The Georgia Grown Executive Chef Program offers Georgia-based chefs the platform to share their commitment to sustainability and buying local—tenets of Georgia Grown’s mission—throughout the State of Georgia.
Executive Chef Ahmad Nourzad said, “It’s a great honor to represent Georgia Grown, especially in the company of great chefs like Linton, David, and Jennifer. I’m excited about coming into this already aligned with Georgia Grown’s mission. In fact, we launched a ‘farm-to-party’ offering for our clients last year that focuses on seasonal, local ingredients.”
Chef Ahmad will create awareness of the benefits of buying local thus promoting the relationships between Georgia farmers and local chefs, as well as consumers. Chef Ahmad will be actively promoting Georgia Grown throughout the year at various events and online.
General Manager Patrick Cuccaro said, “When we launched our Legacy Green program in 2009, which includes a ‘source local’ aspect, Chef Ahmad immediately and fully embraced the initiative. Today, he continues to educate our culinary team and our clients on the benefits of buying local. We’re proud to have such an enlightened executive chef at Affairs to Remember, and now representing Georgia Grown.”
