NextUP challenges eight local chefs to showcase how an amazing home-cooked meal can be made, even with the simplest of ingredients. Join Foodbank Throwdown in its third year and support an organization giving back to the community for over 100 years. 

Judged by four, food-industry writers (to be announced soon!), Chefs will not only have to impress the NextUP audience, they also must dazzle expert judges, who are no stranger to enjoying (and writing about) good meals in Nashville. 

Your Ticket Includes:
+ Sample plates from eight chefs involved in the Throwdown; Chef Introductions on Tuesday, April 25!
+ Adult refreshments from our beer sponsor, Jackalope Brewing Company 
+ Recipes for all the dishes sampled during the competition

These supplies with the support of NextUP mentors allow students to focus on their path of higher education, not the seemingly immense financial obstacles they encounter along the way.
