He owns four restaurants in Georgia, and serves as a judge on the reality cooking competition show Top Chef. Acheson was born on November 5, 1971 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He was raised primarily by his father in the Manor Park and Centretown neighbourhoods of Ottawa, with the exception of two years that he spent living with his mother and stepfather in the American cities of Clemson, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia. He ... worked at other well-known Ottawa restaurants, before moving to Montreal, Quebec to attend Concordia University. Later in the 1990s, Acheson moved with his wife (Mary Koon) from Ottawa to her hometown of Athens, Georgia. Acheson published his first cookbook, A new turn in the South: southern flavors reinvented for your kitchen, in 2011. Acheson and Koon currently live in Athens, Georgia with their daughters.)
