Food Network star and cookbook maven Ina Garten is coming to Nashville as part of an 11-date book tour promoting her new memoir.

What's happening: During the Nashville event, Garten will have an on-stage conversation with author Ann Patchett, who owns Parnassus Books.

  • Celebrities guiding the conversations in other cities include Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Frances McDormand and Laura Linney.
  • Garten said this will be her first book tour in seven years.

Yes, but: Tickets for the Nashville event, which will take place Dec. 12 at Montgomery Bell Academy, sold out within hours.

  • In a social media post, Parnassus reported a few more tickets might be released on the event website in the week or two before the conversation.

💭 Nate here: I called Adam not long after sunrise to break the surprise news of Garten's visit.

  • Garten is at the center of our pop culture Venn diagram — we consider her the first seat on the Mount Rushmore of U.S. cooking show hosts.
  • Luckily, we both secured tickets. Stay tuned for our coverage in the next few months.
