Southern Women’s Show offers Music City a rare opportunity to sample the latest food trends sweeping the nation, compete in interactive cooking challenges and get a behind the scenes look at culinary experts in the kitchen for four whole days. With appearances from MasterChef finalists to Southern cookbook authors to registered dieticians, Nashville foodies have endless options to explore diverse culinary creations at the Kroger Cooking Stage presented by MIX 92.9 at the premier event for women – the Southern Women’s Show March 7-10.

Throughout the four days, the Kroger Cooking Stage is packed with family-friendly and entertaining cooking demonstrations, such as:

  • Kombucha Kraze: Learn about this drink gaining popularity, its health benefits and how it can be homebrewed, with lessons from The Steeped Tea Nashville
  • Local Restaurant Chef Demos: Signature recipes shared from top-notch cooks from Loveless Café, Caffee Nonna, Big Al’s Deli, Dulce Desserts and more
  • Pork to Fork: A presentation on local, sustainably raised pork from an eighth generation farmer, Brandon Whitt
  • Mastering the Old-Fashioned Fried Peach Pie: A lost Southern art that makes the perfect hostess trick, taught by local Nashville cookbook author Areeda Schneider
  • Cake Decorating Contest: On Mother Daughter Day (Sunday), teams put their frosting and piping skills to the test in a timed competition
  • Eating Right for a Good Night’s Sleep: Dietician Karman Meyer busts myths about food rules and shares nutrition tips to feel more rested.

“The food in Nashville is incomparable, and we love celebrating that through the Southern Women’s Show cooking stage,” said Stacy Abernethy, executive show manager of Southern Women’s Show. “What could be better than enjoying a delicious sample or learning a recipe, and knowing you can make at home and treat your family or impress at your next dinner party?”

The foodie fun doesn’t stop at the Kroger Cooking Stage, as there are also numerous other culinary favorites to sample and purchase throughout the Show floor, such as local Nashville favorites: Mrs. Grissom’s Salads, Winfrey Foods and Nothing Bundt Cakes Nashville. For sustainable consumers, Chef Director Bianca Morton from local nonprofit, The Nashville Food Project, will be sharing ways to reduce food waste and have a more sustainable kitchen.
