Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey

Since 1992, Chef John Currence’s City Grocery Restaurant Group has been the culinary epicenter of Oxford, Mississippi. The 2009 James Beard Best Southern Chef oversees four restaurants that showcase different aspects of the southern food experience. From the home-cured bacon at Big Bad Breakfast to the fine French-inspired Southern fare at City Grocery, Chef Currence’s restaurants are where to eat in Oxford.

Chef John Currence would rather punch you in the mouth with his fantastic flavors than poke you in the eye with fancy presentation. In his first cookbook, Currence gives you 130 recipes organized by 10 different techniques, such as Boiling/Simmering, Slathering, Pickling/Canning, Roasting/Braising, Muddling/Stirring, Brining/Smoking, and Baking/Spinning, just to name a few. John’s fun-loving personality rings true throughout the book with his personal stories and history, and his one-of-a-kind recipes for Pickled Sweet Potatoes, Whole Grain Guinness Mustard, Deep South “Ramen” with a Fried Poached Egg, Rabbit Cacciatore, Smoked Endive, Fire-Roasted Cauliflower, and Kitchen Sink Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Each recipe has a song pairing with it and the complete list can be downloaded at spotify.com. Over 100 documentary-style color photographs by photographer Angie Mosier complete this stunning look at the South.

Pickles, Pigs, and Whiskey is at once irreverent, and at the same time a serious look at Southern food today. John’s upbringing in New Orleans, time spent in his grandparent’s garden, experience living in Western Europe, and schooling along the Eastern Seaboard all inform this volume of recipes that reflects where today’s Southern culinary landscape is going. This book illustrates why Southern food is finally recognized as the driving force in the American culinary movement today.

Give Beer Head

Leave a comment

sonicfoamerThe Sonic Foamer is a device that can give any beer a head in seconds, improving its aroma and taste.

The machine is a platform that uses ultrasonic vibrations to create a froth on top of the beer, whether it’s a fresh pour or down to its last mouthful. Users simply place their glass on the device and press a button on the front, with a head appearing in a few seconds. The Sonic Foamer could be especially useful for craft beer drinkers, as the head not only helps the beer keep its flavor, but also releases the drink’s aroma as its bubbles pop. The video below explains more about the invention:

By John Verive at Los Angeles Times

Coffee finds its way into a lot of beer, and the natural affinity was explored at Uppers and Downers, a weekend event that brought together brewers and coffee roasters at Intelligentsia Coffee’s Pasadena outpost, and which culminated in coffee and beer coming together in novel and delicious ways.

Fans of both brewed beverages filled the Colorado Boulevard coffee shop, which also serves beer and wine, to sample a bevy of coffee beers, snack on luscious charcuterie from Lindy & Grundy, and learn the stories behind the beer from the brewers and roasters themselves.

67.5 per cent alcohol content – Snake Venom Beer

Leave a comment

snakevenombeerDaily Record – Two pals who brewed the world’s strongest beer have unveiled an even more lethal recipe – after fans said the first one tasted too weak. Lewis Shand and John McKenzie, of Banffshire’s Brewmeister Brewery, broke the record with 65 per cent alcohol Armageddon last year. They sold 6000 bottles around the world but some fans said it didn’t taste strong enough. So Lewis and John, from Keith, bought a new brewery and spent nine months creating Snake Venom, with a head-spinning 67.5 per cent alcohol content. Lewis said yesterday: “Snake Venom is definitely sharper in taste. With Armageddon, we actually tried to disguise the taste by making it quite oily. “We thought if it was too strong, people wouldn’t like it. But the problem we found is that people said we shouldn’t have tried to cover up the intensity. “Some even said they didn’t believe it was 65 per cent, so this time we thought we’d go full out. We were too nice last time.” Snake Venom has a warning label on its neck to tell buyers not to drink too much at once. Read More

Tailgating w/ @LustyMonk – Crispy Mustard-Roasted Chicken

Leave a comment

Crispy Lusty Monk Mustard-Roasted ChickenCrispy Mustard-Roasted Chicken
Adapted from Ina Garten’s adaption of the Barefoot Contessa’s Foolproof

Notes: You can find the original recipe online in various places, but these are the basic changes I’ve made: Lusty Monk Alter Boy Mustard versus Djion


4 bone-in, skin-on thighs and 4 bone-in, skin-on drumsticks
½ cup Lusty Monk Alter Boy Mustard
½ cup buttermilk
4 garlic cloves, peeled
a small handful fresh thyme leaves (if the strands are soft, no need to strip the leaves)
zest of one lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1/4 cup olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and place oven rack in the middle of the oven. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard and buttermilk. Place the chicken in a large bowl and pour the mustard-buttermilk mixture overtop. Toss to coat.

2. Place the garlic, thyme strands (stems, if they are soft, and all), lemon zest, 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons kosher salt (use 1.5 tsp if you are sensitive to salt), and 1 teaspoon pepper (or a few large cracks on the grinder) in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until the garlic is finely minced. Add the breadcrumbs and olive oil, and pulse a few times to moisten the breadcrumbs. Pour the mixture into a wide, shallow bowl or onto a large plate — something with sides is best.

3. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (for easy clean-up — this is not necessary, but I like using parchment.) Dip each piece of chicken skin-side down only into the crumb mixture, pressing gently to make the crumbs adhere. Place the chicken on the sheet pan crumb-side up. After one or two pieces have been dipped, the crumb mixture might not adhere to the chicken as well. Just use your hands to press the remaining crumbs onto the chicken pieces.

4. Bake the chicken for 40 minutes. Check on the chicken. If necessary cook another five minutes or until the crumbs are browned. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Keep pressed discs covered with a damp cloth.

How Women Saved Whiskey

Leave a comment

bring-boozeA new book, Whiskey Women, dispels the masculine myths linked to spirits such as whisky and bourbon, and gives the pioneering women behind booze their due.  “Women have never received credit for their efforts in the alcohol industry,” says author Fred Minnick, an award-winning spirits and Wall Street Journal writer.  Whiskey Women looks at the roles women played – from their part in inventing beer and distillation, to owning and managing iconic whisky brands, running bootlegging operations and saving the spirits industry from Prohibition.
