Based in good ol’ Nashville, TN, Southern FATTY is the sweet creation started in January, 2014 by a guy named Phillip <waves>.
Professionally, I am a Research Biologist working in cancer research at a local University. Personally, I enjoy piano/music, photography, traveling, ice hockey (GO PREDS!), coffee.. coffee.. coffee.
I can vividly remember growing up wanting to be a Chef when I was ‘older’. Having then thought that would certainly be an eternity away, I would have tons of time to plan it out perfectly. I would create a restaurant. I spent countless hours creating blueprints, menus, franchisee agreements (seriously). My featured item began as the World’s Most Amazing Hotdog. A hotdog with shattered Lay’s potato chips on top. Amazing, eh? Perhaps a featured post for the site one day? Ehhhh… As my palate changed, and my business sense slightly improved, that idea warped into some interesting crêpe-based confections that I was certain would change people’s lives instantly. I mean, I was learning French in school. It seemed only appropriate. It was a perfect plan. I would open a lovely restaurant that served the most amazing crêpes and hot dogs with potato chips ON them instead of beside like some sort of boring page-turner for the featured pianist. That’ll do it!…
Sadly, the reality of this plan slowly started to emerge. I made a plan B of Medicine/Science and ended up sticking with that. In the end, though, I have always held onto the love of food and how it brings people together. The sincereness that a chef puts into preparing a meal or confection, those whom join together to share it, the moments of failure (you may very well see quite a few of those along the way on here) and success. It all ends up being worth it in the end. Seeing those around you as happy as a Peep on Easter, laughing and enjoying the company that the food and the Chef (that’s you!) have facilitated. There just isn’t anything better!
I can’t thank you enough for visiting my tiny pantry on the web. I’m just a Southern guy trying to pass along some tasty happiness.
Loosen your bow tie, mint your julep and stop in for a bite to eat.
