T

here's everyday cooking, and
then there's Blackberry Farm
cooking: carefully sourced,
back-to-basics soulful, and
deliciously nourishing.
A 4,200-acre working farm
abutting the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park in
eastern Tennessee, Blackberry
comprises 68 rooms in lodges and
forest-set homes. The latter come with
their own golf carts for getting to the
swimming pool, lake, and, of course,
The Barn - the destination restaurant
and epicurean center where guests
can shadow a chef for a day, catch a
cooking demonstration, or participate

in a private winetasting from the
160,000-bottle cellar.
"I think of Blackberry Farm as a Southern-hospitality-channeling B&B that has
the absolute best version of everything
you could imagine on a homestead,"
says Paul Tumpowsky, a New York Citybased Virtuoso agency executive.
The resort's farmstead educator,
Jeff Ross, provides insights into seedto-table cooking via garden tours and
kitchen classes that teach knife skills
and meal preparation. Guest chefs include the cream of the culinary world,
from René Redzepi to Grant Achatz.
"Blackberry Farm specializes in
high-quality introductions into things

foot, where few travelers venture.
