Show and Tell

This week at PRFM…

Chef Demo
with Joey Ward of Gunshow
10:00 a.m. on 5/2
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Piedmont Hospital
This Saturday under the demo tent, one of “Top Chef” Kevin Gillespie’s “hired guns,” Joey Ward, will bring his passion for local foods and farmers. He's the real deal—knowing he wanted to become a chef as a young boy looking up to his grandfather, a Navy cook. Ward worked in some of Atlanta’s favorite spots, from Woodfire Grill to H. Harper Station, before Gillespie recruited him (and his creativity) for Gunshow. He's since been named Jezebel’s “Rising Star Chef” and listed in Zagat’s “30 Under 30" of people redefining the hospitality industry. Oh, and he’s also the two-year consecutive champ of the Kevin Gillespie Super Bowl Dip Off/Snack Attack competition. Get ready to think outside the [produce] box, y’all.

Chef Pop-Up with Nick Leahy
Grab a bite from Saltyard’s Nick Leahy and support the PRFM Meals on Wheels program, where produce is bought from farmers after the market to serve local seniors in need.

Mercer University Health Screenings
Mercer University student pharmacists will be on hand to provide blood pressure screenings and discuss the results with you. They’ll also share lifestyle modifications for patients with hypertension and info about cardiovascular diseases.
