Amuse Bouche – Fried Green Tomato
Google tells me this is a small complimentary appetizer in addition to the meal, sort of like a pre-appetizer appetizer. I’m in!
I don’t know food but I know what I like. And I liked this.
Second Course – Kilt Greens with bacon Dressing.
You had me at
greens bacon. A warmish salad with a light bacon drippings dressing. Topped with cherry tomatoes, bacon and Parmesan. Another winner.
You alert readers have noticed a theme. Everything was spectacular!
- Chicken: Brined in a mixture of kosher dill pickle juice and seasonings. Dipped in buttermilk then dredged through flour and fried in lard. It doesn’t get any better than this!
- Black-Eyes Peas: Prepared southern-style with smoke ham hocks.
- Summer Succotash: Lima beans, okra, corn, grape tomatoes, smoked ham, heavy cream, et al.
- Macaroni and Cheese: Not your school-lunch macaroni and cheese. It was so creamy. Creamy and dreamy!
Refreshing adult beverages were served as well.
If you get a chance to participate in one of George’s dinners, run, don’t walk.
Thank me later.
