Favorite Foods from Childhood – Atlanta Chefs

October 6, 2010

I would like to highlight my absolute favorite section of the fall 2010 issue – “Chef Talk” by Emily Robinson. (Emily is Flavors‘ editorial intern who attends UGA.) Jamie Annarino inspired Emily to write this article. If you haven’t seen it yet, it incorporates childhood pictures of some of Atlanta’s best-loved chefs with quotes from the chefs about their favorites foods from their childhoods. It really is adorable–and interesting to consider how the chefs’ talents and interests may have been sparked from the best foods from their childhoods. Chefs who participated in this article are: Rebecca Lang, Gerry Klaskala from Aria, Jonathan Jerusalmy, from the St. Regis Altanta, Chris Sedgwick of The Sedgwick Group, Pano Karatossos of Kyma, Kevin Rathbun of Rathbun’s, Matt Albertario of Wildfire Atlanta, Brian Obermeyer of Pastis, Brad Parker of Dantanna’s, Robert Gerstenecker of Park 75, Boyd Rose of Milton’s, Cyrille Holota, Alex Freidman on P’Cheen, Stacy Eames of Highland Bakery and Nick Koulouris of Grecian Gyro.
