Rumors of Bacchanalia and Star Provisions Closing

I hope it's not true - especially SP - it's a regular lunch option for me. I was there earlier this week to pick up a shrimp po boy and noticed the farm stand area was closed and looked empty. I hope it was just due to the rainy day or snowmaggedon impacting the availability of fresh produce.

Store bought Latkes?

Goldberg's wanted $1/latke and I thought that was wayyyyyyy too expensive. I ended up buying Simply Potatoes from Publix - basically, pre-prepped shredded potatoes and followed this recipe on epicurious: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo.... A lot of the user comments recommended adding an extra egg and flour and I found it necessary to hold the potatoes together. I also seasoned my latkes to add more flavor to this component. My latkes topped with smoked salmon and creme fraiche were a hit. My guests compared them to the ones served at Canoe!

Having said that, it was wayyyyyyyyyy too much trouble. I should've just bought the latkes or ditched the dish altogether.

Went to TJ's today and examined their frozen latkes...they are much too thick for what I'm trying to do. Will keep my eyes peeled at Fresh market and Whole Foods.

ATL Chowhounds - where are you spending New Years Eve?

I have no idea and neither does anyone in my circle of friends.

Love 4th and Swift and although I'll take savory over sweet 20 out of 21 days, have the dessert. I had some chocolate mousse with potato chips dessert that was on the menu earlier this year and it is my new gold standard for how delicious a dessert can be.

Enjoy!

Hi All,

I'm contemplating a cocktail party next week and I want to make it as stress-free as possible. I recently had a dish that was a mini-latke topped with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, and capers. I want to recreate this for my party, but I've never made latkes before -- and I'm not a fan of frying as the oil has an affinity for my skin :|. Can someone recommend a place intown where I could purchase tasty, premade latkes?

Thanks!
