Guess who’s opening a NEW restaurant!

Greetings all,

I’m happy to announce that I will be apart of a new restaurant in Atlanta called Food Therapy. This Mediterranean concept will feature a full bar, buffet lunch and full menu for dinner. Food Therapy s menu is filled with fresh from scratch dishes that will make you think your on a FLAVOR EXCURSION through the Mediterranean. Those of you who know me know that this is not my first time with this cuisine. I’ve successfully executed Spanish (Eclipse di Luna) and French (Atmosphere Bistro) menus and am quite excited about this venture.

With owner and friend Tamar Telahun running the front of the house and myself manning the kitchen I’m confident this will be a successful venture. Look forward to seeing all of my fans and friend there soon.

Fried whole tilapia.

Whole fish is my favorite!

Like most meats cooked on the bone, this technique tends to provide more flavor and secures moisture.

The only drawback is all the bones you have to deal with.

Using an oil with a high smoke point such as peanut oil allows you to get the oil hotter and sear in the juices.

This wild tilapia was seasoned with a puree of cilantro, garlic and ginger, then finished with a tomato vinaigrette.
