The East Nashville Farmers Market is thrilled to announce our featured chef for the week. Executive chef Todd Alan Martin of Treehouse will be joining us at the East Nashville Pie Festival and Bake-Off this Wednesday, July 1st, serving bite-sized samples of house-made peach curd pie for our festival attendees to sample. Treehouse is a top-tier sponsor of the East Nashville Farmers Market and an official sponsor of the East Nashville Pie Festival and Bake-Off for 2015. We are honored to have their participation and support.
Located in a residential home on East Nashville’s Clearview Avenue, Treehouse has become a culinary destination for patrons seeking a high-energy atmosphere with a fresh, unique menu. The home’s original backyard treehouse — the restaurant’s most popular feature — has been remodeled to accommodate parties of 6 or more, and can be reserved in advance for guests. This highly sought-after spot offers a unique view of Five Points and is accompanied by a menu that showcases our regions seasonality.
Since pioneering the restaurant’s opening in October 2013, chef Martin has consistently incorporated locally-sourced produce into his culinary creations: “I rarely turn local farmers or growers away,” he says. “When something arrives fresh, I find a way to use it. I ask, ‘Ok, can I put this is a salad, drink, entrée, or dessert? Can I juice it, pickle it, puree it, or all of the above?'” In addition to produce, Chef Martin incorporates locally-raised meats into many of the creative dishes that Treehouse has built its stellar reputation upon.
Catch chef Todd Alan Martin at this year’s East Nashville Pie Festival and Bake-Off. But be sure to arrive early, because whatever this chef is sampling is sure to go fast.
