Meet Ed Harris of Chef Life Consulting in Buckhead

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ed Harris.

Ed Harris was the winner of the Food Network’s CHOPPED “Turbot Powered” Season Four & Iron Chef International. He also appeared as a chef on 24-Hour Restaurant Battle and his team won. His education from the Art Institute of New York City and past experiences allow him to specialize in a variety of cuisine styles. New York City Chef, Ed Harris’ unending passion for cuisine began in the kitchen many years ago. Over the past decade, he has been heavily involved in several aspects of the food industry. From private events and various celebrity gatherings to consulting on menu items and restaurant concepts, Harris’ knowledge of the culinary world comes from an array of experiences. He’s taken skills from positions as an Executive Chef, Tournant, Executive Sous Chef, Dim Sum Chef, Expediter, and Saucier, and applied them to his current role as a Consultant Chef. It is that eclectic background that allows him to play an active role in the planning, supervision and creative aspects involved in the food industry.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road leaving my clientele and connections in New York City and moving to Atlanta. Building a following and clientele is not something that happens overnight. I figured out that I needed to do food tasting, events, and parties for free for a while. This way I got to introduce Atlanta to my company and my food. Now the job offers keep coming.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Chef Life Consulting – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.

Our consulting service encompasses beautifully designed events & Pop Up Experiences, private in-home dining, flavor development, menu design, training & recipe development just to name a few.

I wear many hats, I am the CFO of a hair business with my wife Jane called “The Virgin Hair Fantasy” I also consult on projects for different events and private gatherings, I design and create amazing denim aprons and I’m working on my new vegan cookbook.

I specialize in Asian cuisine.

I’m known for really good vegan, vegetarian food and dumplings. People say I’m the only one that can make them love and eat mushrooms.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
It’s a melting pot, most people say hi and smile. We get all four seasons and the weather is amazing, tons of trees and parks.
