Two Ryans = One Epic Demo

Chef Demo with 
Ryan Hidinger & Ryan Smith
of Staplehouse
10:00 a.m. on 11/9
Chef Demos are sponsored by
COUNTRY Financial
These two Ryans are changing the way Atlanta (and the world) looks at restaurants. As co-chefs and partners for the highly anticipated Staplehouse, set to open in spring 2014, they’re not only creating a neighborhood restaurant focused on locally produced ingredients—they’re also creating a nonprofit that will benefit from the good food they serve at said restaurant. Staplehouse will be a subsidiary of The Giving Kitchen Initiative, an organization they’ve built with partners Jen and Kara Hidinger to assist the Atlanta restaurant industry with unanticipated financial hardship. In their own words, The Giving Kitchen will “help pay excessive medical and other expenses for the people who anonymously and graciously nourish so many of us during our dining experiences and who may find themselves in a time of need.” Hidinger and Smith are perfectly positioned to lead such an effort, since they’re two of our city’s best “nourishers,” Between them they’ve got experience from Bacchanalia (both Ryans), Floataway Café and Muss & Turner’s (Hidinger, who, with his wife Jen, also pioneered the supper club scene in our city), and Canoe, Restaurant Eugene, Holeman & Finch Public House, and Empire State South (Smith). All that’s to say, this is going to be one epic demo, y’all. Don’t miss it.

Holiday Artist Markets
Nov. 30th & Dec. 14th 
(look for us inside)
PRFM moves indoors for two dates of holiday shopping! Give local this year, with choices from fine foods like bacon, hot chocolate, and artisanal jams to crafts from local artists (think handmade baskets, wood and glass creations, ceramics, pottery, jewelry, felt, scarves, silks, kids’ items, and more!). Just can’t decide? PRFM has gift cards, too. So, bring the family for some good food and special shopping this holiday. We’ll see you inside the Cathedral of St. Philip!

Remember… Peachtree Road Farmers Market is open from 9am to 12pm every Saturday through December 14th, so come on by for all of your holiday needs—we’ve got food, gifts, or even food gifts (you’re welcome).
