In case you haven’t heard The Porter is participating in the Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival for the 2nd time! This is an amazing foodie event that benefits Georgia Organics! There are sooo many great restaurants involved and it’s at the stylish White Provisions Complex on Howell Mill Rd. All the restaurants work with a local organic farmer to make amazing tomato themed dishes and there are also mixologists with tomato themed cocktails! It is a great time for everyone! You can buys your tickets here:
We hope to see you there!
Sunday, July 21st!
We are currently planting on the farm for the winter harvest! We have just put into the ground: radishes, arugula, kale, carrots, upcrest, tatsoi, red mustard and all kinds of lettuces! Yum! Sounds like the Porter has some delicious salads in it’s future!
One of the best things about living in the south is our wide use of delicious tomatoes. Currently 100% of the heirloom tomatoes at The Porter are from our garden in Inman Park! And we have made good use of them! We have made green tomato jam and we have The Porter’s BLT with garden basil mayo, and of course the mouth-watering tomato salad with tomato mousse!
Toe-may-toe or toe-mah-toe… either way, you’ll want to get your fill of these gems while they’re in season.
Fall is in the air and scuppernongs are in season! These delicious thick-skinned green grape like fruits, are sweet and fragrant. Though we are getting a handful from The Porter’s Garden, we are mostly getting our suppernongs from Farmer Jeff just outside Atlanta. Currently they are featured on our house smoked trout sandwich and in an arugula salad.
Stop by to enjoy this rare treat before it is gone for the year!
