Tasty Commitment to Fresh, Flavorful, Everyday Healthy Ingredients
Atlanta, GA (RestaurantNews.com) Building on its 23-year heritage, Atlanta Bread recently enhanced its menu through the launch of three new sandwiches, a soup, a salad, and a dessert. These new items, designed to inspire the palate, use fresh and clean ingredients enhanced by interesting flavors from around the world. “A sense of exploration, curiosity, and adventure, combined with the desire for simple ingredients and healthy options, is the driving force behind our direction. That — and the enjoyment of making something totally delicious.” said Executive Chef John Hutt.
“The new items reflect a taste, spice or ingredient I’ve come across while traveling, eating and working. For example, I love Soba noodles and Szechwan peppercorns, yet they are underutilized in the U.S. I combined these tastes with familiar ones like carrots and cucumbers to create our new Sesame Soba salad. In an increasingly confusing food system, it’s important to source ingredients that are simple and healthy.” added Hutt.
