Chef Scott Simon of Carson Kitchen in downtown Alpharetta included his recipe for a warm spinach salad.
“Our idea is to take a familiar food and add a twist,” Simon said. “We take the same concept and make it more vibrant with a little added sweetness and flavor with maple-sage vinaigrette, Granny Smith apples and smoked almonds.”
Carson Kitchen has been closed, but will begin to reopen this week offering curbside pickup, with eat-in dining to follow soon, Simon said.
“Our idea of Carson is to be a part of the community and give back,” he said. “We love the idea of doing something great for these two charities with these chefs.”
To receive a digital copy of the cookbook, a minimum of $25 donations must be made online at North Fulton Community Charities or The Place of Forsyth. Book purchasers then need to email proof of the donation, which could be a screenshot image, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“All of our restaurants at Alpharetta City Center are owned by local metro Atlanta residents who understand the importance of supporting small businesses and nonprofit organizations who give back to the community,” property manager Ashley Majors said in a statement. “We are so proud to be a part of this heartfelt initiative alongside Avalon and Halcyon, and look forward to heating things up in the kitchen.”
