  • Celebrate National Pizza Month with us!

    If you read our last post, then you know that we’re in the midst of National Dessert Month. And yet, that’s only one part of the story of October.  One of the most important holidays of the year is already upon us, but it’s one that we never stop celebrating. Unlike Christmas and Thanksgiving, which…

  • Why October makes perfect sense as National Dessert Month

    The scent of autumn takes on many nuances as it wafts through October. There are smoky gusts of bonfires in the air, a musty, earthy smell swirls from the trees alongside multi-colored leaves, and beneath all of that the air itself has a new and brisk scent that’s as crisp as it feels. Inside, the…

  • October’s Featured Brewery: Yee-Haw Brewing Company

    There’s something special brewing at Tomato Head in October – well, it’s not actually brewing here, but it is flowing happily from our taps. What makes our taps so special this month is that what’s coming out of them epitomizes everything we love in beer: the beer tastes good; the brewery offers a nice variety…

    From now until October 5, Tomato Head features the many-hued and luminous paintings of Jessica Payne.

  • Flour Head Bakery’s Chocolate Zucchini Pan Cake

    If you polled farmers about garden humor, I suspect that you’d find out that the poor, prolific zucchini is a popular subject for jokes. That’s because, like rabbits, this summer squash greets life with a singular drive to be fruitful and multiply. I have one gardener friend who tells tales about drive-by squashings; these midnight…

  • The Season is the Reason for the First Tomato Head-Saw Works Collaborative Beer

    The Tomato Head has partnered with Saw Works Brewing Company to create the anniversary beer honored after our 25th anniversary this August. It will be featured during our party on August 29th on Market Square, but otherwise it is only available in the Saw Works tasting room and at both Tomato Head locations. The style of…

  • Tomato Head’s Yellow Squash Crostini with Pesto

    Walking into the Knoxville air and feeling it push back, being caught daily in random patches of heavy rain and lightening, and sweating your ~you know what~ off over the past few weeks of this summer is paying off. Not only did we all sweat out a few pounds and increase our water intake by…

  • Tomato Head’s Quinoa Cakes with Yogurt and Sriracha

    I was so excited when I read Mahasti’s recipe, I let out an audible “yasss” complete with the hand-motion you are probably imagining. Quinoa was the reason behind this. Quinoa is a good source of protein, as well as vitamins B, B6, and E, amino acids, potassium, and a healthy list of other minerals. It…
