HAM Director Bill Worthen puts his ancestral Nicholas Peay recipe up against the punchbowl secrets of Cache Restaurant, Loblolly Creamery,  John Selig and Lea Elenzweig, Stone's Throw Brewing, Heritage Grille, One Eleven at the Capital Hotel and Rock City Eats.

Who will win the prize for best noggin'? It's up to you, and while you are there at the HAM, check out the new exhibit of larger-than-life
