Susie Rachele On Buttermilk Kitchen’s Breakfast Special: Smoked Salmon Benedict


Susie Rachele On Buttermilk Kitchen’s Breakfast Special: Smoked Salmon Benedict

Buttermilk Kitchen General Manager Susie Rachele is delighted to share another breakfast special from Chef Suzanne Vizethann—smoked salmon Benedict. No doubt Eggs Benedict are a favorite of many breakfast lovers, comprising classic morning staples like English muffins and bacon in one heavenly plate. But getting that tricky hollandaise sauce right requires superior culinary technique, which is why cooking this traditional American dish is best left in the hands of the skilled and experienced. Chef Suzanne however goes above and beyond with her rendition of Eggs Benedict, recreating it with the very best ingredients that can be sourced in Atlanta.

Starting with one of the main ingredients, the eggs, Buttermilk Kitchen is proud to feature White Oak Pastures’ free-range chicken eggs in their smoked salmon Benedict. All of the chickens at White Oak Pastures are free to roam on pastures so the eggs they produce noticeably taste different and better. According to White Oak Pastures, each egg from their farm is hand selected. This commitment to sustainable land stewardship and humane animal treatment has also been ongoing for more than 150 years or 5 generations, producing some of the finest eggs in Atlanta.

Apart from delicious pasture raised eggs, Buttermilk Kitchen’s smoked salmon Benedict also uses house focaccia instead of the usual English muffins, and smoked salmon to replace the bacon. To top it off is a hollandaise sauce made with Sriracha, a type of hot sauce or chili paste—who would have thought that Sriracha could add a delicious kick to this American breakfast dish? The ending result of these seemingly incompatible ingredients is something that can only be tasted to be truly understood.

Buttermilk Kitchen General Manager Susie Rachele is happy to share another distinction conferred recently to Buttermilk Kitchen by an Atlanta local. Jessica Camerata of My Style Vita, one of the top fashion blogs based in Atlanta, wrote a lovely review of why Buttermilk Kitchen is indeed one of the best brunch spots around.

Susie Rachele on First-time BK Guests: Get the Chicken Biscuit!

Susie Rachele on First-time BK Guests: Get the Chicken Biscuit!

Buttermilk Kitchen is a popular restaurant in Atlanta, GA mainly because of three key ingredients: good food, good service, and a warm, welcoming ambiance. When you present these three ingredients to your diners, you’re generally encouraging them to keep coming back! Hi, this is Susie Rachele. This post is for foodies who have yet to visit Buttermilk Kitchen.

Whenever I come across old acquaintances who know that I am a part of the BK family, I’m always asked, “what’s good to have at Buttermilk Kitchen?” To be honest, answering this question isn’t as simple as naming one or two dishes or items on the menu that are a must-try because, all biases aside, everything we serve at BK is really good!

But for all intents and purposes, I usually answer the question with, Chicken Biscuit! As a matter of fact, ask anyone who’s been to Buttermilk Kitchen and you will most likely get the same answer. So for those of you who haven’t been to BK yet, and are wondering what to get when you do visit, our signature Chicken Biscuit is a good introduction to what we are all about!

The Chicken Biscuit is made with fried chicken breast on a biscuit with homemade red pepper jelly, and served with pimiento cheese grits and pickles on the side. This is served during breakfast hours from Tuesday through Sunday, from 8:00 am to 11:00 am only so you better be at the doors by 8am because the lines get long pretty quickly.

If, by chance, you missed the weekday breakfast hours for the famous biscuit, you can still get it during our weekend brunch (Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am to 3:00 pm), and it’s available until closing time!

Please stay tuned for more Buttermilk Kitchen updates from me, Susie Rachele. Thanks for stopping by!

Susie Rachele Talks About Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Friend Chicken Dinner

Susie Rachele Talks About Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Friend Chicken Dinner

Once a month, Buttermilk Kitchen closes its doors to the public only to open them to a limited number of guests who will be treated to a special locavore dining experience. This is Susie Rachele, General Manager of this locavore restaurant in Atlanta, and our Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners every month give a whole new meaning to the farm-to-table concept.

As a whole, Buttermilk Kitchen is run on a farm-to-table concept on a day to day basis, sourcing fresh local ingredients like eggs, milk, and bacon, but what makes our Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners different is the fact that we put together an entirely new menu each month for this event based on seasonality and creativity. That means each month, there is little to no chance that two meals will ever be exactly the same. As the culinary team of Buttermilk Kitchen put their heads together to come up with a menu that’s representative of what the very best of their culinary abilities can muster, and what Mother Nature has provided, it’s no wonder then that our monthly Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners sell like hotcakes (speaking of hotcakes, Buttermilk Kitchen’s fluffy buttermilk pancakes remain a popular item on the menu!).

For those who haven’t heard about our much-anticipated Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner event, it’s essentially a four-course meal with timed courses. The fun part is that the dishes aren’t revealed until the night of the event. As you may have guessed, there is limited seating and we always expect it to sell out.

At Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners, you are encouraged to bring your own beer or wine; there is no cork fee. The four-course meal is finely orchestrated so needless to say, we expect our guests to arrive on time so as not to delay everyone’s experience.

If there’s anything you want to ask about Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners, please feel free to ask me, Susie Rachele.

Enjoy a Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner

Four Special Courses at Buttermilk Kitchen

For all culinary fans in the Atlanta, Georgia area, or visitors who enjoy restaurants that revel in the art of fine preparation and cooking, nothing can top the event that happens but once per month at Buttermilk Kitchen.

The clever title of Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner belies the planning and skills that lie behind this very special event. First off, it is a one-time seating at 7 pm, with four timed courses that are prepared by chef Suzanne Vizethann and her incredibly talented and devoted team. However, knowing what time it begins is just about the only thing that does not change.

For instance, notification announcing the date of the month that the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner will be happening stays under wraps until the latest possible time. This keeps loyal and fanatical patrons on their toes with their phones within immediate reach at all times so when the special day is finally announced, they can get on the very popular and short list of attendees for the restaurant event of the month in Atlanta.

Next, one would think that because this is called the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner each month that it must basically be a really good recipe that never changes. Well, the one who would think that needs to rethink that idea. For instance, their June FFCD (as the in crowd likes to call the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner) was themed as “Fiesta Like There’s No Manana” and consisted of a first course of guacamole and salsa, which was followed by a street corn salad. The third course was fried chicken mole, and the meal finished off with tres leche cake, consisting of glazed fruit, cinnamon, and whipped cream.

As you can see, each Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner event is a, well, event! If you want to find out how to make the next FFCD, check out their website at Buttermilk Kitchen for more information. Or you can call general manager, Susie Rachele, at 678-732-3274 to ask any other questions you may have.

Susie Rachele Shares the Stories of Buttermilk Kitchen

Susie Rachele Shares the Stories of Buttermilk Kitchen’s Vendors

This is Susie Rachele, General Manager of Buttermilk Kitchen, a casual breakfast and lunch concept by Chef Suzanne Vizethann, and I’m here to talk about what makes Buttermilk Kitchen different from other top restaurants in Atlanta.

On top of the list of reasons why Buttermilk Kitchen is celebrated by foodies and critics alike is that Buttermilk Kitchen is a locavore restaurant. This means we source our ingredients locally, thereby supporting the local economy and our own food community. We know where our ingredients come from and how they are produced; this in itself gives us an advantage serving our customers, as we’re not only able to serve them high-quality food, but we’re also able to tell them the story of these local businesses.

One special story that Buttermilk Kitchen has helped write is the mother-and-son team of Julia Mahood and Noah Macey. Noah used to work for Buttermilk Kitchen during the summers but little did we know that he is actually the youngest Master Beekeeper in Georgia. Their honey is produced by bees that have never been treated with chemicals, whether natural or artificial, and have never been fed sugar water.

The result is exquisite, and many of Buttermilk Kitchen’s customers will attest to the superiority of this honey. If you would like to have a taste of this delicious honey, you can order our Bowl of Granola which is made from our house roasted granola, organic berries, farm milk or organic Treehouse Milk almond milk, Atlanta Fresh yogurt, and of course, our local honey.

This is but one story Buttermilk Kitchen has helped write. Since our restaurant opened in 2012, we have since written more stories; stories starring Rev Coffee Roasters, Holeman and Finch, White Oak Pastures, Southern Swiss Dairy, Springer Mountain Farms, Benton’s Country Hams, and many more.

If you’d like to learn about these stories, visit us at Buttermilk Kitchen and feel free to look for me, Susie Rachele. I’d love to tell you about them.



Finding Love in the Buttermilk Kitchen

Sometimes love happens in the most unusual places. For new diners at Buttermilk Kitchen, love often happens with the first bite of a delicious dish prepared by chef and owner Suzanne Vizethann. Whether it is a stack of buttermilk pancakes for breakfast, a meatloaf burger for lunch, or an angel food cake French toast for brunch, this Atlanta dining discovery seems to have patrons falling in love with each meal that they experience at Buttermilk Kitchen.

Chef Vizethann, along with her two team members, Lervi Arcos (Chef de Cuisine) and Elliot Smith (Pastry Chef), adheres to her mission of delivering the freshest ingredients from scratch, while taking advantage of the best and most ethical food producers from her beautiful state of Georgia as well as some neighboring states. The benefit to the many customers of Buttermilk Kitchen is that they are able to enjoy some of the best quality foods that have been lovingly prepared by professional hands in a peanut free environment.

This unique eatery, which is open for breakfast from Tuesday through Saturday, lunch from Tuesday through Friday, and brunch on both days of the weekend, has made its mark because of the value that each staff member places upon creating a work atmosphere that is upbeat, energetic, and dedicated to meeting the needs and wants of their vast list of loyal and passionate diners. Backed by General Manager Susie Rachele, and staffed with a crew that brings a zest and verve to their tasks, everything about this business appears to be well conceived and properly administered.

Perhaps the greatest highlight of each month is their special fried chicken dinner that is offered just once a month and is sold out quickly each time. Guests have learned to stay connected with Buttermilk Kitchen both through their clever and entertaining newsletter and their Facebook page, which keeps their dining customers current about upcoming events such as their once-per-month dinner event.

If you have been looking for love without success, perhaps it is time to go to a place where everyone falls in love: Buttermilk Kitchen!
