Food & Fun are Fare At Southern Women’s Show

The Southern Women’s Show is back and Nashville’s Music City Center hosts the four-day festival of food, fun, and fashion April 30 – May 3. Boasting celebrity chefs and special guests, this year’s event celebrates unique cuisine and all of the delicious reasons to love the South.

Sponsored by Kroger and Mix 92.9, the popular Taste of Home Cooking School returns this year. Join friends, family, and neighbors at the Mix 92.9 Cooking Stage on April 30th and May 1st! Attendees will learn seasonal recipes that are perfect for every holiday, occasion, and skill level and that can be made with readily available ingredients to create memorable meals at home. The Taste of Home Cooking School will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday and Friday. Included in a premium ticket package for the Southern Women’s Show Nashville and Taste of Home Cooking School is a fabulous swag bag of goodies! Seating is limited so purchasing advance tickets is recommended.

Taste of Home culinary specialist Dana Elliott began cooking at an early age and has fond memories of her mother’s homemade spaghetti and meatballs. She graduated from the Art Institute Fort Lauderdale with a degree in Culinary Management. She has instructed students on restaurant management and has been the recipient of the Outstanding Culinary Achievement Award. Audiences will find Dana and more celebrity chefs at the 2015 Southern Women’s Show.

In addition to the Taste of Home Cooking Schools, the stage will be feature recognized chefs and local personalities just waiting to make your mouth water. There will be hourly programs throughout the four days, so plan to bring your appetite.

Do you know how to carve a steak so it melts in your mouth? Are you a master of the meat thermometer so you don’t have to worry about over-cooking your beautiful beef? Do you know how to wrap your beef perfectly for the freezer so you can stock up and save money by taking advantage of sale prices? Cattlewomen from across the country will be on-hand to share their beef expertise and to answer  questions about all things beef! Jennie Jodgen, meat scientist, will be at the Southern Women’s Show with the Beef Checkoff to share her insight, answer questions and share tasty recipes.

Thursday is Peanut Lover’s Day and the Southern Peanut Growers offers daily cooking schools. The Southern Peanut Growers educate American consumers about the U.S. peanut industry and its products, one PB&J at a time.

Each day of the Southern Women’s Show offers more to see, do, shop, and learn this year. Each day will offer surprises, including Girls Night Out (Friday) and Mother Daughter Day (Sunday). Celebrity guests include Peter Facinelli of the Twilight Sagas and NBC’s new series American Odyssey; and Randy Fenoli, bridal industry expert, author and star of TLCs Say Yes to the Dress, Big Bliss, Randy Knows Best, and Randy to the Rescue.

There will be lots of new exhibitors with plenty of discounts, specials, and giveaways. Favorites will be back, too, including the Local 140 Firefighter Fashion Show which has raised thousands of dollars for Camp Phoenix, Box 55, and Fighters that Care (FTC).

The 29th annual Southern Women’s Show is all about great shopping, creative cooking ideas, healthy lifestyle tips, trendy fashion shows, and great celebrity guests. Plus, learn about travel destinations, home décor and improvement ideas, and business opportunities
