Augusta Eats Local at Southern Scratch

Augusta Eats Local at Southern Scratch

Feb 20, 2016 | Augusta Eats Local, Campaigns

WASHINGTON, GEORGIA, WROTE THE BOOK ON HOSPITALITY, and Southern Scratch is at the heart of it.

Augusta EATS LOCAL committee members Amy and Patrick Sutter attended a romantic, get-away, couples cooking class at this true farm-to-table establishment, and here is what they found:

“Where do I even start with this fantastic evening of fabulous food and wonderful people? Kathryn Filipiak and her husband, Reid, created an amazing meal using locally sourced ingredients for almost every part! We had venison that Reid had hunted on their property; grits from Amber’s Grain in Crawfordville, sweet potatoes from Lazy Willow Farm, hydroponic lettuce and tomatoes from Setter Gardens in Washington, green tomatoes from a backyard grower, and local peaches (maybe from Watsonia Farms?) frozen in July).

Kathryn demonstrated how to make biscuits (use the food processor!) and roast venison, while Reid shared his secret for making grits (don’t measure anything, lol). They showed us how using fresh, local ingredients create the best tasting meals, and how eating cleanly makes you feel good!”

Of course it’s an honor to award our window decal to this full-of-love eatery.
