Sing for Your Supper with Bob Waggoner
A unique, culinary reality show hosted by award-winning chef and author Bob Waggoner. California-born and French-trained, Waggoner seeks to demystify the preparation of elegant French cuisine while adding a distinctly Southern flair to each dish. The 13-part series takes place before a live audience on the stage of Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium. In each episode, Waggoner calls upon a guest from the audience to assist him, along with a sommelier and a country music artist, whose favorite recipe serves as the inspiration and centerpiece of every episode's meal. As thanks, these musicians must then "sing for their supper."
