|Chef David Larkworthy's Philosophy|
"I believe fresh, natural food tastes better. I believe in supporting our local organic farmers and those practicing sustainable agriculture. I believe balance in life, nature and food is difficult and worth the effort. I like to pay homage to the great dishes and styles of cooking that have evolved since the beginning of time and put our own little spin on them. I want the 5 Seasons to be a positive force in the lives of the people who become involved with it and improve their lives as a result." - Chef Dave Larkworthy
Over his youth and adult life, David developed an affinity for fine food preparation, especially of the seasonally fresh, organic kind. His father, Chef John Larkworthy, was among the early organic pioneers in the ‘70s. Long before popular interest in “organics” became fashionable, David worked side-by-side with his dad at his restaurant in Connecticut. They developed the principles and techniques that Dave uses today. Later David would study, and cook, in Italy.
"By volume, David Larkworthy uses more locally grown produce than any other chef in Atlanta. As chef and co-owner of the 5 Seasons Brewing Company, Larkworthy is a bit of an anomaly. His high-volume restaurant serves up to 1,000 people a day, and his food is affordable and accessible. Yet Larkworthy cares just as much as the city's fine-dining chefs about ingredients and quality, and the survival of local farmers." - Creative Loafing
