What began as a conversation on Twitter months ago became an eight course "Blood Dinner" at Livingston last night. Chef Zeb Stevenson brought in the formidable talents of Tyler Williams, Ryan Smith, and Josh Hopkins for a collaborative meal of blood-centric dishes. The menu ranged from classical dishes like pressed squab to futuristic inventions like the "Bloody Pebbles," which were something like the Dippin' Dots of blood. The chefs seemed to be genuinely excited by the challenge and their enthusiasm showed on the plates. Take a look below.
A few months ago, I mentioned a Twitter conversation that began with chef Zeb Stevenson posing a quick question: "Was told that ATL is not ready for blood sausages etc. on menus. Care to weigh in?" That evolved into a larger conversation about innovation and boundaries in Atlanta's dining scene and a few chefs salivating about an imaginary all-blood dinner.
