• Spot Your Way to the Luxurious Blackberry Farm

    It's about that time again when Foodspotting teams up with one of our awesome partners to give away a trip to an equally awesome destination. This time, we're working with Blackberry Farm in Tennessee and Travel + Leisure to give you the chance to win a weekend stay at the incredible Blackberry Farm. Travel + Leisure just revealed that readers rated this resort No. 1 for Service in the U.S and Canada, and Top Chef judge Gail Simmons recently deemed Blackberry Farm one of her most favourite hotels.

    Beyond the excellent service and breath-taking location, what's captivating about Blackberry Farm is its attention to good food. It features a rotation of cooking school events featuring world-class chefs and Master Gardeners that oversee the Garden, cultivating collections of heirloom seeds. The prize will include two nights' accommodation at Blackberry Farm resort in Tennessee, all meals while there and travel to the resort.

    All you have to do is go out there and spot as many Southern styled foods as you can from now through June 30, 2012. Here's a hint: below are the dishes that will make you eligible - you also have to be over 18 and a legal resident of the U.S. Never heard of some of these dishes?

      Sorry, but BlackBerry Farm have made a practice of ripping off their local suppliers. Shady people don't deserve my support.

      I guess it doesn't count if I spot them out of my grandmother's kitchen does it? Haha. I'm in the North, but my grandmother makes most that stuff every Sunday. I even have a jar of Chow-Chow in the kitchen right now.
