Hugh Acheson of Five & Ten, The National, Gosford Wine and Empire State South
On today's THE FOOD SEEN, Hugh Acheson chef/owner of Five & Ten, The National, and Empire State South, in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia, takes A New Turn in the South (his cookbook) on the road, preaching the gospel of the South ... and his Ottawa upbringing. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
"First and foremost, I cook for a community and that community is rich and poor. I want to appeal to all of those people. I want everybody to have an excuse at least once a year to come to the restaurant. If I was to isolate it and decide to [source everything locally], it would probably be more expensive food."
