Fall Comfort at this week’s Market
Don’t miss Saturday’s Chef Demo with
Stephen Herman of HAVEN – 10:00 am on 11/6
Chef Demos are sponsored by Whole Foods Market
Chef Stephen Herman fell in love with culinary comforts from an early age in his mother’s kitchen—her talent for baking inspired him to pursue a culinary career and the rest is history. A native of Knoxville, Tennessee, Herman traveled up the road to Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina, where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in culinary arts.
While at Johnson and Wales, Herman worked with renowned Chef Bob Waggoner at the prestigious Charleston Grill. Waggoner was so impressed with the passion and skill of Herman that he invited his mentee to cook in some of France’s finest restaurants. In France, Herman gained exceptional experience and great respect for the rich history of French food.
He returned to the States with a renewed passion and honed skills that were perfect for the next step in his career—traveling to Atlanta to work with one of the best chefs to grace our city— Chef Joël Antunes recognized Herman’s abilities and put him to work at JOËL, one of Atlanta’s most iconic French restaurants. Herman’s tenure there developed his focus on classic and modern French cooking even further.
His journey in Atlanta then led Chef Herman to HAVEN at its inception and he now guides its kitchen as executive chef. At HAVEN, he combines seasonal meats and produce with traditional southern ingredients to create a fresh, sophisticated version of comfort food. Herman sources ingredients from farmers and markets as way of guaranteeing guests the freshest produce. With great respect for changes in seasonal harvests, Herman changes the menu five times yearly.
Join us this Saturday when Chef Stephen Herman will bring the warmth of HAVEN’s welcoming atmosphere and good food to our tents at the Farmers Market!
