Foodies will have plenty of delectable delights to pair with fine wines and spirits during Saturday’s much-awaited annual epicurean event. Sweet and savory bites will overrun Main Street at Wine Down Main.

Triple Crown Bakery of Franklin will serve “cake shots,” consisting of cake and icing prepared in shot glasses, featuring flavors such as caramel spice, double chocolate, and pumpkin cream cheese.

Puckett’s Boathouse of Franklin will serve elegant ceviche samples, prepared with shrimp, onion, cucumber, red and green peppers as well as crab bites tucked in Phyllo dough, according to Chef Donald Counts.

One of Franklin’s down home meat and three eateries Cool Café will serve its famous homemade banana pudding in an oversized chilled bowl fit to serve an army. On the savory side, the restaurant will offer its crunchy house-made potato chips. 

Named for the tasty-sounding cloud formation, Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, will offer made-from-scratch selections such pumpkin and pecan pie samples, as well as other flavors.

Pieology of Franklin, a new pizza shop located on Main Street, will step right over its threshold to serve assorted samples of its signature pizzas ranging from BBQ chicken to Rustic Veggie to Classic Margherita.
