BUCKHEAD – There’s a new chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead; Franck Steigerwalk has taken helm in the kitchen and is eager to incorporate ingredients from Atlanta’s farmers markets and specialty shops. “To fill my refrigerator at home takes a whole day in my car,” Steigerwald said in a press release. “I drive to the place for the best French cheese, then go to the place for the freshest fish on the day the shipment is received, then to the finest vegetables and meats and on and on until I have it all and I’m excited to go home and cook.” [EaterWire]
