Chef’s Spotlight

by Ashley Stewart

Winter has settled in here on the Plateau. While there are sure to be a few people daring enough to brave the bitter cold to explore the mountains and waterfalls, the rest of us are looking for something a little warmer and cozier to while away the long nights.

Old Edwards Inn knows the best way to spend an evening is with warm food, jovial vibes and good friends, so join them in January and February for their signature dinner events.

On Saturday, January 25, enjoy a spectacular dinner at Half-Mile Farm by Chef Joe Kindred of Kindred in Davidson, North Carolina, and Steven Satterfield of Miller Union in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kindred was named #1 in Charlotte Magazine’s “50 Best Restaurants in Charlotte.”

A night full of flavor awaits you as these outstanding chefs bring their contemporary and upscale cuisine of the New South to Half-Mile Farm. Dinner is $155 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

On Saturday, February 22, Hugh Acheson of Athens, Georgia, will be cooking up his favorite dishes at The Farm at Old Edwards. As the co-owner of 5&10 Restaurant in Athens, Georgia, Empire State South in Atlanta, as well as Spiller Park Café coffee shop in Atlanta, Acheson was named Best New Chef by Food & Wine Magazine in 2002, and awarded Best Chef Southeast by the James Beard Foundation in 2012. He has developed a style of his own, forging together the beauty of the South with the flavors of Europe. To tide you over until the dinner, check out Acheson’s podcast, “Hugh Acheson Stirs the Pot” – where he sits down with food personalities, entertainers and activists in restaurants and at kitchen tables across the country to talk about what they’re eating and what’s eating them. Dinner is $165 per person, plus tax and gratuity.
