Alice Randall is well-known as a fiction author and professor at Vanderbilt, but she is quite a foodie as well. She personally demostrated her bona fides to me when she prepared the welcoming shot of potlikker at a Southern Foodways Alliance event at City House a few years back, and she is chef Jamie Oliver's Nashville ambassador for his Food Revolution movement.
So Randall is a logical choice for The Guardian to seek out for advice on live music, food and lodging in Nashville. Her picks included lunch at Burger Up or a trip to Prince's for hot chicken, dinner at hot spots Rolf and Daughters, City House or Margot, and Pub5 for a nightcap after an evening of honky-tonking.
With all this Anglo attention, I took a quick peek at round trip air fares from Heathrow to Nashville. The cheapest flight I found was $800-plus, so while Randall made some excellent choices, maybe somebody should let the Brits know about The Recession Special at Robert's.
