The Cookery

As both a chef and former member of the homeless population, Brett Swayn knows the difference that learning a trade can make in a person's life—and he's dedicated to passing that experience on to others. A concept he started with fellow church-member Terry Kemper, he runs a combination restaurant and training school for the ex-homeless now trained in the culinary arts: The Cookery. A five-month culinary school and housing program empowers students and helps keep them off the streets, all while teaching the basics, from knife skills to several professional cooking techniques. The process prepares students to pursue careers in the Nashville culinary scene or join its crime-fighting force if a vegetable-themed supervillain ever attacks. And the giving back doesn't stop there—all proceeds go back into Lambscroft Ministries, an organization dedicated to serving the city's homeless.

And yet, for as much good as The Cookery does, the food is the main draw. House specialties include "Aussie-style" meat pies and sausage rolls, as well as lettuce wraps with julienne vegetables and five styles of meat, including coffee-rubbed pork and Moroccan-style orange chicken. These are crafted and plated alongside house-made burgers and six global-inspired styles of loaded baked potatoes. Espresso drinks and fruit-infused tea help to wash down every bite.
