FOOD STAPLES INFUSED WITH TASTE, TRADITION AND HISTORY

DISHES THAT ENDURE

Nothing evokes comfort and bliss better than Southern cuisine. Chefs and critics agree that every mouthful, from lowly to lofty favorite, is infused with taste, tradition, and history. 

Take the deviled egg. The origins of this dish date back to ancient Rome. English settlers brought it to our shores, using the term “deviled” to note the addition of hot spices. DeepSouthDish. com applauds Southerners for their variations of this party staple and encourages the sprinkling of everything from horseradish to caviar to add a bit of flourish.

For the fourth consecutive year, Bluffton chef and restaurant owner Leslie Rohland has been recognized with multiple Good Food Awards for new recipes at her two restaurants. The Cottage Café and The Juice Hive were recognized by The Good Food Foundation with five Good Food Awards. 

The national Good Food Awards honor those who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment and connected to communities and cultural traditions, a news release said.

The Juice Hive was recognized for Black Garlic kimchi, Amaranth Greens kimchi and Zephyr Zucchini pickles. 

When you indulge in one of the deliriously creamy scoops of rum raisin or cappuccino flake at Jack Frost (or any of their dozens of flavors), you’re not just tasting some of the best ice cream in the world, considered super premium by industry standards (containing 14% butterfat). What you’re tasting is the sweet results of the American dream come true. 

Teresa Brandow spent 13 years in the kitchen at upscale country clubs across the Lowcountry, developing skills and mastering techniques while at the same time nurturing a dream. With every pastry she made and delectable dish she prepared, that dream lingered that one day she would have a kitchen where she could create the ultimate and delicious healthy cuisine.
