Culinary Schools in Tennessee (TN)
Bordered on the west by the Mississippi River, Tennessee offers its citizens many cultural and natural attractions that span across the state. Western Tennessee offers music history in Grace Land and the beauty of gemstones on the Tennessee River Freshwater Pearl Farm. Middle Tennessee invites visitors to toast to two of America’s most famous whiskey distilleries. Eastern Tennessee offers a diverse urban sprawl alongside the Appalachian Trail.
Of interest to the aspiring culinary arts student is the traditional regional foods of the state such as barbecued pork that is cooked outdoors over a fire, fried chicken, catfish, fried green tomatoes and pecan pie. Should you decide to study the culinary arts in Tennessee, you will have the opportunity to enjoy these foods at the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Great Southern Food Festival, both in Memphis.
