The Meal That Heals

2019 CHEFS Blog

We are sure that you have noticed, Nashville is changing.  From the influx of bachelorettes and Airbnbs, to the great restaurant expansion in the last decade, many folks are both excited and bewildered with the transformation of our wonderful city.  We want the The Meal that Heals to showcase how Nashville chefs are embracing that change by creating a partnership with each course.  Two chefs, one a stalwart in the Nashville scene, the other a relative newcomer to the town or to the business, work together in a nod to Old School/ New School Nashville in support of a great cause.

Rahaf has cooked in many notable kitchens around Nashville. She got her start as a Sous Chef at PUBlicity in Bellevue in 2015. She since then became Executive Chef at the recently shuttered Salt & Vine, where she really started putting her mark in Nashville. Now she is flying solo, doing private events and consulting. Rahaf has also done several events in Nashville, including “Food From Inside the Travel Ban” to raise money for legal defense funds for immigrants and will soon compete in Nashville Scenes Iron Fork competition this coming March.
