When big-time Atlanta fashion journalist and entrepreneur Tova Gelfond (Eide Magazine) paused for a minute to become a mother, we coyly asked if she’d be willing to join our fashion issue as a guest editor. Between moving house (she moved from Sandy Springs to Grant Park recently) and welcoming the precious Ayla, Tova explored a fall fashion outlook for us. Lucky you! Enjoy Tova’s picks and look for more from her (if we’re really lucky).
We have a fun reader promo for you. Perimeter Chef Linda Harrell is excited to welcome James Beard Award-winning entrepreneur and highly acclaimed Chef Virginia Willis to Food 101 on September 21 for an evening to celebrate a true Southern’s favorite vegetable: grits! Perimeter North Lifestyle magazine is thrilled to have her in the house and will be giving away two tickets to this special dinner on our Facebook page! Chef Willis’ newest book and an inspiration for the event, Grits, can be purchased and autographed at the dinner. While enjoying a screening of the award-winning short film by Stan Woodward, “It’s Grits,” guests will indulge in cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, including shrimp and grits pâté on brioche toast and stone ground cheese and sausage grits beignets. Additionally, the chefs have created a specialty 4-course menu for $60 per person (or be our winner) featuring Anson Mills Antebellum crabs and grits cake with arugula; St. Andre grits souffle with balsamic blackberries; pan roasted duck with coffee demi, wild mushroom grits gnocchi and quail egg; and finally a Riverview Farms stone ground grits cake.
Food 101 is a Sandy Springs neighborhood staple that offers Southern-inspired, cutting-edge comfort food. From the entrepreneurial team behind 101 Concepts (101 Steak, Meehan’s Public House, Cibo e Beve, Smoke Ring, Restaurant Paradis), it has earned a reputation for its trailblazing efforts and maintaining a perfect balance between comfort and innovation. Go to Perimeter North’s Facebook page, like and share the event to be entered to win tix to the September 21 dinner.
