“Locals and visitors eat their way through this unpretentious mountain town while exploring rich culinary inspirations ranging from Appalachian flavors to dishes brought from around the globe. Take a trip through historic buildings turned into modern restaurants, including one of Knoxville’s first taverns, while learning about multigenerational restaurant families and pioneers who struck out on their own.”

Paula Johnson has led over 1,000 tours through her business, Knoxville Food Tours.
