7th Annual Farm-To-Fork Food Invasion: October 13
We are thrilled to announce this year's "Invading Chef" for the 7th Annual Farm to Fork Food Invasion is Chef Anne Quatrano, the renowned Atlanta-based chef and James Beard Award winner for “Best Chef Southeast.”
The 100-person seated farm dinner will feature a menu celebrating fall produce grown at Hampstead Farm, by other local area producers, and at Quatrano's Summerland Farm.
Beginning at 6pm, guests will be treated to a cocktail and Gulf oyster reception followed by a family-style, four-course meal. Each guest receives a complimentary copy of Chef Quatrano’s cookbook, Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality.This annual fundraiser dinner benefits the Hampstead Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which supports local educational and healthy food initiatives.
Chef Quatrano is known for her commitment to freshness, flavor and simplicity. A longtime advocate of sustainability, Quatrano prides her menus for using locally grown seasonal and organic ingredients, frequently harvested from her own gardens and hen-houses.
Together with chef-husband Clifford Harrison, Quatrano operates five of Atlanta’s most celebrated restaurants: Bacchanalia, Floataway Café, Little Bacch, as well as the popular cook’s market, Star Provisions. In late 2015, Quatrano opened W. H. Stiles Fish Camp (aka Dub’s), in the newly renovated Ponce City Market.
Quatrano has won a number of James Beard nominations and awards, including “Best Chef Southeast” in 2003. In 2013 and 2014 Quatrano was nominated for the James Beard “Outstanding Chef Award,” and in 2013 Bacchanalia was nominated for “Outstanding Service Award.” Quatrano’s cookbook, Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality, was published by Rizzoli in October 2013, and showcases the inspiration and philosophy behind Quatrano and Harrison’s creative processes and their true passion for the kitchen.
This year's 100-person seated dinner will feature a menu celebrating fall produce grown at Hampstead Farm, the 1.5-acre community farm at Hampstead. Beginning at 6pm, guests will be treated to a cocktail reception and oyster bar followed by a family-style, four-course meal. Setting up a “kitchen” inside the Hampstead Farm Barn with a fire pit grill outside, Chef Quatrano will prepare a truly farm-to-table meal in a relaxed and festive fall atmosphere. Guests will receive a complimentary copy of Chef Quatrano’s cookbook, Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality.
