Kitchen Culinary Tour at Belle Meade Plantation

9:00am - 12:30pm
$154

To set the stage for this southern culinary adventure, we will tour one of the South's great mansions, Belle Meade Plantation. The tour begins in the fully restored Greek revival mansion, completed in 1853, whose grounds include a large carriage house, stable, log cabin, and several other original buildings. We then spend time in the original Plantation kitchen where the southern cooks will let you participate in cooking and tasting southern classics like biscuits with plantation smoked country ham, pecan pie, or home-raised honey and preserves. The tour also explores the kitchen's root cellar, herb garden, and the largest antebellum smokehouse in the South where over 20,000 pounds of pork a year were smoked. Your final stop will be the winery, where you will sample the private wines exclusively sold at Belle Meade, a tradition started on the plantation in 1820.

From there, the group heads over to the Country Music Hall of Fame, the world's largest research center dedicated to a single form of American music. The museum recently unveiled a $100 million expansion doubling its size to 350,000 square feet of dynamic state-of-the-art galleries, archival storage, education classrooms, retail stores, and special event spaces. Here guests can get an in-depth look at the people, places and instruments that have contributed to the development of country music.

After exploring some of Nashville's well-known neighborhoods, guests will end at Nelson's Greenbrier Distillery for a tour of this historical distillery and taste of some of Nashville's favorite southern whiskey.
