Buy This: Two fruits that might be new to you, plus an exotic chutney

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

A few years ago none of us knew an acai berry from a goji berry. But these days tropical fruits are taking over our grocer’s shelves. We sampled two of the newest for you – jackfruit and monk fruit – and we’ve also got a delicious chutney that comes to us by way of South Africa.

Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit

Native to Southeast Asia, a fresh jackfruit is big (it can weigh up to 80 pounds) and spiky and has an odd but pleasant aroma. The flavor of ripe jackfruit has been described as like mangoes, bananas and pineapple. If you’d ...

Bon Ton’s Instagram account is wonderfully weird

A playful neon sign inside Bon TonPhotograph by Caroline C. Kilgore Since Bon Ton came onto the Midtown scene in February with its cotton candy-lavender exterior, a few things have been clear: The restaurant’s menu is inspired by New Orleans; its cocktails (Hurricanes, Sazeracs on tap), masterminded by Eric Simpkins, are built to party; and its vibe is funky. Nowhere is that unconventional attitude more apparent than on Bon Ton’s Instagram feed, which features a stream of video spoofs—and no typical overhead shots of platters heaping with professionally styled food—all with the hashtag #bontonaf. There’s a Herzog-esque love letter to ...

The reason goes beyond its antique mirrors and tufted leather banquettes; it’s also the morning-to-night menu that any proper European brasserie should offer. Plus steaks—chef Shaun Doty hails from Oklahoma, after all—hand-cut and cooked in cast iron. Doty became superstar chef Gunter Seeger’s right hand in the kitchen of the Dining Room in the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, and grew by leaps and bounds after letting loose on his own at the much-missed Shaun’s in Inman ...

The end of the peach season is nigh, Atlanta, and it wasn’t the best of years for the state fruit. It’s estimated Georgia farmers lost 80% of their peaches after a warmer than average winter followed by a deep freeze in March killed off the blooms of prematurely flowering trees. This could equal a loss of nearly $50 million dollars when the final numbers are tallied later this summer.

Chefs and bartenders around the metro area have taken the loss to heart and have been buying up ...

It may seem odd to be talking about low-ABV (alcohol-by-volume) cocktails during the world’s largest booze conference. This year’s Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans has crowned the martini its king and seminar subjects include everything from umami flavor in drinks to rare vintage spirits to 400 years of drinking on the high seas. But building a better low-ABV cocktail or session cocktail is on the minds of many of the nearly 15,000 bartenders who’ve converged on the Crescent City for the annual industry conference.
