Chef Demo with Linton Hopkins
Chef Demos are sponsored by
We’re kicking off this season of chef demos in style as we welcome none other than our fearless founder, genius Chef Linton Hopkins of Restaurant Eugene. What’s new since he visited with us last year? Oh, not much. Just a James Beard Award for Best Chef Southeast. Plus, world burger domination (ok, he’s launched the H&F burger at Turner Field, but world domination has to start somewhere). For more on Chef Hopkins, check here. And stop on by the chef demo tent a little early this Saturday—our founder has quite a following.
