The midcentury supper club reimagined, Mediterranean meets Mexican in Brookwood Hills, and Todd Richards’s soulful new spot.
Miller Grove High School, located in southeast DeKalb County, is the largest high school in the district. The population is 96 percent black and 76 percent low-income, and a majority of students receive free or reduced-price lunch. And for more than 10 years, one of Miller Grove’s bragging rights has been its culinary program, headed by chef Keio Gayden.
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.
Todd Richards found that one of the biggest obstacles for black chefs is the lack of economic resources for opening their own restaurants. That's why he sees his new cookbook, Soul, as a transformative text to make soul food higher in economic value.
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.
The couple behind H. Harper Station recently launched a new hospitality consultancy called Flying Pig Hospitality. One of their first projects is consulting on City Pharmacy, a new restaurant located in an actual former pharmacy in Covington's downtown square that dates back to the late 1920s.
Heading to this year's Atlanta Food & Wine Festival? Here's what's new for 2017 and the events you won't want to miss.
Atlanta is a city that looks outward far more than inward, or even nearby. Outward, say, to the Lower East Side (the General Muir’s pastrami), or to China (Gu’s Dumplings), or to France (Bread & Butterfly’s tender, airy omelets). With the glorious exception of Ryan Smith at Staplehouse, I didn’t find a posse of young, or youngish, chefs all cooking as much for each other as for the public. The priority in Atlanta is less innovation based on local ingredients, as at Staplehouse, than finding a formula that works and then pumping out food to fit it. This makes for generous, untweezed food. But it also means food that, once successful, can become rote.
