Martha McMillin was raised on a farm in Spartanburg County, South Carolina surrounded by good cooks and southern canners. She become a lawyer but never forgot the joys of sharing and preserving good food. McMillin was drawn back to the tastes of the south and pursued her passion for sharing those flavors with others. She opened Preserving Place, where Atlanta residents can go for all of their food preserving needs. Preserving Place is a unique “farm to store” retail concept focusing on food preservation and preserving our Southern sense of place. Their state of the art commercial kitchen is used to make small batch, hand made jams, pickles and condiments, as well as a culinary school, teaching students how to cook and put up their own food at home. In classes, students cook hands-on in an environment of personal attention from the instructor. Their versatile space is a great place for private events, particularly those involving cooking. See how PeachDish has incorporated Preserving Place in our meals. Pick up these flavors for your own kitchen.
