Amanda Plumb with special guests at Eagle Eye Books
Thursday, July 22
7:00 - 8:00pm

Amanda Plumb will be speaking about her book Unique Eats and Eateries of Atlanta.  We will host a cooking demo with Decatur Farmer's Market and have samples promoting the Atlanta farming community.  This will be our first in-store event so if you are unvaccinated we ask that you wear a mask.

While many of Atlanta’s world famous southern restaurants boast the best fried chicken recipe, its burgeoning global identity has brought a breadth to its food scene like never before. You’ll find peppercorn-crusted kangaroo from Down Under all the way to street food from Malaysia, Mexico, and Venezuela. In Unique Eats: Atlanta you’ll discover the common ingredient uniting these diverse and innovative restaurants—the people who pour their heart and soul into the dishes they create. Curated in this guide are their stories of family, failure, and reinvention. Learn how a K-Pop star ended up running a BBQ joint in Georgia or how a college professor sold burritos out of a van to make ends meet. Take a peek behind the scenes at the making of fresh bagels that rival any in New York City or figure out why the Silver Skillet’s bathrooms are in the kitchen. Don’t miss the heartfelt stories of the southern mainstays, some of which have been integral in launching the careers of artists, musicians, and Civil Rights heroes. Local author and underground restaurant host Amanda Plumb provides pro-tips on the meals, the menus, and the must-tries throughout the city. Let the “Gate City of the South” be your gateway to a most unique, southern and international culinary experience.
