Whether you're planning a corporate event, a birthday celebration, or your wedding day, if you're looking for a caterer, it's very likely you have a specific vision of what you want. Most people don't realize caterers wear a variety of hats; they aren't just chefs. Many times they are plumbers, electricians, psychologists, babysitters, dog walkers, counselors, florists, hairstylists, and the list goes on. From the food quality/quantity to the superior service, It's important to choose a caterer that doesn't leave any details behind.Read More

What better way to celebrate summer's bounty than by teaming up with fellow Nashville chef's and serving up a tasty menu. Fun was had by all at last week's 2015 Summer Harvest dinner at Riverwood Mansion on the east side. Fresh ingredients came from our garden at Riverwood shared with Chef Trey Cioccia of The Farmhouse.
The best part is that a portion of the proceeds benefited nonprofit organizations in need ( OnTarget4Vets & The American Liver Foundation ) allowing us to give back to those in need.
Here's a peak inside the tasty menu served:
1st Course - Chef Todd Martin, The Treehouse
Marinated heirloom tomatoes, farm greens, benne, fresh goat cheese, herbs
2nd Course - Chef Hal Holden-bach, Lockeland Table
Grilled GA, Quail, white squirrel farms greens & beets, bentons, hoisin bbq
3rd Course - Chef Trey Cioccia, The Farm House
SOUTH CAROLINA AMBERJACK WITH HOPPIN JOHNS, PICKLE
4th Course - Chef Debbie Sutton, Riverwood Mansion
STRAWBERRY RHUBARB, NUTELLA CRUMB CRUST, SWEET MAIZE ICE CREAM

Our very own Chef Debbie Sutton recently took over the ownership and management team leader of Riverwood Mansion. With these changes, Chef Sutton has introduced Riverwood to more community events and partnerships, specifically involving the local culinary scene. With the first ever Local Fest @ the Mansion and Pop Up Dinner back in November to a recent Chef's forum bringing together local chef's at the mansion we are excited to announce a new endeavor......
Chef Debbie Sutton has partnered up with Chef Trey Cioccia of The Farm House on a "farm to fork" concept to bring the freshest ingredients to their guests. Riverwood will be home to a new garden where fresh produce will be grown, harvested and then served at Cioccia's restaurant and incorporated into 8 Lavender Lane's catering menu. We're excited to participate in this important initiative bringing the community fresher food.
We have officially broke ground where the garden will be planted and the plans to build a greenhouse alongside are also in effect. A new railroad tie compost will be installed to compliment the outdoor garden and greenhouse.
Stay tuned for more updates and photo's as the garden progresses!
