Vidalia Onion Dinner: A Sweet Success

all photos by George Sanchez

Food lovers across Georgia and the South enjoyed taking part in Atlanta Food & Wine Festival this past month!  Our own Vidalia Onion Dinner was a sweet success as part of the festival, too.  We were joined by the talented duo of Jeffrey Buben of Vidalia in DC, and Daniel Lindley of St. John's and Meeting Place in Chattanooga and created a delicious dinner devoted to the Vidalia Onion.

If you weren’t able to join us, fear not!  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a wonderful article about the special qualities of Vidalia Onions that featured our own Chef Gerry Klaskala last month – and it included quite a few of his delicious recipes featuring Georgia’s sweet onion crop.
