Last Wednesday, April 21, SOHO was thrilled to join the Circus of Flavor. The annual event, featuring 25 top Atlanta chefs, raised funds for the American Liver Foundation. For those interested in more details of the spectatcular evening, I’ve recapped SOHO’s culinary creations below. Most importantly, there’s still a chance to participate in the Circus of Flavor silent auction and help a great cause. Click here to bid on items (bidding closes at 5:00pm on Friday, April 30).
SOHO Executive Chef Joe Ahn and Sous Chef Jeff Haegar, created an unforgettable dining experience for ten guests during the Circus of Flavor event. In addition to great food, guests enjoyed a table decorated with the circus-themed artwork of Emmy Dudley, Laura Bowman, Priscilla Nelson and Cheryl Burgess.
Chef Joe began his feast with taste of SOHO “popcorn” calamari with a ginger soy glaze. Next, guests enjoyed a fresh mozzarella balloon with shaved prosciutto de parma and aged balsamic drizzle.
Chef Joe then served up a seared scallop with micro greens, caramelized plantains, and a raspberry vinaigrette. The main course was a delicious blackberry stuffed filet topped with foie gras, and served with fingerling potatoes and tri-color cauliflower. Finally, the meal ended with a slice of candy apple spice cake and homespun cotton candy.
The Circus of Flavor was full of delicious food, great wine, and amazing company. The team at SOHO is already looking forward to next year's event!
