Butter My Biscuits

It's a great time to be in Knoxville, Tennessee! This morning I'm visiting my Fox43 friends for a segment all about that most southern of delicacies, the biscuit.

Today kicks of the 2nd Southern Food Writing Conference, which I'm attending. It's going to be two jam-packed days of learning and eating, with some amazing foodies, southern food enthusiasts, cookbook authors, writers and bloggers

I'm looking forward to meeting the fabulous Julia Reed as well as Chef Hugh Acheson. Don't you just love folks who love food? 

One of the most highly anticipated events of Southern Food Writing Conference is a dinner at Blackberry Farm. It's like the southern foodie's holy grail (I hope it can live up to the hype). 

Then Saturday, May 18 is the 4th Annual International Biscuit Festival! Thousands of folks will descend onto downtown Knoxville to eat their hearts out on all sorts of delicious biscuit creations. 

I hope to see some of your smiling faces!
