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.

Acidic Berliner Weisse
It shouldn't be a surprise that Berliner Weisse was once the most popular beer in Berlin. In the 19th century, there were 50 breweries producing this style of beer in Berlin. By the twentieth century, there were only two. Simply put, the Berliner Weisse is a low-alcohol wheat beer “infected” with lactobacillus, the bacteria that sours milk, which makes for an interesting sweet and sour flavor combination. In Berlin, you will find they play up the sweet by adding a dose of raspberry syrup to the beer, turning it into a beer cocktail. The sour in a Berliner Weisse should be a complementary flavor to the acidic balsamic glazed chicken.

Zinfandel - Sonoma County, CA
The ripe jammy flavors of zinfandel help balance the sweet and sour notes of the balsamic glaze. It goes well with the richness of the potatoes and the mesquite notes of bacon.
