NUNNELLY, TN – Dec. 12, 2019 – Mee McCormick, the holistic chef and founder of Pinewood Kitchen & Mercantile in Nunnelly, has brought on several partners from the Nashville community to help grow the culinary destination she’s created as an organic food oasis in Middle Tennessee.
New partners include: Dierks and Cassidy Bentley, Ryan and Betsy Chapman, Lisa and Jamie Cheek and Adam and Julie Dretler.
Each of the new partners were inspired by the Pinewood community that McCormick has built, which includes an organic farm, grass-fed and finished cattle ranch, restaurant and general store located 45 minutes outside of Nashville. With their involvement, the partners will join McCormick in her effort to further establish Pinewood as a charming, nourishing and community-driven culinary destination.
More than farm-to-table, Pinewood Kitchen is a table on the farm that serves up Southern comfort food made from ingredients free of GMOs, pesticides and other harmful additives and preservatives. The majority of the food served in the restaurant has been grown and raised on the land with wellness in mind; each dish is prepared to order to accommodate all guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions, as well as vegan, paleo and keto lifestyles.
Alongside the restaurant, Pinewood Mercantile showcases a carefully selected collection of clothing, jewelry, kitchenware, home goods and groceries such as McCormick’s homemade soups, jams, sauces, beef, pork and Pinewood farm honey. From the restaurant, farm tours and cooking classes to the sense of community at every corner, Pinewood has something for anyone and a place at the table for everyone.
As an author, TV personality, chef and entrepreneur, McCormick has built her career as a culinary innovator in the South on the platform that comfort food can be both delicious and healthy. Her platform is also personal, as McCormick’s own health and wellness journey of overcoming a debilitating digestive disease through food allergy training and clean eating is the inspiration behind Pinewood: Bringing people together around the table through food inclusivity, education and community.
