About once or twice a year, we make a big paella for friends. The occasion for this one was for our friends Daniel and Rebecca who run the Tootsie Truck in Knoxville. They had returned from a seafood run to Florida and wanted to know if we wanted to share in the haul…the answer is always […]
In this new series we are writing to discuss the latest Knoxfoodie adventure: a CSA subscription. We have been talking about participating in community supported agriculture for a few years and we finally decided to see what all of the fuss is about. We did some research, communicated with a few folks and decided to […]
Zack Roskop, owner and operator of Knox Brew Tours, came to us with an idea. The idea was a collaboration to bring the way we experience Knoxville to the masses. He would provide the transportation and we would embark on an adventure to provide an evening that most people wouldn’t have otherwise. After dreaming, scheming, […]
Of the restaurants opening this year in Knoxville, Emilia has been one of the most anticipated. Those who have visited Knox Mason know the reason why.

For our regular KnoxFoodie Date night, our buddy Zack at Knox Brew Tours took us to Pretentious Beer Glass Company in The Old City this week. Owner Matthew Cummings saw a need in the booming beer industry for well-designed glasses. These aren’t the glasses you will find at the average watering hole. These are fine pieces […]
The occasion to visit Roanoke for the first time was to attend Elton John’s concert at the Berglund Center. Luckily, Roanoke has an amazing foodie couple known as Mr and Mrs Hungry Asian who we came to know through our social media network a couple years ago. So our food exploration we left up to our […]

Sourcing his meat, vegetables, and ingredients from the regions finest farmers, […]
You all know we have some go-to spots that we find ourselves at multiple times a month and they are just so familiar, we forget to post about them. The Plaid Apron is one of those places. When people ask us for recommendations, they are always on the list. Drew and Bonni McDonald are heading […]

Olibea in the Old City in downtown Knoxville comes up in our posts frequently so we thought we’d share a delicious breakfast/brunch we had with our friends as they await the arrival of their baby. Chef DeAlejandro always has something new to try, but there’s now a bad choice on the whole menu! Perfect if you have visitors in town and want them to have an outstanding breakfast experience!
A recent look at Chef Katie Button’s stellar Curate Tapas Bar in downtown Asheville, NC. Providing an authentic Spanish experience in the heart of Appalachia.

Don’t let risotto scare you! It’s actually very easy and this version echos the upcoming Fall flavors. Use any kind of mushroom you have access to. We happened upon a pound of delicious oyster mushrooms at the farmer’s market. This dish works as a main course, or a rich side perfect with pork, chicken or beef.
