It seems fitting that when the owners of Acre Restaurant open their new Southern family-style restaurant, Bow & Arrow in Auburn, Alabama, Caleb will be the Executive Chef. Even though he is only 26 years old, he holds a Bachelors in Culinary Management from the Art Institute of Atlanta and has been working in kitchens for 10 years. A degree doesn’t make you a Chef, he says, but it does help you to run the business.

He says kitchens have changed since he has been in the business. A chef used to wear a white coat, white pants, and black clogs, he says, but today’s kitchens have become a little more rock-n-roll. Caleb is a Southern chef with his own style and philosophies which he uses to create a unique, healthy kitchen culture.

Bow & Arrow will feature:

  • Smoked Meats
  • Slow-cooked Vegetables
  • House-made Sausages
  • Smoked Turkey Breast
  • Fried Chicken Fridays
  • Smoked Chicken Sundays
  • Blue Plate Specials
  • Southern family-style foods
