If you missed seeing Hugh Acheson as a competitor on Top Chef you may still recognize him from being a judge for 4 seasons on Top Chef. Or you may have eaten at one of his many restaurants in Georgia like Five and Ten, The National, Empire State South or The Florence. In his new cookbook, The Broad Fork: Recipes for a Wide World of Vegetables and Fruits, Acheson guides readers to over 50 farmer's market favorites from apples to yacon (yes yacon) and has written 200 recipes for pickles, salads, roasts, purees, and sautes.  His recipes include Griddled Asparagus with Piperade, Poached Eggs and Grits  or Sea Scallops with Buttered Kraut and Pecan Brown Butter or Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Bok Choy, Curried Tomatoes and Avocado. According to Acheson, eating well shouldn't be a clash between deliciousness and dieting––it's all about moving fruits and vegetables closer to the middle of the plate. He is also the author of A New Turn in the South and Pick a PIckle cookbooks.
