Nuit Belge means Belgian Night in French, and oh what a night it was. Belgian beer, cheese and food pairings, all with a creative flair that could only happen in Nashville.
It was equal parts foodie and beer aficionado heaven. The best kitchens in Nashville were assigned a specific beer as inspiration, prepared a food pairing especially for that beer’s flavors, resulting in nothing short of art. The restaurants went all-out, with creative flavor combinations ranging from peanut butter and ham biscuits to the traditional Belgian dish of moules frites.
I’ll never forget the first time I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As a kid, it’s what dreams were made of: rivers flowing of chocolate, bubble gum that tastes like anything you wish, elevators able to fly anywhere and all the candy you can eat. I wonder if this story ever crossed Scott Witherow’s mind when he decided to dedicate his career to chocolate making with his brand, Olive & Sinclair.
