Pumped About Pure Pork Awesomeness

Atlanta chef and “Top Chef” alum Kevin Gillespie is pumped about pork. Kevin has dedicated his second cookbook, “Pure Pork Awesomeness: Totally Cookable Recipes From Around the World,” to all things swine. The book hits shelves on March 31 and he's inviting fans to come pig out with him on Sunday, March 29 for a special release party at his nationally recognized restaurant, Gunshow.

The party for “Pure Pork Awesomeness” takes place from 2 to 6 p.m. Admission includes a signed copy of the book, including a rare edition of the “lost” chapter, and an array of appetizing pork offerings, such as Korean barbecued pork bulgogi, Indianapolis-style fried pork loin sandwiches and buffalo pork “wings.” Guests will also enjoy drink specials, including local brews from SweetWater Brewing Company. Tickets are $50 and are available through Xorbia.

“Pure Pork Awesomeness,” the follow-up to Gillespie’s successful cookbook debut “Fire in My Belly.”

Brazilian Steakhouse to open in the heart of Buckhead

Brazilian steakhouse Chama Gaucha will open in the heart of Buckhead this spring.

Reintroducing a bygone era of Brazilian cowboys, who ended their days preparing dinner around a fire pit, Chama Gaucha embraces and elevates the cowboys’ fireside culture and rustic culinary traditions. With locations in Houston, San Antonio and Chicago, the Buckhead restaurant will be the fourth to open and the first in the Southeast.

Drawing inspiration from the menu’s Brazilian flavor and style, local design, construction and consulting agency Restaurant Consulting Group (RCG) transformed the restaurant into an upscale, yet comfortable space. An organic palate of tans and browns, uniquely designed fabric panels and gold textured ceilings yield an upscale yet comfortable dining experience.                                                                                                              
Chama Gaucha is located at 3365 Piedmont Road, NE, Suite 1350, Atlanta, GA 30305, and will open nightly for dinner and for lunch Sunday through Friday. Weekdays lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday dinner service will be offered from 4 to 10:30 p.m. and the restaurant will be open continuously from 1 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, serving both lunch and dinner. For more information, visit or call 404.842.0011.
