Whole Foods Market

Y'all know Hugh Acheson. Meet Hugh's Executive Chef from his Athens restaurant The National—Peter Dale. No, really, you should come meet him this Saturday. A UGA grad, Peter decided to pursue his culinary passion shortly after college, in 1999. With family background in Ecuador and Greece, he had experienced a diverse array of cuisines and was ready to get his start in the field. He began as an apprentice at Hugh's Five & Ten restaurant, with plans to attend culinary school thereafter. Instead, he chose travel as his education and spent time in Europe, mostly Spain, where he found further inspiration and honed his skills. In 2007, Dale and Hugh opened The National, combining their interests in cooking, travel, and food politics. The daily-changing menu features ingredients from local farms, combining the seasons of Georgia with the influences of cuisines from Spain, France, North Africa, Greece, the eastern Mediterranean, and Middle East. You don't have to travel around the world, or even to Athens, to get a taste for Peter's fantastic dishes—you just have to stop by the demo tent, where he'll be cooking up some Asian greens!
