2015 National Maple Syrup Festival

Festival guests can expect to find a wide variety of maple dishes, ranging from sweet to savory and everything in between. Not only will restaurants feature dishes that bring a unique maple twist to classic favorites, there will also be truly one-of-a-kind maple creations on the menu too.

Just outside of town, guests at this year’s fifth-anniversary Festival can satisfy their sweet tooth with some maple walnut chocolate chip cookies at the 19th Hole Sports Bar at Salt Creek Golf Retreat or some mouthwatering apple maple bacon fritters at the Brown County Inn.

As the National Maple Syrup Festival approaches, more recipes and restaurants will join in this “Maple on the Menu” feature of the Festival. A complete list of participating restaurants can be found at http://nationalmaplesyrupfestival.com/maple-on-the-menu-in-nashville-restaurants/.

Maple also will be on the menu during several other National Maple Syrup Festival activities. On March 7 and 8, the Dutch Oven Diva will prepare maple dishes live in front of spectators over a campfire in the Brown County State Park. Gourmet hot chocolate and maple marshmallows from Brooke’s Candy Co. and 240Sweet also will be available.

Several other activities and events will be occurring throughout the county and within the Village of Nashville as part of the National Maple Syrup Festival, including live sugaring demonstrations, historical reenactments, interpretive hikes, the sale of maple-related goods and foods, family fun, and much more.

BEST OF THE FEST: “Dukale’s Dream” Film Screening

Actor Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness traveled to Ethiopia in their role as ambassadors for World Vision Australia in 2009. During that visit, they met Dukale, a coffee farmer. Growing up, poverty had deprived Dukale of an education, but he saw an opportunity to create a new future for his family when World Vision offered access to a new kind of economic empowerment. Jackman was so inspired by Dukale’s story, that he made – and kept – a promise to him that is revealed in the film.

BEST OF THE FEST: “American Real: The Forrest Lucas Story” Film Screening

For the first time, Forrest Lucas goes back to where his childhood home once stood to wrestle with demons of the past. With the help of his sisters, he relives a painful youth. What starts out as a simple documentary about the life of one of America’s self-made millionaires turns into a journey of self-discovery and forgiveness. Hesitant to dredge up old memories of pain and strife, Forrest explores a range of emotions he’s kept bottled inside for most of his life.

Along with the retelling of Forrest’s past, the film also explores the story of his wife, Charlotte Lucas, and their tale of love and sacrifice. Their bond is what their company, Lucas Oil, was truly built upon. Through interviews with many of Lucas’ employees, the film looks at what drives Forrest and, as Charlotte says, “keeps the ball rolling.”

BEST OF THE FEST: “East Side Sushi” Film Screening

Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast – very fast. This single mother can slice and dice anything you throw at her with great speed and precision. When Juana lands a position as a kitchen assistant at Osaka Japanese restaurant, a whole new world of cuisine and culture are discovered, far removed from everything she has ever known.

While working in the restaurant’s kitchen, Juana secretly observes the sushi chefs and eventually teaches herself to make all kinds of sushi – with a Mexican twist. Her creativity sparked, Juana’s re-ignited passion for food drives her to want more from her job and her life. But when she is unable to work there as a sushi chef because she is neither male nor Japanese, Juana embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined not to let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.
