If it seems like Nashville is everywhere these days—that’s because it is. It’s on TV, GQ recently declared it “Nowville,” and it’s become the music hotspot for both country and rock. But as hot as the music scene is, the food scene is even hotter. In Nashville Eats, more than 125 mouthwatering recipes reveal why foodies are headed South for Nashville’s hot chicken, buttermilk biscuits, pulled pork sandwiches, cornmeal-crusted catfish, chow chow, fried green tomatoes and chess pie. Author Jennifer Justus whips up the classics—such as pimento cheese and fried chicken, but also includes dishes with a twist on traditional Southern fare—such as the Curried Black Chickpeas or the Catfish Tacos. And alongside the recipes, Jennifer shares her stories of Nashville—the people, music, history and food that make it so special.
