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.

Chef Ford Fry has a winner with latest venture The Optimist

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 1: Taste of Atlanta 2012

Grills Gone Wild

Another weekend has come and gone, but what separates this weekend from the last, is the lack of a local food festival to keep our stomachs satiated.
