  • Chef Garvin At Lockeland Table
Road Trip with G. Garvin — now in its second season on the Cooking Channel — makes a stop in Nashville in the episode airing tonight at 8 p.m. The show crisscrosses the country, seeking out Southern specialties in each destination, most of which are, of course, in the South. While in Nashville, Atlanta native and Southern food connoisseur Chef Garvin visits three different restaurants that show three unique aspects of Nashville’s food culture.

The first stop is the hip Lockeland Table in hip East Nashville, where dinner with Chef Hal Holden-Bache includes pork loin with greens and mac-and-cheese. Interestingly, this is what food blogger Beth Sachan ate during her first visit to the restaurant last year, so you can get a glimpse of it and read her assessment on her blog.

No visit to Nashville is complete without hot chicken. Chef Garvin visits downtown’s 400 Degrees and gets a private lesson on how to make hot chicken from owner, native Nashvillian and all-around hot chicken expert Aqui Simpson.

The last stop in Nashville kicks it old school with a visit to John A’s out in Donelson. The eponymous John A is John A. Hobbs, formerly of the Nashville Palace. Along with the fried chicken livers and prime rib sandwich, Chef Garvin gets treated to some live Nashville-style entertainment.

The episode airs tonight at 8 p.m. on the Cooking Channel and will repeat Wednesday and Saturday. Check the website for specific times. Also, look out for a future episode (set to premiere June 25) that will feature Franklin's Noble Springs Dairy and a lesson making goat cheese.
