Executive Chef Nicholas Walker recently had the honor of taking his culinary offerings into a private home for a very unique dinner party. Chef Walker was “auctioned” in August as part of Safepath Children’s Advocacy Center’s Good Eatin’ Great Cause Culinary Tour, held here at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Tom and Linda Palmer were the high bidders for an in-home chef’s table by Chef Walker.

On the menu: Celery Soup with Cornbread Crouton and Crispy Celery; Pickled Shrimp, Watercress, Parsnip, Red Onion Jam and Breakfast Radish; Seared Salmon, Buttered Hazelnuts, Swiss Chard, Sweet Potato, Blood Orange and Sorghum Vinaigrette; Asher Blue Cheese, Cranberry Ginger Compote and Homemade Smoked Sea Salt Pecan Cracker; and Chevre Honey Cake with Almond Lace Cookies, Persevered Figs and Creme Fraiche.
