Located in Rutledge Hill – just a few blocks south of Historic Broadway, in the heart of Downtown Nashville – Husk transforms the essence of Southern food. Executive Chef Ben Norton reinterprets the bounty of Tennessee and the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and eat in the South.
It was over 40 years ago when Col. Tom Givan and Dr. Sam Woods realized the need for good, old-fashioned cured country hams in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The two were reminiscing about coming home, getting into Mama Vic's cabinet, and eating cold biscuits stuffed with Old Doc's country ham. Col. Givan and Dr. Woods longed for someone in Murfreesboro to cure hams the way they did in the old days.
