Father Knows Best

This week at PRFM…
Father’s Day weekend is upon us. PRFM is your one-stop-shop for pop—pick up all his faves, like bacon, pasta, sweet treats, and (well) pops, maybe? Also, The Homestead will be on hand to help the kids make a Father’s Day card with seed-paper—something dad can read then plant to grow flowers in the garden!

Chef Demo with Jeb Aldrich
of 4th & Swift – 10:00 a.m. on 6/15
Chef Demos are sponsored by
COUNTRY Financial
Like father, like son? If we're talking about two of our city's best chef talents...then, yes. Not only is Jeb Aldrich the chef de cuisine at 4th & Swift, he happens to be the son of its executive chef and owner Jay Swift. And though cooking might be in the blood, Jeb's also got proven sweat (we can't speak to the tears) in the game: classically trained at Johnson & Wales, stints at Charleston’s Peninsula Grill, Atlanta’s Rainwater, Canoe, and much-lauded Joël, and work in Austria and Italy, to be exact. Four years ago he joined his dad at 4th & Swift to create seasonal menus from the highest quality ingredients. Stop by the demo tent this Saturday to enjoy chef Jeb's recipe featuring chicken in honor of Pastured Poultry Week! It’ll be almost like sitting on 4th & Swift’s new patio, only with a few more friends and farmers around. (photo by Our Labor of Love)
