Holy Grits Batman, Marigold Has A New Chef
Marigold Kitchen is getting a new chef and a new menu with some southern flair in the new year.
Erin Oâ€™Shea will be introduced as executive chef January 2nd replacing Michael Solomonov who will be focusing on his latest endeavor, Zahav.
O’Shea’s cuisine will be inspired by Southern ingredients but will also be modern with some subtle French influences. She will serve traditional Southern items like country ham from Edwards of Surry, VA, and grits from Byrd Mill, a small-scale producer that has been stone-grinding corn into grits in Ashland, VA, since 1740.
