Menus: The Grey

FC0B5530-2DAC-4B7C-BC8F-9223D9EFF77A

Johno Morisano and Chef Mashama Bailey partnered to build The Grey in Historic Downtown Savannah. Occupying a 1938 art deco Greyhound Bus Terminal that they painstakingly restored to its original luster, The Grey offers a food, wine and service experience that is simultaneously familiar and elevated. Bringing her personal take on Port City Southern food to a city of her youth allows Mashama to tap into all of her experiences to create dishes that are deep, layered, and soulful in their flavors. With a penchant for regional produce, seafood and meats, guests will find a melting pot of surprising and comforting tastes in all of Mashama’s cooking with something new revealed in each and every visit.

Menus: Whit’s Frozen Custard

3EC080AA-DAE4-4D85-9F2B-0E39A47CC8A3

It’s rare that I include a franchise in my favorite restaurants, but I have a soft spot for Whit’s Frozen Custard.  It was a special treat when I felt up to it after my radiation treatments when I was battling cancer.  Of course we had our favorite spot in Atlantic Beach, Florida.

The first Whit’s Frozen Custard opened on March 3, 2003, in Granville, Ohio, at the end of one of the region’s coldest and snowiest winters in years. Granville did not know what frozen custard was and many felt it would not survive. However, there was a destiny to Whit’s beginning and, against all odds, mother nature could not delay Whit’s inevitable success.

Pickled Peaches

5B6D798A-6B86-4A73-8150-1B313F9B73FB.jpeg

12 small peaches, peeled with 4 cloves per peach
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup white vinegar
3 large cinnamon sticks

(Makes 3 pints)

Cut a shallow X in the bottom of each peach with a sharp knife and blanch in batches in a large pot of boiling water for 10–15 seconds.

Transfer the peaches to a large bowl of ice water and let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel the peaches, then halve them lengthwise and pit. Toss the peaches with the sugar and chill, covered, for at least 8 hours.

In a large stockpot, mix the vinegar and cinnamon sticks, with the peaches and their accumulated juices. Bring to a boil over moderate heat.  Skim off the foam. Reduce the heat and simmer until the peaches are barely tender, 3 minutes or so.

Divide the peaches and cinnamon sticks among the prepared jars. Return the peach-cooking liquid to a boil, then pour into the jars, leaving 1/4 inch of space at the top.

Wipe off the rims of the filled jars with a damp kitchen towel, place the lids on the jars, then firmly screw on the rings. Put the sealed jars on the rack of the canner and, if necessary, add enough hot water to cover the jars by 2 inches.

Boil the jars for 20 minutes, covered, then transfer to a towel-lined surface to cool. The jars will seal as they cool.

After the jars have cooled for 12–24 hours, press the center of each lid to check that it’s concave and that a vacuum has formed and they are sealed.  Store in a cool dry place for up to 1 year.

Place any jars that haven’t sealed in the refrigerator and use them first.

Menus: Husk Charleston

16CD9FD5-DDF0-43C5-8970-1A2A4DEE864D

An ever-changing menu of locally sourced Southern dishes served in a restored Victorian-era home:

“Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern food.  Executive Chef and Lowcountry native, Travis Grimes, reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and eat in the South.

Starting with a larder of ingredients indigenous to the region, Grimes responsibly crafts menus, playing to what local purveyors have seasonally available at any given moment. The entrance beckons with a rustic wall of firewood to fuel the wood-fired oven in the open kitchen, and a large chalkboard listing artisanal products currently provisioning the kitchen.  Much like the dĂ©cor that inhabits this historic, late 19th century home, the food is modern in style and interpretation.”
