Even if it is a good thing, farm-to-table is one of those painfully overused buzz words that even the most foodie of foodies tend to snark about, nowadays.
But on April 21, Southern Food Tour is turning a neat trick by taking the table to the farm, featuring two of Atlanta’s top chefs — recent James Beard Awards nominee Steven Satterfield of Miller Union and recent Cochon 555 winner Ryan Smith of Empire State South.
The S&S tag team of Satterfield and Smith will collaborate on a Southern family-style dinner at Dillwood Farms in Loganville, a purveyor for several Atlanta restaurants. An early sketch of the menu includes deviled farm eggs, chicken two ways, lamb, and seasonal farm veggies.
The $125 ticket price includes charter transportation, a tour of the farm with the owners, cocktails crafted by Miller Union and Empire State South mixologists, dinner in the field with wine pairings, and dessert in the barn. Dillwood Farms, 4000 Brushy Fork Road, Loganville. Tickets: www.southernfoodtour.com
