Chef Demo with Josh Hopkins
of Empire State South
10:00 a.m. on 7/11
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Josh Hopkins has been the Executive Chef at Empire State South since the summer of 2014. He was raised in Atlanta, where he learned how to cook from the women in his family and by watching cooking shows like "Wok with Yan." Chef Hopkins' philosophy is simple, "cook good, local food." In lieu of culinary school, Hopkins started his career with a formal apprenticeship for French Master Chef Christian Chemin. He's since worked in many acclaimed restaurants throughout the Southeast. In Charleston, he cooked at Slightly North of Broad and High Cotton. Returning to Atlanta, he worked as the chef de cuisine of Bacchanalia and at Abattoir, where he served as chef and co-owner. He next took the lead at STG Trattoria before making the move to Empire State South. In his free time, Josh enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristine, and their two dogs, playing frisbee golf and cooking with family.
