Top chef Anne Quatrano featured at Buckhead’s farmers market
Quatrano and her husband operate Bacchanalia, Floataway Café, Star Provisions, Fish Camp at Ponce City Market, and Little Bacch. Chef Quatrano will do her cooking demonstration at 10 a.m. at the Farmers Market Dec. 12, which runs from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at The Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road in Buckhead.
Quatrano’s love for local, organic produce began at an early age, coming to Georgia from New England to visit her mother’s family farm Summerland, near Cartersville. She is now the fifth generation to live on the farm and many of her restaurant ingredients are grown right there.
Quatrano’s meticulous attention to detail and pride in her ingredients has resulted in her Bacchanalia restaurant being named Atlanta’s top dining spot for years by the major food ranking organizations.
After her chef demonstration, Chef Anne Quatrano will be signing copies of her cookbook, Summerland: Recipes for Celebrating with Southern Hospitality, which is
available for sale at the Cathedral Bookstore. Her signed book makes a fine gift for the special cooks on your holiday shopping list!
On Saturday, Dec. 19—the day of the final Buckhead farmers market for 2015— more than 35 artists will be bringing their locally made wares to help with holiday shopping, in addition to the normal lineup of farmers and prepared food vendors at the market.
The artists are producing fine jewelry, original paintings and photography, hand-stitched and knitted clothing items & accessories, doggy treats and pet goodies, bath and body collections, pottery, fiber and paper art, woven baskets, and much more!
NaturAlmond, Verdant Kitchen, Beautiful Briny Sea, and Doux South—among many others—all will have gift packages for those hard-to-shop-for relatives and friends. And, shoppers at the market will also find plenty of food items to stock up on before the Market season end at 12 noon on Dec. 19.
