Countdown to the Music City Food + Wine – Interview with Executive Chef Kyle Patterson

Kyle Patterson is Executive Chef of Sinema Restaurant & Bar. Last year at the 2017 Music City Food + WIne he prepared our favorite dish of the festival with Ricotta Agnolotti: Sun Dried Tomato Beurre Monte, Chive, Parmesan, Fried Capers, Roasted King Trumpet Mushrooms. So of course we had to get the scoop on how he is planning to top it this year!

Why did you want to get involved with the Music City Food + Wine Festival?
It’s the largest industry event of the year with a lot of notoriety, so it’s certainly an honor to be involved. It’s also a cool opportunity to interact with guests face to face when normally there’s a separation when I’m in the kitchen.

What’s your favorite part about the Music City Food + Wine Festival? Is there any one event you look forward to more than others?
I’m really excited for the live fire cooking that they do. All of the awesome chefs coming together to throw down and grill meat is something to behold.

You had our favorite dish of 2017 from the Grand Taste. Can you talk a little about how you are going to top it this year?
Haha well you’re going to just have to show up and find out.

Do you like meeting foodies at festivals?
Absolutely, the best part of cooking is getting to experience the people who get to enjoy the food and talk to them about it. I have a show kitchen at Sinema so I get some of that in my day-to-day but being face to face with everyone as they eat my food and ask questions about it is a lot of fun.

Is it good to talk to chefs at the festival and swap ideas, or are you a secretive bunch?
Yes. Most of us are friends and we love to shoot the spit with each other, but we’re not going to give away all of our secrets to each other either.

What sets Nashville apart from all other cities, food-wise?
Nashville just has everything, from fine dining to BBQ and everything in between. No matter what your craving, somebody is doing it well somewhere in the city.

Any new Nashville restaurants or chefs on your radar that you’re looking forward to checking out?
I’m still playing catch-up with all the new ones that have come over the last year!

Finally what’s one tip you can give festival goers?
Bring a tray! Every year I see three of four people with a plastic lunch tray type deal and its brilliant, everyone always says “I should of done that,” but by the time it rolls around next year they forget. So bring your tray!
