Carter Hach:
Carter Hach is the executive chef at Hachland Hill, a dining inn and 80 acre retreat center that dates back generations in his family. He grew up cooking with his grandmother, the legendary Chef Phila Hach, and wrote his first recipe for chocolate nut drop cookies before he could actually spell the word, “recipe”. Carter attended the University of Mississippi and traveled around the world by ship, fueling his passions for writing and fusion cooking. All of Hach’s food is made from scratch and he uses only the best local ingredients from nearby farms located within 30 miles of Hachland Hill, which many say is Nashville’s best kept secret.
