Sunday, April 12
Summerland Farm
Cartersville, GA

Each Spring, Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison host the New South Family Supper, a benefit for the Southern Foodways Alliance. This year, the supper will celebrate the unsung heroes of the restaurant world, like dishwashers, waiters, valets, hostesses, and bussers.  All impact the dining experience, but few are recognized and celebrated for their work. Farmers are finally beginning to get their due. Now it’s time to celebrate those people Martin Luther King Jr called “members of the ground crew.”

Join us this year as guest chefs create dishes inspired by these unsung heroes. The roster of participating chefs includes:

  • Mashama Bailey, The Grey, Savannah
  • Greg Baker, The Refinery, Tampa
  • David Bancroft, Acre, Auburn, AL
  • Greg Best, Krog Street Market, Atlanta
  • Kathleen Blake, The Rusty Spoon, Orlando
  • Harper Bradshaw, Harper’s Table, Suffolk, VA
  • Shaun Doty, Bantam + Biddy, Atlanta
  • Corbin Evans, Oxford Canteen, Oxford, MS
  • Michael Fojtasek and Grae Nonas, Olamaie, Austin
  • Ford Fry, JCT Kitchen, Atlanta
  • Eddie Hernandez, Taqueria del Sol, Atlanta
  • Matt Kelly, Mateo Tapas, Durham, NC
  • Gerry Klaskala, Aria, Atlanta
  • Terry Koval, Wrecking Bar, Atlanta
  • Frank Lee, Slightly North of Broad, Charleston
  • Bruce Logue, Bocca Lupo, Atlanta
  • Rob McDaniel, Springhouse Restaurant, Alexander City, AL
  • Van Nolintha, Bida Manda, Raleigh
  • Todd Richards,The Pig & the Pearl, Atlanta
  • Steven Satterfield, Miller Union, Atlanta
  • Karl Worley, Biscuit Love Truck, Nashville

There will be ham. And biscuits. And fresh vegetables. And cold libations. There will also be a screening of Red Dog, a profile of 2014 Ruth U. Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award winner Goren Avery of Highlands Bar & Grill in Birmingham, Alabama.

Diners will gather in Atlanta for the bus ride out to Summerland Farm. The most incredible road trip snacks you’ve ever tasted will be provided, as well as something to wet your whistle (because, of course, you’re not driving). If you live closer to Cartersville than Atlanta, we’ll email the week of April 6 to arrange for a second (more convenient) park and ride location for the bus.

Tickets, priced at $250 each, will include food, beverage, and programming. Click here to purchase your tickets online.
