Ya'll, if you have the opportunity, sign up for the Southern Chef Series in events in Atlanta, which pair a top chefs from the region with a group of twelve guests, who work alongside the chef to create an intimate, multicourse meal.
The series kicked off this past October with Chef Nathalie Dupree and will be expanding in 2010. A few spots remain for the next dinner, January 24, with Atlanta Chef Linton Hopkins.
Not familiar with Chef Hopkins? He is the chef/owner of the fabulous Restaurant Eugene in Atlanta, has competed on The Food Network's "Iron Chef," is a two-time James Beard Award Nominee, and was named as one of Food and Wine magazine's Best New Chefs in 2009. He is also proprietor of Holeman & Finch and H&F Bread Co in Atlanta.
Along with dinner, the $425 package includes accommodations at the Inn at Serenbe, breakfast the following morning at the Blue Eyed Daisy Bakeshop, and a second lesson preparing lunch. Come hungry for knowledge. Come hungry to work. But most of all, come hungry.
Other instructors in the series include: Top Chef contestant Kevin Gillespie.
