Creative Discovery Museum’s Best Bites 2014: Brownies Is June 7

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Creative Discovery Museum will host Best Bites 2014: Brownies on Saturday, June 7, from 1-3 p.m.

Over the last three years Creative Discovery Museum has sought the best foods iconic for Southern culinary tradition to highlight during their annual food tasting, Best Bites. This year the Museum has its sights set on identifying Chattanooga’s best brownies.  

Four local restaurants have been nominated for the ideal brownie. The top four restaurants will participate in a taste challenge on June 7, where Museum guests will taste and judge the best brownie in the city.  

"Every year for Best Bites we try to think of a unique food symbolic to the South,” said Liza Blair, arts manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “Even though brownies are not unique to the south, we feel that this year's tasting is still a great food worth celebrating and one that we believe most children, and many of their parents, will be interested in learning more about and tasting for themselves.”

Best Bites is included with paid admission to the Museum. With the wide range of known food allergies, the Museum cannot guarantee that this program is allergen free. Please contact the Museum in advance if food allergies are a concern for your family.

Best Bites is part of ArtsLive!, a year-round program connecting children with visual and performing artists. ArtsLive! is funded through Arts Build of Greater Chattanooga and Tennessee Arts Commission.

Where Is The Speed Control On Our Highways? - And Response (3)

I am teaching my 15-year-old to drive in the North Georgia and Chattanooga area. I have warned her of the dangers of exceeding the speed limit both as a hazard to herself and in terms of receiving a ticket. What a liar I am.  Have you driven on the local freeways and highways recently? I never see any highway patrolmen helping to reduce speeding or pulling over those who ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Testerman Forum

I badly misjudged how long it would take me to do my “early voting.” I was in-and-out in no time so I got to the Hamilton County School Board’s agenda meeting well enough beforehand to have an “educational forum” with board member David Testerman. If you haven’t noticed, forums and summits and “community enlightenment” groups are the new rage and, as my friend David laughed, “They ... (click for more)
