The Kitchen Essentials of a Chef Who’s Cooked in 5 Michelin-Starred Restaurants

This is Chef Staples, where professional chefs prepare the equipment they couldn’t cook without. This week: Chef Myles Moody from Kinship Butchery and Diverses.

An Atlanta-born chef who cooked a storm in New York restaurants returns to his old turf to add another grocery project to his impressive résumé. Myles Moody and Rachael Pack – a chef, writer, sommelier and director – will be opening Kinship Butchery and Sundry in the Virginia-Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta this March. The project will serve as a marketplace for food and drink lovers to buy everything from wine to meat, as well as produce and sandwiches. The couple will source their products from local producers, with an emphasis on highlighting sustainable food practices such as regenerative farming and organic farming.

Moody’s turn to kinship follows a long career as a chef among some of the world’s best chefs in some highly acclaimed restaurants. In Atlanta, Moody worked with James Beard Award-winning chef Linton Hopkins in his Holeman and Finch restaurants, as well as the now-closed Eugene restaurant. After moving to New York, Moody spent time in five Michelin-starred restaurants: Atera, Blue Hill, Blue Hill in Stone Barns, Eleven Madison Park, and Aska. Moody let us into the equipment he can’t live without while working in the kitchen.
