On Saturday, June 6, Local Table magazine will be hosting its first farm-to-table event on the 300-acre farm of Short Mountain Distillery, in celebration of the opening of the Stillhouse Restaurant. Situated in the beautiful rolling hills of Cannon County, the new restaurant boasts sweeping views from the wraparound porch, the best of local ingredients, handcrafted Tennessee spirits and Southern hospitality.
“Here at Stillhouse Restaurant we take our food and service seriously,” says Stillhouse owner and operator Todd Hollandsworth. “Every sauce and entrée is made from scratch. We buy as organic and local as we can for the freshest Southern dishes. Our goal is to serve our guests promptly, with respect, and provide a one-of-a-kind dining experience.”
Kicking off at 2 p.m., the day will feature live music, farm and distillery tours. A cash bar all-Tennessee cocktail hour precedes the 6:30 p.m. three-course, farm-to-table meal. The special menu will feature the freshest in-season produce from local area farms, with meats directly from Short Mountain. Stillhouse Restaurant’s Executive Chef, Paulino Solorzano, is a DeKalb County native, formerly a chef at Nashville’s Mad Platter restaurant and a proponent of using the best and freshest of seasonal, local ingredients.
“I’m so excited we’re doing our first farm-to-table event with the folks at Short Mountain and the Stillhouse Restaurant,” Lisa Shively, editor of Local Table, said. “Their practices and aesthetics are perfectly aligned with everything Local Table is passionate about—building community and using local producers.”
The neighboring Short Mountain Distillery produces award-winning small-batch moonshine and other fine spirits. Using time-honored techniques and generations of experience, Short Mountain’s spirits are distilled right on the property using fresh spring water and local, sustainably grown ingredients.
