Announcing the Goo Goo Summer Chef Series

We are excited to announce our Goo Goo Summer Chef Series happening July 1 through the end of September at downtown Nashville’s Goo Goo Shop!

Goo Goo Shop

Nashville, TN 37201

The series will feature Premium Goo Goo creations imagined by eight of Nashville’s best chefs as seen above. Each chef is collaborating with Lauren Garcia, the Goo Goo Shop’s Confectionery Kitchen Manager, to create his or her own Premium Goo Goo flavor that will be sold at the Goo Goo Shop in the months leading up to the Music City Food + Wine Festival in September. Flavors will rotate periodically, with two to three chefs being featured each month. New flavors will be announced on our social media channels and here on our website as they are launched.

To wrap up the series, the Goo Goo Shop will showcase all of the chefs’ flavors at our Grand Taste tent table during the Music City Food + Wine Festival on September 19th and 20th, 2015.
