s no surprise that there’s an annual festival held every year right here in Nashville that celebrates both our local whiskey and our local chefs who make some of the most amazing bacon creations you’ve ever seen.

Did you know that Nashville is home to a restaurant in on old blacksmith’s shop? It’s actually one of the best in the city.
