    Deputy Food Editor

    Evan Mah joined Atlanta magazine full time in November 2013 after a successful internship in summer 2012. Chinese by heritage but Southern at heart, he grew up in the chicken-frying, biscuit-baking kitchens of his parents’ restaurants in Mississippi. In 2009 he moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University, where he majored in journalism and sociology and served as editor in chief of the campus newspaper, The Emory Wheel. A lover of Bordeaux, breadbaskets, and afternoon naps, he’s positive he’s going to set the world record for youngest person ever to have gout.


High on the Vine: Whatever happened to Pinot Grigio?

High on the Vine: Where do you spend $12,487 on a single bottle of wine?

Inside one of the biggest wine collections in Atlanta

It takes a lot of guts to cellar wine, the costly process of laying down bottles, letting them age, and waiting years before selling them to customers. Few have the confidence (business can tank quickly). Few have the money (thousands of dollars just sitting on a shelf). Few will commit the space (a room full of bottles replaces a room full of paying customers).  Read More
