Nashville, Tenn., Capitol Grille, Chef Sean Brock

On a hot summer day in 1984, a young Sean Brock sat in the kitchen at his Grandma Morgan’s farm in Wise, Va., counting the minutes waiting for the bell to signal the completion of his first attempt at baking. The timer rang, and Grandma Morgan carefully removed six crispy buttermilk biscuits — one to celebrate every year of her grandson’s life. For Brock, marking that milestone with his grandmother was much more satisfying than blowing out a candle-laden birthday cake. From that day forward, he spent as much time as possible in his grandmother’s kitchen, where he enthusiastically embraced her vast knowledge of Southern cuisine.

Milan: Italian Renaissance

If you can do only one thing in Milan, be sure to see Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, housed in Santa Maria delle Grazie Church. Plan ahead — even calling a few weeks or months in advance is a good idea — as reservations are required to secure one of the 15-minute slots to see the recently restored masterpiece. Call for reservations (tel 39 02 8942 1146) between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. Visiting hours are 8 a.m. through 6:45 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Some online agencies also sell reservations, but there’s usually an additional service charge.
