New York City–based chef Marcus Samuelsson will release a cookbook called A Moving Feast: Recipes and Stories of Soul Food’s Journey North. Through the lens of food, it will share accounts of the Great Migration. Nearly every one of the more than 100 images in the book will have been captured by photographer Angie Mosier, a lifelong Atlantan who is preternaturally talented, excessively humble, and unmistakably white.
The Christiane Chronicles: A love-hate relationship with barstools and a healthy appreciation for gravy
It doesn’t matter if there’s an upholstered seat on your farm-style or artsy modern stools; I need something with armrests and a comfortable back. Plus, my favorite kinds of gravy and where to indulge on them in Atlanta.
Along with three days of tasting tents, the festival features a wide variety of dinners, parties, and learning sessions and hands-on workshops, with notable chefs, restaurateurs, and mixologists such as Justin Anthony (Yebo Beach Haus), Meherwan Irani (Chai Pani), John Castellucci (Castellucci Hospitality Group), Eddie Hernandez (Taqueria del Sol), and Paul Calvert and Greg Best (Ticonderoga Club) presenting.
Taqueria del Sol owner Eddie Hernandez, legendary Southern chef Virginia Willis, and Richards' Southern Fried owner Todd Richards all have new cookbooks debuting this spring that feature some excellent Southern mash-ups such as collard green ramen.
Taqueria del Sol's Eddie Hernandez discusses his hometown in Mexico, music, and his favorite ingredient.

Known as a celebratory food in Mexico, tamales are particularly popular this time of year from the Feast of Guadalupe on December 12th through Three Kings’ Day on January 6th. In Atlanta, tamales can be found year-round, but certain restaurants, like Taqueria Del Sol and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, stock up for the holiday season.
To beloved local cocinero Eddie Hernandez of Taqueria del Sol, too many local restaurants contribute to a prevailing misconception of Mexican fare as greasy, mystery-meat-stuffed calorie bombs with a side of rice and beans—dishes that are nowhere to be found in Mexico. He has curated a few of his favorite recipes for the masses and given us a fresh take on Mexican cuisine. And guess what: All of it is healthy.

"If you’re going to use 100 percent olive oil when you do a salad," he advises, "don’t add anything else. Pure olive oil is something you want to showcase; it doesn't make for a good mixed dressing."
