Everybody can’t throw down in the kitchen and that’s just a fact that many of us must live with everyday, but when you come across those gifted ones who can, it must be nice. We’d like to introduce you to a gentlemen who goes by the name Arian Poe A.K.A. “Chef Poe” who I say has gifted hands. I say this because I had the honor of having him as our chef at our 1st Annual Settle Free Mixer which you’ll hear all about in another post and all I can say is WOW!! His food was outstanding! Not only is he a Gourmet Chef but he’s a family man, a food Educator….. that’s right he gives cooking classes and he’s the creator of his very own unique blend of seasonings and spices in which he swears by when preparing his fabulous dishes. So just Who is Chef Poe? We’ll let him tell you!
ABOUT Chef ArianPoe…. “I was born an artist… I have early memories of my art being so good that my mother would tell her friends that I traced my drawings from comic books. Always in the kitchen with my talented family of down-home cooks, I remember getting recipes from my grandmother and trying them out in my mother’s kitchen. I was never content with doing what they said, I’d immediately start to think about how I could turn these time-tested recipes into something outrageous and artistic… and I have been doing that ever since!”
Chef ArianPoe, affectionately known as “The Everyday Gourmet,” has been honing his craft for that last 20 years. A self-taught chef who (while getting his degree in Graphic Design, snuck into the Culinary Arts classes, because that’s where all the girls were), specializes in taking ordinary ingredients and creating extraordinary cuisine. He is a well sought-after caterer, gourmet personal chef and the lead Chef in the often sold-out and wait-listed Four Season Pop-ups! Many line up for the release of the new iPhone, but it is culinary pandemonium when his “grab-and-go” salsa and spinach dips are on sale. Chef ArianPoe sees cooking as a true and immediate art form. “Flavor and design sets chefs apart; I see my food as a gift to the palate, one that constantly changes! There is nothing more rewarding than to hear people say that I’ve ruined their expectations at their favorite restaurants or that when they see me they can remember how my food tasted. I’m constantly thinking of how I can bring more flavors and more “WOW” to the next meal.”
And WOW is just what he brought to our latest event and what he continues to bring. His food is presented beautifully and it tastes exactly the way that it looks…Beautiful! Chef Poe is definitely a need to know chef that we highly recommend for all your catering needs. Look at these gorgeous photos below of his work.
If you are in the Atlanta area, you can catch Chef Poe at his upcoming annual event “Four Seasons Summer Barbecue.” on August 5th. See details below.
