Award-Winning Chef/Author Rolls Through Nashville, TN for Book Signing, Cooking Demonstration & Taco Sales to Benefit Seed Life Skills
Join award-winning chef/author Hugh Acheson on his cross-country tour through 25 American cities to debut his new cookbook, The Chef & The Slow Cooker. Hugh and team will hustle & bustle through each town in a big & bright, silver Airstream Travel Trailer as part of the #EndlessCaravan, proving that the faithful slow cooker is far from a fusty old pot roast machine.
Acheson’s shared passion for food, community and philanthropy matched with an eager wanderlust to explore the open road and meet people from across the country made him a perfect fit for Airstream’s innovative ‘real-people’ campaign.
At each stop, Acheson will host an interactive taco-making demonstration using All-Clad slow cookers and ingredients provided by Whole Foods Market® and Cholula Hot Sauce.
Tacos from the demonstration will be sold to benefit Seed Life Skills, a non-profit that Acheson started to help get kids cooking and connect science to real life problems. Attendees can pick Hugh’s brain about all slow cooker questions, purchase books and also get them personalized. Hugh will be available for interviews in advance and on-site. Additionally, at each stop attendees will have the opportunity to enter to win an All-Clad Slow Cooker, signed cookbook and Cholula Hot Sauce. A winner will be chosen from a random drawing and the prizes will be shipped to them.
WHEN: Sunday, November 19, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Chef Acheson will cook Beer Braised Pork Tacos, a delicious dish from The Chef & The Slow Cooker in a live demonstration at each tour stop. All ingredients are provided by Whole Foods Market, hot sauce by Cholula and slow cooker equipment by All-Clad. Tacos will be available for purchase with each sale benefitting Seed Life Skills.

About The Chef & The Slow Cooker
In The Chef and the Slow Cooker, Hugh brings a chef’s mind to the slow cooker, with 100 recipes showing readers how an appliance generally relegated to convenience cooking can open up many culinary doors. He shows how your trusty slow cooker can still surprise you—you can use it to poach fish, to steam-roast a chicken or leg of lamb, to make intense stocks and broths, and of course to braise the most tender short ribs. It’s an approachable, fun, comforting collection of recipes, spiked with global influences and elevated by smart cooking. Using flavor profiles, combinations, and techniques never before seen in a slow cooker cookbook, The Chef and the Slow Cooker proves that even though slow cookers are an old-school technology, they will guide you to better meals in this contemporary world. All while giving you the ability to walk away and live your life while dinner is cooking.
