Primal: An Event For Chefs and Butchers Alike


Do you have tickets yet to Primal -- the event Atlanta foodies are buzzing about? Luckily for us...we do! And we're giving away two general admission tickets to the event that's going on this Saturday, November 21. Leave a comment about what chef or butcher you are most excited to see get their hands dirty at Primal and at 5 p.m. today we'll select two random winners. Please make sure you leave an email address when commenting so we can contact you! Need us to catch you up to speed on Primal? Here's the deal:

Atlanta area’s best and brightest stars of the new butchery movement appear at Primal, a celebration of early cooking's revival. Butchers will give a side-by-side demonstration on how to break down a complete pig, cow, goat and lamb into cuts of meat. Afterward, chefs will create and cook meaty creations over a hickory, applewood or almond wood flame for attendees. With an emphasis on heritage breeds and whole animal utilization, Primal is the antithesis of the factory farming exposed in films like Food, Inc., and a reminder that the best food is locally grown and prepared not by machines but human hands. Ten different family owned wineries make up the Oregon Wine Experience and fourteen different butchers and chefs get out the knives and slice raw flesh on Saturday, Nov. 21, at SweetWater Brewery.

Sweetwater Brewery is located at 195 Ottley Drive, Atlanta, Ga. Tickets are $55 for general admission(inclusive of wines, butcher demo, brew, meat tasting) and $100 for the VIP Experience @ 5:30PM(inclusive of reserve wines, Benton’s Bacon Bar, cheese, oysters and special brews). More information on Primal can be found here.

I'm dying to see Manny Vizcaino at work. I hear he's a meat artist and a fantastic teacher as well. And I'm with Sean. Visit Farm 255 whenever I'm in Athens and would love to see what those guys will do.

I agree with everyone re: Farm 255, but really, I'm looking forward to Gary Mennie - I have been a fan of his since his Canoe days. Overall, this is a great event that is truly honoring these animals by utilizing ALL of it. What a great thing for Atlantans to experience!
