A special selection of locally sourced ingredients, prepared with a southern flair. Emma’s is a local award winning restaurant. Being that this restaurant was the beginning of my career, it was only right to showcase classic dishes ignited my passion.
Wow! I am blown away by our experience with Chef Patrick White and Food Fire + Knives! This was my first time working with both and I am thoroughly impressed.
From the start, the ease at booking and selecting our menu was awesome. It was simple to ask all of my questions through Food Fire + Knives and then shortly after that, I spoke with Chef Patrick directly to personalize our experience. We were having a surprise birthday dinner in a vacation rental including several family members with dietary restrictions as well as four small kids. Naturally, I had a lot of questions for Chef Patrick and he was so patient and professional to plan the event with. I was able to customize our dinner and felt very taken care of.
Chef Patrick along with his partner, who happens to be his lovely wife, were very organized. They confirmed all details with me the day before our event and the day of, and the lines of communication were always open if I had questions. They arrived completely prepared with everything needed for our 5 course dining experience right down to plates and knives!
Chef Patrick and his wife are delightful and quickly became a part of the party. As the guests sipped cocktails and opened presents, Chef and his wife prepped food in the kitchen. The tone was set for a relaxed and beautiful evening right down to the jazz soundtrack they provided.
Now on to the food! OMG the food!! We selected dishes from the Ode to Emma’s menu and it was all perfection! Chef’s skills were on display and, to put it simply, it just all tasted really, really good. It was delicious, southern comfort food elevated to fine dining status. It was truly a 5-star experience, and we never had a to lift a finger. Everything was taken care of right down clean up.
I would highly recommend Chef Patrick White for your next private dinner party! We will absolutely be doing the same the next time we are down in Georgia!
First let me start by saying the food was the best food ever!!!! Chef Patrick was amazing. He called me prior to our dinners like weeks in advance and we talk about food allergies, the set up, location, the occasion, and everything about the dinner and how it will take place. He went above and beyond to make our night special. He had fresh flowers and candle light. Our location didn’t have a dinning room table or chairs, he even brought us a table and chairs with a tablecloth and chair coverings! It was beautiful. Now for the food he seated us and brought us every dish. He explained each dish to us and why the food was paired together and the flavor palates. The food was amazing and it was prepared right in the comfort of our home. Before and After the meal he cleaned and sanitized everything. I highly recommend Chef Patrick. Oh and did I say the food was amazing!!!! I think I did LOL! This was better than any crowded restaurant. You won’t be disappointed! Chef Patrick is very professional and polite. You will love it.
