Carter Hach

Carter Hach, of Hachland Hill Inn just outside of Nashville, was raised in the kitchen. Some of his earliest memories are of baking with his grandmother, Phila Hach, a one-time flight attendant, cookbook author, television show host, caterer, and chefowner at Hachland Hill Inn, where she built a culinary reputation as the queen of what she called “country cooking,” alongside her kitchen partner, Ruth Williams. When Carter took over at the inn in 2017, he had a lot to live up to—but he had already started brainstorming The Hachland Hill Cookbook, a medley of stories about Phila plus recipes he has been making since childhood that reflect his unique path as the current chef at Hachland Hill.
