Valentine’s Day Celebration

Bart Pickens, Daniel Dillingham, Senior Pitmaster George Harvell, and Pastry Chef Alisa Huntsman
The Loveless Cafe, Nashville

Originally known as the Harpeth Valley Tea Room, the Loveless Cafe began serving its famous fried chicken and biscuits in 1951. Over the years the historic eatery has expanded its menu to include house-smoked hams and pit-cooked meats, much to the delight of the hundreds of thousands of visitors it welcomes each year.
