Say “Cheese”

Everyone in Atlanta (and beyond) knows all about Tim Gaddis…or do they? I had the opportunity to sit down with everyone’s favorite Cheesemonger from Star Provisions for a Q&A session to find out everything from how he got his start in the business (did you know he was a police officer first?), to his current favorite cheeses, and a preview into what he has in store for the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, which comes to town May 30 – June 2, 2013.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM

THE EAT. DRINK. REPEAT. FAMILY!

 

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. – W.T. Purkiser

 

On this day when we give thanks, the operative word is to give. Many families in my hometown (and neighboring areas) have been displaced from their homes and have lost everything due to Hurricane Sandy. So on this day, we ask you to donate to those in need –  you can see a list of ways to help, volunteer and donate here… and for that kind gesture we give you thanks.

Thanksgiving Dinner Inspiration

From my family’s table… dishes to inspire a great meal

Every year as many others do, my family and I come together to give thanks around a bountiful table of delicious food. From a small family of 5 to a table that will seat 10 in just a few nights, we’ve tried and tested many new dishes over the years. Recently, we seemed to have found irresistible recipes (or invented a few of our own) and perfected our Thanksgiving dinner. Whether your gathering with your family or friends, here’s some dinner inspiration from our table to yours.

Chef Ford Fry has a winner with latest venture The Optimist

Newest addition to the Fry food empire has locals and national food writers buzzing

Growing up in the northeast has meant access to some of the finest seafood from Maine to Maryland. It’s also made me somewhat of an expert in the field of crustaceans. Summers in Boston spent at Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar, Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough in Noank, CT, and countless nights at some of New York City’s culinary masterpieces including Pearl Oyster Bar, Mary’s Fish Camp and Red Hook Lobster Pound. So it seemed living in Atlanta meant sacrificing the food I’ve come to know and love most in my world… until now – Meet The Optimist.

Recap Part 2: Taste of Atlanta 2012

The Main Event

We continue our two part recap series with the main event – the Taste of Atlanta 2012 weekend. After The Big Grill, we had our game faces on and were ready to dig in to all the city had to offer. Fellow Eat. Drink. Repeat. editor Chris Watkins was one of the judges on Saturday, while I set out to try (almost) everything there… I got full pretty quickly, so thankfully my team of expert foodie friends helped manage the work load.

Recap Part 1: Taste of Atlanta 2012

So for those looking to relive the experience, or a reason to try it out for the first time when it returns next year, read on for your 2012 festival recap, and hope to see you all October 2013 for the 12th annual Taste of Atlanta!
