INTERNATIONAL BISCUIT FESTIVAL KICKS OFF SUMMER IN KNOXVILLE
May 23 2011 KNOXVILLE, TENN.
The second annual International Biscuit Festival celebrates the heritage of home cooking in Knoxville May 27 and 28. The event will combine fun, entertainment and of course, food during the event.
Events begin with the Biscuit Benefit Dinner, featuring Miami-based guest chef Michelle Bernstein and hosted by Blackberry Farm. The Biscuit Benefit Dinner is a new event this year, and proceeds from the dinner will benefit Share Our Strength, a national charity working to eliminate child hunger, as well as local partner Second Harvest.
Festivities continue with the Biscuit Breakfast, presented by Hardee's, where biscuit lovers can select from a large biscuit buffet provided by Hardee's and top caterers from around the region. The Biscuit Bazaar vendor area opens early to showcase biscuit-friendly wares, including jams, jellies, honey, sorghum, aprons, kitchenware, artwork and cookbooks.
Guests with an appetite can stroll down Biscuit Boulevard, a tasting area with more than 20 different restaurants and biscuit bakers sharing their signature biscuits. Guests can purchase $5 tickets that allow them to sample up to five different biscuit creations. Biscuits can also be purchased directly from participating vendors. The main event is the Biscuit Bake Off, which includes contestants selected from a nationwide application process who will compete on the Southern Biscuit Flour Stage.
