Event Chefs

Executive Chef Zeb Stevenson

An Indiana native, Zeb Stevenson cooks with a balance of cerebral curiosity and blue-collar work ethic. Focused on innovation with a solid grounding in the classics, Stevenson straddles the line between good taste and a playful push on boundaries. Zeb started his career not in a classroom but rather in the dish room of a diner. It was there that he fell in love with the sense of adventure and camaraderie that comes in the professional kitchen.

After moving to Atlanta, Zeb earned a position as Sous Chef at the acclaimed Roswell restaurant Dick & Harry's. Under the watchful eye of his mentor Harold Marmulstein, he learned the finer points of butchery, sauce work, charcuterie, and the beauty of classic techniques. Then he served as Executive Sous Chef at Spice Market. In 2009, he opened Livingston as Chef de Cuisine and quickly took the reigns as Executive Chef. At Livingston, Zeb quickly emerged as a mentor and creative "tour de force." His preoccupation with learning elemental cooking developed into a kitchen culture that rewards free thinking and exchange of ideas.

In 2012, Chef Stevenson played a key role in the development and opening of Proof and Provision (the Georgian Terrace's subterranean cocktail bar), and competed and won on Food Network's "Chopped." Zeb is known for his sense of whimsy and spontaneity that he brings to every project and restaurant.

Today, Chef Stevenson is making his stamp on PARISH. The chef-lead program is bringing the spirit and life of PARISH back into Inman Park with a more neighborhood feel.

He is a hobby coffee roaster, a visual artist, and an endurance cyclist. In addition to that, he can be found playing bass in his all-chefband or spending a quiet night at home with his Pit Bull puppy Oliver.

BesMaid Garden Essentials

A Farm Story by Gardener Bobby Britt.

I have lived in Decatur all of my life. My dad sold vegetables from the family garden off the back of his pickup truck for years. As kids we always helped dad. By 16, I started taking gardening more seriously. I was pretty excited about the new rototiller. Ever since then I grew the size of that family garden until it got to be 1/4 acre, then 1/2 acre, then 1 acre….and in 2011 it's almost 3 acres.

In 2005, BesMaid Garden Essentials became my full-time career. The name came from an ice cream business where my father worked for almost 20 years.

All the fertilizers used on the farm are Organic Materials Research Institute (OMRI) approved. I follow standard organic practices. I use certified organic fish emulsion and seaweed for fertilizer. I maintain safe, sustainable farming practices. In addition to the compost I make on the property, I also supplement with animal manure from local farms.

I regularly use cover crops for "green manure" such as rye as a winter cover crop and Hairy Vetch, buckwheat, soy beans, and Sudan grass as summer cover crops. Local restaurants have buying my fresh seasonal produce for the last 5 years. I love my farm and my customers love the produce. I'm still building my field of dreams!
