Hidden History of Nashville

Creator: George R. Zepp | History - 2009

In this unique collection of columns, longtime journalist and Tennessee native George Zepp illuminates a less familiar side of the city.

Publisher: The History Press

About this book
Perched on the banks of the Cumberland River, Nashville is best known for its role in the civil rights movement, world-class education and, of course, country music. In this unique collection of columns, longtime journalist and Tennessee native George Zepp illuminates a less familiar side of the city. Learn the secrets of Timothy Demonbreun, one of the city's first residents, who lived with his family in a cliff-top cave; Cortelia Clark, the blind bluesman who continued to perform on street corners after winning a Grammy award; and Nashville's own Cinderella story, which involved legendary radio personality Edgar Bergen and his ventriloquist protge. Cleverly rendered, using questions from readers across the nation, these little-known tales abound with Music City mystery and charm.

Processed Cheese — J. L. Kraft grew up on a dairy farm in Stevensville, Ontario. While working as a grocer he was struck by the amount of cheese that was wasted on wheels of cheddar when the dried rind was scraped off to get at the fresh interior. He resolved to find a way to use this “waste” product, experimenting with double boilers, preservatives and cheddar. Eventually he found a way of stabilizing the dairy product that has come to be known as processed cheese.2. Frozen Foods — The technology to freeze food quickly and transport it to markets far away was developed in Halifax in 1928. Within a year, “ice fillets” were being sold to fish-deprived Torontonians who loved the taste and didn’t seem to mind the high price tag. Despite this, the fishing industry and private companies lost interest and quickly mothballed the project. In 1930, a feisty American, Colonel Clarence Birdseye, claimed responsibility for developing frozen foods and promptly made a fortune.3. Pablum — Invented in 1930 by Dr. Alan Brown, assisted by researchers Theodore Drake and Fred Tisdall. The add-water baby cereal revolutionized infant nutrition, and, of course, became synonymous with food that was bland and mushy.4. Poutine — Although many claim responsibility for the crowd-pleasing combination of squeaky cheese curds, canned gravy and french fries, it is generally agreed that the first order of this regional specialty of Quebec was served up by restaurant owner Fernand Lachance in 1957. Many variations on the original recipe exist including one deluxe version with foie gras served in Montreal’s Pied de Cochon bistro.

    I love this show!

    5/5 Gayle Rodgers - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 4 (Amazon Video) I absolutely love this show! I love the fact that there are so many characters and plot lines going on. Some of the characters I adore (can you say Deacon?) And some you love to hate on (Teddy and Jeff). Then there are the ones you want to help (Juliette, Avery, Scarlet And Gunther). The music is really good and I like the fact that it is filmed in Nashville. Nashville is one of my favorite cities to visit! All in all it is a night time soap but we all have our guilty pleasures.

    Why stop now? Wonderful show!

    5/5 just wondering (in a large city) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 4 (Amazon Video) I am very unhappy that Nashville is ending. In fact, I am becoming more and-and more unhappy with ABC and its programming. I am looking for something that is relatable and not too edgy and it seems that almost everything ABC produces these days is just totally deadening. I've gone back to reading good literature and now am watching PBS and just getting out and doing things. By the time you sit through commercials and watch the same old, same old type of "stuff" over and over, it's just not worth the time. Nashville was a most enjoyable program. The characters were believable and, for the most part, likable. The acting was good and the music really added something. The Nashville theme was fun. I'm really going to miss my Nashville friends, but not ABC. You have really turned me off. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 27, 2016
