Southern Food


Bailey and Cato, Capitol Grille, City House, Corsair, Martins BBQ, Mt Valley, and Yazoo with the help of Ketch, Morgan and friends, put on a great event called the Potlikker Film Festival at City House in the Germantown area of Nashville on Sunday April 25, 2010.

City House pork meatballs

The Potlikker Film Festival will be held in Greenville, SC next year at about this same time of year. Potlikker Film Fest travels throughout the South from place to place, so it may not come back to Nashville for another decade. I was so lucky to be one of the 250 people to have a ticket for this event.

Martin's BBQ smoked wings

The film fest portion had 4 short films about Southern food. Tandy served up a lot of spicy popcorn for the film viewers. I love this spiced popcorn. The perfect snack for a movie.

Capitol Grille salmon with fennel and greens

There was plenty to drink, Corsair whiskey drinks, gin drink, vodka drink; there was plenty of Yazoo beer flowing from the Yazoo beer truck; there was plenty of Mt Valley water to drink.

peanut butter, choco, marshmallow cookies

The food and drink were all local sources. Corsair just moved into Marathon Village with their pre-prohibition copper still to make whiskey the old fashioned way. Potlikker was provided by Bailey and Cato, and I got my shot of potlikker to toast the evening.

Corsair gin (and whiskey was on hand)

The people there, I am excited to say, I saw Cat and Cribb there. They are getting ready to open a local organic market right down the street from me. I liked to talk about food with them. I saw Tom and Debbie, the source and maker of my fresh pasta. I saw Norm, one of the nicest guys in Nashville.

Yazoo beer

Ketch and Morgan played their instruments and sang with a bunch of other friends who played their instruments and sang American Southern songs. I really like Old Crow Medicine Show, and I rarely miss a show if I am in town. I was happy to hear them at the Potlikker Film Fest.

Ketch, Morgan and friend Shelley (who is the nicest woman in Green Hills)

The rain held out to just the perfect time. The Potlikker Film Fest was from 4 to 7 pm, and it started to drizzle at about 7:30 pm. The drizzle helped escorts the stragglers to the door.

City House spiced popcorn for film viewing

What a fun Sunday evening thing to do. We all said we want Tandy to have Sunday Supper be just like this every Sunday, and have the evening go on all night.

The Southern Foodways Alliance is wonderful! How did you score tickets?
I love the photos and it sounds like you really have integrated with the food community there - wish I had hooked up with you more while I lived in Nashville. Oh well...regrets aren't good.
Glad to see you're having lots of food fun!
