Derek Dollar and Doug Turbush Selected for Georgia Restaurant Association's Georgia Grown Executive Chef Program

Derek Dollar of Milton's Cuisine & Cocktails and The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill and Doug Turbush of Seed Restaurant & Bar, Stem Wine Bar and new Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar have been selected for the Georgia Grown Executive Chef Program by the Georgia Restaurant Association (GRA) and the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA). GDA Commissioner Gary S. Black and GRA CEO Karen Bremer announced the 2016 class of five chefs on February 17 at GRA's eighth annual Taste of Georgia Legislative Reception at the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot. These chefs bring incredible experience and unique talents to the table and are already supportive of Georgia products, according to Bremer. As part of the Georgia Grown program, Dollar and Turbush will, even more so, foster relationships with farmers to strengthen ties between Georgia farmers, chefs, restaurants and consumers.
