Move Over, Fast Food: Slow Food Grows Into Middle Tennessee

Move over, fast food; slow and steady wins the race!

After the launch of Slow Food Middle Tennessee in Nashville only a few months ago, SFMTN is set to host a new Sunday Supper Club dinner series featuring Nashville chefs, brews, and locally sourced fixin's.

Chef-driven specialty dinners happen around this growing food city quite frequently. Not only are these dinners a great way to grow awareness about a new culinary project or organization, they build community and connection to our neighbors. Get excited for the new dinner series coming to town.

This dinner series is designed for the enlightened eaters and conscious consumers. It is for anyone who wants to help better connect farmers and consumers. A ticket to Sunday Supper Club means supporting Slow Food Middle Tennessee, a chapter of a grassroots movement striving to better food systems all over the world.

The first Sunday Supper Club is set for Sunday, June 25. It features two local chefs and a seasonally inspired menu featuring fresh ingredients from the farmers at the Nashville Food Project's agricultural training program, called Growing Together, a non-profit for Burmese and Bhutanese immigrants with agrarian backgrounds.

Chefs Jason Zygmont of The Treehouse and Tony Galzin of Nicky's Coal Fired are both gearing up for the first annual Sunday Supper Club. As a board member of SFMTN, Galzin says, "I'm really honored to be working with the Growing Together farmers as well as Jason on this dinner. It's a great kick off our Slow Food Middle Tennessee Sunday Supper Club series in partnership with the Nashville Farmers Market, and we're looking forward to putting on a great meal."

A $50 dollar ticket includes a welcome cocktail and the four-course dinner with beer pairings from Tennessee Brew Works. Additional brews are available for purchase at The Picnic Tap, the craft beer bar inside the farmers market. Also included: the opportunity to mingle with the farmers of Growing Together.

Slow Food Middle Tennessee's inaugural Sunday Supper Club is set for Sunday, June 25 at 6:30 p.m. It will be held at the Nashville Farmers Market at 900 Rosa L Parks Blvd.
