I feel lucky that Atlanta’s community is so full of culinary diversity. Some of our recent newcomers from Syria inspired me to make this dish that blended  southern and Syrian traditions. I went to a refugee-hosted dinner and had the most amazing pistachio baklava. The nuts were chopped by hand, which created a much nicer and more interesting texture than using a food processor. The syrup was light and not overpowering. My spin was using Elliot pecans, which have a natural sweetness to them, and making my own filo from scratch. Next time I want to make my own orange blossom water using the flowers from a local citrus called the flying dragon. I’ll get flour from a farm near Athens and maybe use local honey for the syrup.

Arabic breakfast with family

Missing our favorite Chả Cá Thăng Long restaurant and the rest of Ha Noi. For this dish the catfish is marinated in turmeric then fried with dill and scallion. You eat it as a salad with vermicelli, fresh herbs, and sweetened fish sauce mixed with lime juice.

For my mom’s birthday, I made her salted caramel ice cream with a peanut butter chocolate crunch.

Bánh Cuốn: steamed rice pancakes, these ones stuffed with shrimp or chicken & mushroom, delicious for breakfast.

Egg coffee: @dbdonchey @fogletron can you guys do this for me when I get back home?

New favorite dessert! Chè! Sweet, slightly thick liquid, hot or cold, mixed with fruits, avocado, rice, red beans, yams, basil seeds, flavored gelatin cubes, and 90 different other ways. This was our favorite chè place so far. The owner is standing on the left side of the photo. She doesn’t need to chènge a thing.

Children loved Chairman Hồ Chí Minh. 👨‍👧🇻🇳

Breakfast #1 🐌🍜

Had a great time putting on a benefit dinner for @concretejungleatl with these wonderful people. Not pictured: all the other amazing cooks and chefs like @seouldier @jhyphenc @maxwelldavenport that were so generous with their time and energy.

Last week I ate a delicious feast prepared by some of our newest Atlantans, who are refugees from Syria. I'm excited about the flavors they're brining to our city. I'm also glad to have the opportunity to help out at the benefit dinner they're putting on at Grocery on Home in Grant Park. If you'd like to come too, visit http://bit.ly/syriansupper for tickets.

Flying Dragons are Atlanta's citrus. They are difficult to eat (check out the seeds), but the juice is bitter and tart, and the rinds are aromatic and bright. On 11/5, @sedodge, @ryansmithchef and I will be serving these—along with an assortment of fruit I've preserved throughout the year—at a 10+ course dinner benefiting Concrete Jungle. Link in profile.
