Hugh Acheson is the award-winning chef/partner at Athens’ famous Five & Ten restaurant who has just opened a dazzling new restaurant in midtown Atlanta, Empire State South. Now he’s ready to release his first cookbook, and we’re delighted to welcome him to Decatur! The book is ”A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen.” Famed chef Mario Batali calls Acheson ”a modern master” and ”one of the truly great chefs working today.” The Lee Brothers, Matt and Ted, add that Acheson’s delightful book ”brings his kitchen sorcery into everyone’s home kitchen.” We think you won’t want to miss this special program and hear from the Canadian-born chef who opened Five & Ten in Athens over 10 years ago. His cooking combines classic French technique with a Southern sense of place and the freshest ingredients in an innovative style that has excited and satisfied thousands of diners. We’ll have copies of his new book, of course, and we urge you to purchase a copies at this event and get them signed for you and your friends! .
