Chef's by Nature

Building off of the ever-evolving culinary scene of Nashville, 1 Kitchen introduces a new series designed to celebrate our local farmers, ranchers and growers and the natural abundance of Tennessee — hosted by the world’s most celebrated chefs, who’ll each visit us from across the nation. Our Chefs by Nature will collaborate with our Culinary Director Chris Crary to get inspired by local ingredients and traditional techniques, create featured dishes on our 1 Kitchen menu, teach master cooking classes for guests, host charity dinners in support of the Nashville community, and more. 

See our lineup below and keep up to date here for new announcements in the coming months. Individual event dates and tickets coming soon.

Chef Chris Crary

Culinary Director Chris Crary

Born and raised in the small town of Bucyrus, Ohio, 1 Hotel Nashville’s Culinary Director and Bravo's Top Chef Alum, Chris Crary, became passionate about food at a young age, following time spent with his Tennessean grandmother who had an affinity for Southern comfort food and cooking. In his role as Culinary Director at 1 Hotel Nashville, Crary utilizes that passion while he oversees all of the property’s food & beverage concepts—1 Kitchen, Harriet’s Rooftop Bar, Neighbors Café, and the hotel’s event space, Crossvine. He focuses on creating menus that are collaborative and creative, reflecting a sustainably-driven cuisine that holds ingredients to the highest standard to create simple, healthy dishes that celebrate Nashville’s flavor and heritage.
