Chef Demo with Ron Eyester
of Rosebud & The Family Dog
10:00 a.m. on 6/8
Chef Demos are sponsored by
COUNTRY Financial
Before you enjoy all that delicious, delicious ice cream, don’t forget to stop by the chef demo tent and lay down a layer of the savory stuff. Hint: it is also delicious, courtesy of Ron Eyester. We love Chef Ron’s unique take on what it means to eat local, and we know from experience that he makes preparing the season’s best a whole lot of fun. Ask him about his new restaurants in the works—a pizza joint for Morningside and a diner for Atlantic Station. Or maybe ask about Rosebud’s new weekday brunch menu. Just don’t you worry—“The Angry Chef” is really one of the nicest guys you’ll meet.
