Menu Countdown: The Top Ten of 2016

We offer eight menus every week that showcase the freshest produce and highest quality meat with recipes designed to create exciting flavors and wholesome dinners, and while we stand behind each one, there are those that shine much brighter than others. Your feedback is welcomed and your voices have been heard! We now present to you: the top ten menus that recieved the highest accolades from our subscribers in 2016.

Too Much of a Good Thing

A few weeks ago, our farmer friends had a bumper crop of fennel, pounds and pounds more than they could sell. Our fellow Atlantans know that this summer’s heat has been brutal. There was no way that the fennel would survive a trip to another market. Since PeachDish is all about eliminating food waste, Chef Seth got together with the lovely folks at Doux South to come up with a solution. Instead of dumping the fennel, Doux South pickled it and we made it the star of this week’s Smoked Bacon & Butter Beans with Pickled Fennel over Herbed Rice!

Partner Spotlight: Jensen Olesen

Our local Atlanta partners, Jensen Olesen (formerly Cook & Host), pride themselves on their collections of beautiful, and functional, table and kitchenware created by Danish designers. Their unique brands offer a minimalist but elegant aesthetic that will brighten any table, kitchen or home. Their cookware is sturdy and efficient yet sleek and modern.

Supplier Spotlight: CalyRoad Creamery

Atlanta's only artisan cheesemaker, CalyRoad Creamery uses the most quality, freshest ingredients to craft their cheeses. CalyRoad makes and ages all of their products by hand using all natural cow's milk and regionally sourced goat curd. They provide an assortment of fresh and semi-fresh cheeses including aged goat cheese, feta, chèvre, and chocolate & cheese truffles. Their famous, award-winning camembert-style WayPoint is featured in our Valentine's Meal Kits' cheese course.

Cook's Warehouse

If you're lucky enough to live in our hometown of Atlanta, we hope you're lucky enough to have visited Cook's Warehouse! The shop is a winter wonderland for the home cook, with beautiful decor and cookware, cutlery, bakeware, gadgets and tools, tabletop items, and so much more. They also host cooking classes, with upcoming topics including "Christmas in Tuscany" and "Mastering the Art of the Perfect Southern Holiday Feast."

Atlanta Community Food Bank

This time of year is all about good food and time with family. It's a time to be thankful and to make memories to cherish, especially around the table. We're proud to support the Atlanta Community Food Bank, an organization founded in 1979 that distributes more than 50 million pounds of food and groceries each year throughout north Georgia. In honor of Cyber Monday, we're donating $5 from each PeachDish gift box purchased to the ACFB. Just select gift box at checkout, and give two gifts in one. A friend or family member receives the joy of cooking while you support an incredible and inspiring organization.
