Southeast Eats – Interesting Summer Food Fests

From green beans to meatballs, here's a sample of what's cooking

Each of these food fests celebrates a signature ingredient or flavor. Nashville’s Hot Chicken Festival showcases many versions of their signature dish from a variety of local restaurants and the amateur cooking competition. Citrus is the key ingredient at the Key Lime Festival in the Florida Keys with key lime rum, cocktails from martinis to margaritas, key lime pie eating contest and cooking demos. The Atlanta Meatball Festival offers dozens of tastings from seafood to chicken and a ‘battle of the balls’ competition with local restaurants. If you are on a quest to taste something unique, this list is for you.
