Anne Quatrano is widely held to be one of the country’s greatest chefs. Her meticulous attention to detail dovetails seamlessly with her devotion to freshness, flavor and simplicity. Anne has – since her earliest days – prided herself in using locally grown seasonal and organic produce, much of which is from her own organic gardens. Together with her husband, award-winning chef Clifford Harrison, she operates four of Atlanta, GA’s most celebrated restaurants – Bacchanalia, Floataway Café and Little Bacch as well as a cook’s market, Star Provisions.
In the fall of 2015, Anne opened W. H. Stiles Fish Camp (aka Dub’s) offering fresh seafood, respectfully prepared and reasonably priced in Ponce City Market Central Food Hall. In 2010, Quatrano launched Sunday Supper South, an annual event in Atlanta bringing together lauded chefs from across the South to prepare a family-style supper as a fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship fund.
In 2013, Anne and Clifford hosted the first annual New South Family Supper, inviting the South’s most innovative chefs to Atlanta to participate in this benefit for Southern Foodways Alliance. Anne has been featured on CNN’s “On The Menu” and “Hot Chefs,” GPTV’s “Cooking for the Holidays,” Food Network’s “Great Chefs” and “Ultimate Kitchens,” CNN’s “Tips from the Top” and “Great Cities” on the Discovery Channel.
