I’m about to open a beer garden [in Revival’s backyard] because I really love European-style beers. And as a self-professed redneck by birth, I do love moonshine.- From: http://www.atlantamagazine.com
13 Questions is a weekly series where we ask chefs 13 questions to get to know them outside of the kitchen. Kevin Gillespie is the chef/owner of Gunshow and Revival.
What’s one thing you wish you knew how to cook? One of my favorite things in the whole world is American-style Chinese food, and I’m afraid to learn how to make it because I’ll ruin it for myself by making it too fancy. I really love Mongolian beef.
My favorite place here is China King.
When you aren’t cooking, what do you do for fun? I am an extremely avid outdoorsman and fisherman. I hunt everything. That was how I grew up—we kind of relied on whatever we could hunt or fish to fill the freezer.
Now, myself and my dad and my uncles, we always plan multiple western hunting trips, like Rocky Mountain goats in Canada, sheep in Mexico in mountains. What we call camping, most people would call survival training. You find water, and you hunt for food.
What’s the last TV show you bingewatched? My wife and I watched all of True Detective back-to-back. We literally stayed up all night. It was intense. And it was 5:30 in the morning, and Val is an attorney, and she had to go and get ready for office.
What’s your guilty pleasure fast food? Buffalo wings. They might be my favorite food.
When I worked at the Chicken Coop, all we did was fried chicken and buffalo wings. I’ll sometimes go to places like the Local and Fox Bros, but when I want the classic old-school flavor, I make them at home. I’m the only person who has three deep fryers at home. - See more at: http://www.atlantamagazine.com/dining-news/whats-worst-dish-gunshows-kevin-gillespie-ever-made/#sthash.QDW9TlYt.KfOiYcty.dpuf
