Athens Chefs Dinner in Photos

On Monday, July 14, home.made catering hosted the Athens Chefs Dinner featuring the culinary talents of the hosts (Mimi Maumus and Shae Rehmel), the Branded Butcher, 5&10, Pulaski Heights BBQ, the World Famous and Heirloom Cafe.

The theme for July was foraged foods, and the chefs pulled in ingredients like wild berries, ginkgo leaves and even wild boar to craft their dishes.

Here are some highlights from the event cribbed from home.made's Facebook page. Not pictured: Sal Speights of Heirloom Cafe doing blackberry soba noodles and pickeled chantrelles and World Famous' Jarad Blanton's blackberry wasabi, shiitake powder, sweet Thai chili spring rolls.
