On Sunday night, we attended a special event celebrating Seven Lamps’ one year anniversary, which is a restaurant in the Shops Around Lenox in Buckhead. The event featured plates from Atlanta’s most reputable chefs as well as drinks crafted by top notch Atlanta based mixologists. As my husband put it, this was kind of like the equivalent of my Superbowl (the other primary contender being Oscar night). I loved having the opportunity to see what is on the cutting edge of the culinary world. Here are some photographic highlights from the evening:
a total Top Chef moment ~ lining up the first course
a spooky cocktail
Kevin Rathbun preparing his dish
scallops with parsnips, black truffle, mache
another course, ready to go
close up ~ smoked trout terrine, with lemon creme fraiche, dressed roe
duck breast and pastrami croustillade of grassroots duck with sour grape mustard, apple, greens
black pepper spaghetti with bacon, egg, truffle and pecorino
can’t forget dessert ~ caramelia cremuex, souffle of chocolate, duck fat peanuts, cocoa nib syrup, cereal milk ice cream
