Chef Ford Fry’s restaurants JCT Kitchen, The Optimist, Beetlecat and Marcel have helped him soar to culinary stardom, renowned by honors from James Beard and Bon Appetit. But to be delicious and crowd pleasing, the humble restaurateur says food doesn’t need to be complicated.
When Atlanta-based restaurateur Ford Fry cooks at home, he’s looking for meals that are healthy, while not skimping on flavor. He uses the tastes of Southeast Asia to bring a lot of pop to the taste buds without added calories or fats.
A foodie town in its own right, Atlanta is one with deep roots that blends sophistication and international influence all the while celebrating food tradition and simplicity.
Featured Inside Chick-fil-A
In an industry dominated by french fries as side items, Chick-fil-A® will soon be one of the first fast food restaurants in the industry to add “superfoods” like kale and Broccolini®, to its menu.
Holiday traditions are part of what makes this season so wonderful. Singing carols, decorating the house, spending time with loved ones — everyone has their own special ways of celebrating. And Chick-fil-A has their own tradition of making the holidays a little sweeter.
“Today is going to be an awesome day. Brought my team Chick-fil-A so they can be on the same page as my mood.”
