We continue to follow the progress of Chef Chris Hall and the opening of the restaurant Local Three in Atlanta, GA. Chris gave us an update and a behind the scenes tour of the extraordinary kitchen and all its gadgetry. He also talked about their expansion and education program they have planned to utilize all the extra kitchen space. He even gave us a sneak peak at a few menu items he has planned that will bring a smile to your face. Sit back and relax and marvel at all the workings as Chef Chris Hall gives us a behind burner tour of his world class kitchen. Stay Hungry Y’all!
We continue our quest for local Southerners that are doing things Local, Fresh, and Sustainable and have stumbled upon a marriage of food and brew. Meet Crawford Moran, the Brewmaster at 5 Seasons Brewing, and a Southerner with a passion for bringing seasonality and sustainability to the micro-brewing industry. We sat down and talked about what makes 5 Seasons so unique including its symbiotic relationship to the farmers with its constantly changing menus, and the constantly rotating styles of beers that will keep your palates busy for years to come. Throw out all your old notions of what a brew pub is. The dynamic team of Crawford Moran’s brewing and the fresh, local, seasonal cooking provided by Chef David Larkworthy combine to pay great respect to the wonderful ingredients they are both working with. A wonderful local Southern discovery that can’t be missed. Stay Hungry Y’all!

In an effort to bring Southerners back in touch with their food and local producers, The Hungry Southerner is doing a series of interviews with Southern farmers, producers, businesses and chefs discussing what they are doing that is unique to be sustainable, fresh and most important, a respected presence in their local economy. Our goal is to document and share with you some really great stories of Southerners with a passion for what they do. You’ll see everything from a family run pickling business to hand made aprons, sustainable restaurants and even some local dairy farmers. We want our readers to share in our passion for supporting local economy and ensuring that the crafts of these businesses are being honored and passed on to the next generation.
