It’s worth noting that Barton’s entry received the 7th most votes of all the entries. I have yet to try this out, but regardless, it looks appealing in Barton’s video. Meanwhile, it certainly fit the bill of my friends search for something sweet to go along with salmon. Details after the jump!
Though a tip of the hat from the food community usually only comes after mentions of Krog’s big brother and sister (the aforementioned Rathbun’s and Rathbun’s Steak), many wine enthusiasts in Atlanta vigilantly frequent this 750 square foot watering hole from celeb chef and big green egg enthusiast Kevin Rathbun.
Answer: Jay Swift, Anne Quatrano, Hugh Acheson, Chris Hastings, Kevin Gillespie, Bruce Logue. Question: Who are just a few of the awesome chef’s showing up at this years Attack of The Killer Tomato Festival?
Yes ladies and gents … it is that time again. Thanks to the good folks over at Georgia Organics, the Killer Tomatoes are back. Just like last year, the event will land at the Westside Urban Market, home to places like JCT Kitchen and Star Provisions. From 1pm – 5pm on Sunday August 8th, you’ll be able to indulge yourself in a sea of all things red.
Last night, I posted on a troubling website that was trying to sell reservations to some of Atlanta’s most notable restaurants. Well, a lot has happened since then. Thanks to some amazing internet word of mouth, 911Reservations.com went offline within a few hours. Then, the owners tried to get another scam site up under a sub-domain at mybigcommerce.com, but that too was soon killed off. Not be be deterred, the owners still have a another site up, but it’s thin on the reservations (see below). However, the story isn’t done there.
[Update: Please view the bottom of the post for the most up to date list of fraudulent listings, Additionally, I will pin this post to the top of my site until Sunday]
Thanks to an email from the gang over at Rathbun’s (website), 911 Reservations, a website looking to pull a fast one over restaurants across the country, is having a hard time pulling off their scam. The details are as follows:
Within the past few weeks, 911 Reservations started making a series of Valentine’s Day reservations at some of the most popular restaurants in several major cities across the country. They used a handful of numbers and a group of fake names. Primarily focused on the Atlanta restaurant scene, the “company” hoped to sell these highly desirable eating appointments for as much as $100. Luckily, word is starting to spread and some of the bogus accounts are being taken off the books. More details after the jump!
As I mentioned yesterday, I recently had the pleasure of attending one of the seasonal cooking classes offered up by Kevin Rathbun and his staff over at Rathbun’s. While we hope to have a full-fledged recap posted in the next couple of days, I thought this was as good a time as any to talk about the classes and give you guys and dolls a heads up on how to secure a spot. The most important thing to remember is that they go on sale on October 1st. Last year, I had to call back twice just to get through … so get your redial finger ready.
Coming in at $350/duo (one cook + one guest), these aren’t for the faint of heart. The deal is that the person doing the cooking shows up at 1:30, is tossed into a group, and then spends the next 3-hours jumping around the Rathbun’s kitchen. Three-hours later, your guest shows up for apps (which you help serve). Then, everyone sits down, has a little drink, and dines on a gluttonous dinner.
Without spoiling the post, I will tell you that these are not your traditional “chef talks and chops” type classes. Rather, these are throw yourselves to the wolves sort of events where by you really get to get in there. Don’t worry – the staff keeps thing very well organized and you will have one of a bevy of top notch chefs at your disposal for teaching and discussion.
Farm to Table Cooking Class: Sunday, September 20, 2009
Southern Holiday Cooking Class: Sunday, November 15, 2009
Full details are available on the Rathbun’s Cooking Class Website, but all you have to do to reserve is call 404.524.8280. I guess the only other mission critical piece of info is that Rathbun’s sends you a gift card that serves as your ticket – DON’T LOSE IT!!!!!!!!
This past Sunday, Adam and I went to Rathbun’s in Inman Park for their farm-to-table cooking class. There is a whole lot to say about this as I have about 200 pictures and a notebook full of scribble. Luckily, the two videos I shot came out half-decent. While they are nothing close in quality to the videos put out by Rowdy Food, I was reasonably pleased that my camera skills didn’t completely suck. As for the audio … well … it is what it is.
While there is a whole mess of stuff to say on this (so be on the look out), I thought we’d start ya’ll off with a few short videos. The star of the shows is chef Adam Williams, a 24-year-old wunderkind, who helped take Team Two to the promise land. In his spare time, Williams serves as one of Kevin Rathbun’s devout minions chefs. Enjoy!
First Downtown Atlanta did it, then Midtown rolled the dice. Now Inman Park is getting in on the action. Starting September 21st and running through the 27th, twelve restaurants in the Inman Park neighborhood will offer up a special prix-fixe menu. By now, there’s a good chance you know the drill. If not, here’s the short of the short: three courses will run you $25 [most of the time]. I say most of the time because there are a few exceptions. A meal at Rathbun’s Steak will run you $35 while Sauced, The Albert, and Pure Taqueria will run their specials at $15.
To further add to the confusion, Sauced and Pure Taqueria, that taco chain out of Alpharetta, won’t actually be open. Apparently, Pure Taqueria won’t actually be open in time for restaurant week – so I’m not sure how that qualifies them. Similarly, neither will Sauced. However, the latter will host guests on the 25th from 6-10pm for $15 cash money. I’ll elaborate on those goings on in another post. Full details after the jump.
Looking for something to do this weekend? Head down to Grant Park for the 7th annual Corks And Forks event. The event runs Saturday, August 29th and Sunday, August 30th (1-5pm both days). For $45/day, you have an opportunity to taste a lot of food and drink from a number of Atlanta restaurants. When you show up, you are given a bag of color-coded chips. The chips give you an opportunity to sample each eatery. However, food is limited, so get there early. Complete list after the jump!
Recently, Atlanta super chef Kevin Rathbun made an appearance over on the Today Show. He offered to serve up some piping hot grits! They flashed a recipe up for a short bit. I’ve posted that recipe after the video!
