Culture and Cuisine in Tennessee
Tennessee is the place to be for top-notch barbecue and stick-to-your-ribs homestyle cooking. But if you think the states culinary offerings all lie on the casual side, you’ll miss out on some of the finest food around. Many talented chefs call Tennessee home, and the restaurants, resorts and tucked-away spots where you’ll find them offer experiences you’ll savour.
Tennessee is home to many food festivals including the Memphis in May, a month long celebration of music, food and local heritage.
The Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg is the most famous distillery in Tennessee but Tennessee is also home to the George Dickel distillery and many other wineries and microbreweries. You can also follow the Jack and George Trail through Tennessee to discover more about the whiskey distilleries.
As well as wonderful cuisine, Tennessee is famous for its natural beauty, but this is also a state full of culture, so why not visit some of their museums full of Tennessee’s arts and crafts heritage or browse the galleries and arts districts including the Memphis Brooks Museum of Modern Art and the Bluff View Art District in Chattanooga.
