IRON FORK 2022 - SOLD OUT
Thursday, April 28 | 6:00-9:30pm
First Horizon Park
The Nashville Scene’s 13th Annual Iron Fork, presented by US Foods returns with four local top chefs from Music City's best restaurants going head-to-head in a cooking competition to vie for the coveted Iron Fork Champions trophy and entry to the 2022 World Food Championships. The competition's catch? One secret ingredient. Modeled after the popular Food Network television show Iron Chef, chefs will have one hour to prepare a dish that includes a secret ingredient for a panel of celebrity and guest judges.
Attendees of the event will enjoy unlimited food samples from some of Nashville’s best restaurants, and a drink passport to try specialty cocktails, beer and wine while watching the fierce competition take place. Guests can get it on the action by joining our amateur hour guest competition or by bidding on a charity auction for one of the plates prepared by the talented chefs.

Our panel of judges will crown the best Mixologist in town — and they'll receive a special trophy, major bragging rights, a social media feature from the Nashville Scene's Instagram account and more!
