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.


In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine 2 1/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon PeachDish Salt. When liquid comes to a simmer, stir in grits, stirring continuously as the liquid returns to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15-20 minutes. Using a whisk or flat-edged wooden spoon, stir along the bottom every 5 minutes or so to prevent the grits from scorching. When grits are creamy and tender, turn off the heat, cover the pot and let rest on the stove 10-15 minutes.
While grits cook, prepare your mise en place: Peel and thinly slice onion. Peel and mince garlic. Remove and discard mushroom stems; thinly slice caps. Cut or tear spinach into bite-size pieces.
Season chicken on all sides with a total 1/4 teaspoon PeachDish Salt.
Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon cooking oil. When the oil is shimmering add chicken. Cook without disturbing until browned on the bottom, 3-4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until the chicken is opaque all the way through, firm to the touch and browned on the second side, 2-3 minutes more. Remove chicken from the pan to a small bowl, cover with a plate and set aside.
Reduce heat under skillet to medium, and add remaining 1 teaspoon cooking oil. When oil is hot add onion and garlic. Cook while stirring until they begin to become translucent, 2-3 minutes.
Add mushrooms and 1/4 teaspoon PeachDish Salt. Cook while stirring until mushrooms are tender, 5-6 minutes.
Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour. Add spinach leaves, Bragg Liquid Aminos and remaining 1/2 cup water. Stir until spinach is wilted, 3-4 minutes. Return chicken to pan, along with any resting juices. Cover each breast in sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with remaining PeachDish Salt. Add a little water to adjust sauce, if needed.
Stir butter into grits, and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve chicken smothered in sauce with grits on the side, and enjoy!
