Branching more into the magazine world, this was my first opportunity to work with the awesome team at The Local Palate, and a third opportunity working with the great minds of Botiwalla at Ponce City Market! This story covers Chef Meherwan's newest kebab recipes for grilling this season. Dishes included are Tandoori Tri-Tip Kebab Sliders, Paneer Cheese and Veggie Kababs, Botiwalla Lamb Kababs, and his Cumin and Fennel Seed Dry Rub for ribeye and strip steaks.

This story covers another successful $20 Dinner with Creative Loafing, this time with star chef Hannah Chung. I worked with her previously on a "Chefs to watch in 2015" assignment, which turned out to be quite an accurate prediction. She has now opened the new restaurant Simply Seoul Kitchen in Ponce City Market which features her signature kimchi and Korean steamed buns. For this dinner, Hannah prepares a stunning Bibimbap with ground beef bulgogi, fresh veggies, her famous kimchi, and soybean sprout soup. Check out the full story by Stephanie Dazey for recipes and more (as well as a page with a wonderfully insane amount of photos!).
With all the new additions, Ponce City Market keeps calling my name for updates and happenings! This First Look for Creative Loafing was on El Super Pan, a Latino sandwiches restaurant and bar inside PCM's Central Food Hall. The price tags are a bit steep for sandwiches, but this revived concept by Chef Hector Santiago has gotten rave reviews. While not a food critic myself, I can say with full confidence that the Medio Dia was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had with an incredible blend of flavors. Check out Creative Loafing's full story by Sucheta Rawal here.
Ponce City Market, a long-awaited addition to the Atlanta food scene, just got a little bigger (and better) with the recent additions of H&F Burger and Hop's Chicken. Anything I could say about these restaurants would pale in comparison to the article written by Cliff Bostock, which you can check out here. Needless to say, Linton Hopkins is a hero among food fans, myself included.
