Welcome to Edible Nashville, a food magazine…about people. We’re dedicated to telling the stories behind Music City’s vibrant local food movement. Food is a big part of our culture, our economy and who we are as Southerners. Each issue will spotlight the farmers, artisans, chefs, restaurants, home cooks and gardeners that have made Nashville as hot as our chicken. Published six times a year with gorgeous photography, insightful writing, and yummy recipes, Edible Nashville is a free magazine distributed throughout the city. Of course it’s also available by subscription, and through other select venues including hotels, events, supermarkets, and farm markets.
Hi! I’m Jill Melton, editor and founder of Edible Nashville. We want our magazine to be your go-to food resource. We believe that knowing where your food comes from is just as powerful as knowing how to cook it. In Edible Nashville, you’ll learn both. I’ve called Nashville "home" for nine years, and the south for 25. I spent 15 years with Cooking Light magazine, bringing it from infancy to a household name, and most recently, Relish magazine, which I launched and grew to one of the largest food magazines in the country -- read by over 16 million folks. I love to cook and have done so professionally for 10 years. I’m also a registered dietitian.
