Chef Seth Freedman

Chef Seth has cooked with Oceana, March, and Tabla in NYC, and the Four Seasons and Bacchanalia at Star Provisions in Atlanta. His culinary style focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients from local, sustainable producers.

Since joining the PeachDish team in 2014 as Culinary Director, Seth Freedman has created hundreds of exciting and fun-to-make menus using fresh, seasonal ingredients from around the South. Seth worked with top chefs in New York and in Atlanta, and worked as the Program Director for a farm to school pilot program aimed at developing standards-based, hands-on garden and cooking curriculum for children from kindergarten to fifth grade. Seth also spent several years working as a farmers market chef in Atlanta. During this time, he established and developed connections between the market and local schools, after-school clubs, senior living facilities, and other community organizations. At these community connection posts, he shared his culinary knowledge and expertise, giving hands on cooking instruction as he explained how farmers markets can benefit an individual's health and community. In 2016, Chef Seth was named a Georgia Grown Executive Chef for his commitment to locally grown food. Seth loves cooking and teaching. This is as obvious when he reminisces on his former role at farmers markets as it is when he discusses his role at PeachDish. He believes that the objectives for both positions are not so different; both as Market Chef and as PeachDish Culinary Director, Seth helps people approach the idea of cooking for themselves, and gives them the tools to do so in a way that improves their health and supports Georgia’s local farming community. PAST WORK: Oceana, NYC, New York; March, NYC, New York; Tabla, NYC, New York; Four Seasons, Atlanta, GA; Star Provisions, Atlanta, GA; Bacchanalia, Atlanta, GA; Seeds of Nutrition, Atlanta, GA; Community Farmers Markets, East Atlanta Village, Atlanta GA.


Heat oven to 350° F. Prepare your mise en place: Peel 2 cloves garlic, and quarter lengthwise. Peel sweet potato, quarter lengthwise, and cut quarters crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut celery into small (1/4 inch) dice.
In a medium saucepan, combine 4 cups water and garlic. Place over high heat. When water comes to a boil add sweet potato. Simmer until sweet potato pieces can be pierced with a fork with just a little pressure, 12-15 minutes. Pour sweet potatoes and garlic into a colander, and drain thoroughly.
While sweet potato cooks, make burger patties: In a mixing bowl thoroughly combine ground turkey and burger seasoning. Divide meat into equal halves. Place on a clean work surface, dust with all-purpose flour, and form portioned meat into 2 patties, 4 1/2 to 5 inches in diameter. Make the patties slightly thinner at the center than at the edges. Place patties on a plate, and keep in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
Pull out garlic pieces from colander. In a large mixing bowl combine garlic, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon PeachDish Salt. Use a fork to mash garlic and seasonings into a paste.
Add yogurt to garlic mixture, and stir until fully combined. Stir in celery. When sweet potatoes are cool, add to the bowl, and toss to combine. Taste and season as desired with PeachDish Salt.
Cut buns in half, and toast if desired. Dress with your preferred condiments (we really like it with spicy mustard and mayo), and place greens on top buns. Arrange buns on dinner plates, and set aside.
Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon cooking oil. When oil is shimmering, add burger patties. Sear without disturbing until bottom is browned and hot juices are starting to rise through top of patties, 2-3 minutes. Working quickly, flip patties, top each patty with half of cheese, add 2 tablespoons water to pan, and cover pan. Cook, covered, until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes. Carefully uncover by opening lid away from you (the steam can burn you). Place 1 patty on each bottom bun.
Serve burgers with sweet potato salad on side. Enjoy!
