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.

Spend any time reading about beer and you'll come across the term “noble hops.” There are four varieties of hops that are considered noble: Tettnanger, Saaz, Spalt, and Hallertau. They're considered noble because they are used in about every German and Czech beer style. All these noble hops smell more bitter than they taste. For a dish of summer squash and peppers, we suggest a pilsner that cleans the palate without bringing a lot of bitterness.

Sauvignon Blanc - Friuli, Italy
The grassy notes of Sauvignon Blancs align themselves well to the herbaceousness of the pesto, and work with a wide range of vegetables like pepper and squash. There are ripe and tangy citrus notes that also bounce off the subtle sweet nature of the pesto.
