Savor the Season

This week at PRFM…

Chef Demo with Thomas McKeown
of Grand Hyatt Atlanta 

10:00 a.m. on 7/14
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Whole Foods Market
If you ever joined Chef Thomas McKeown on one of his farmers market tours at PRFM, you know just how passionate he is about local foods. You also know that he’s a pretty smart, fun, and talented guy. What can we say? He makes an impressive impression. You’ll want to stop by the demo tent and check out how this European born and trained chef creates delicious dishes out of the sustainable ingredients indigenous to the South. Chef McKeown highlights local and organic as the executive chef at Grand Hyatt Atlanta’s Cassis restaurant and oversees all of the hotel’s weddings, social gatherings, and corporate shindigs. He’s also a member of Hyatt’s Sustainable and Responsible eating team—yes, that is a thing, and yes, it is very cool. What else is cool, you might ask? Local goat cheese mousse, Georgia organic heirloom tomato jam, and crisp crostini with olive oil. See how it’s made and try a tasty sample this Saturday! P.S. Chef demo recipes can be found here, updated after each PRFM demo.
