***Update: We've had a great response, and the dinner is sold out. Look for more fun cheesy activities in the coming months!***


Hold on to your cheese curds, friends, we've got some fun stuff in the works!

I'm so excited to announce that Tayst Restaurant and The Bloomy Rind are teaming up with three fabulous cheesemakers to bring you the first ever Tennessee Cheese Dinner.

Chef Jeremy Barlow will serve up five fabulous courses - each one featuring a different farmstead cheese from our highlighted Tennessee cheesemakers: Sequatchie Cove Creamery, Noble Springs Dairy, and Locust Grove Farm.

And, as if the evening couldn't get any better, we'll actually be dining with the cheesemakers! That's right, the good folks from each of these farms will be breaking bread with us for this very special evening celebrating Tennessee cheese.



Thursday, June 23rd

5 courses plus wine pairings, $59
