According to Edge, Claiborne’s importance to American culinary culture is sorely under-recognized.
“He’s due,” he told Kasper. To that end, the SFA has renamed its lifetime achievement award after Claiborne. The winner will be announced during the symposium. And while Edge refuses to reveal the name, he hinted that the winner is someone who’s written about both food and music.
Former Food News writer Simone Wilson and I stopped by Ronnie Grisanti's on its last night.
It was past 10 p.m., and the place was crowded.
I just got back from India Fest out at the Agricenter. It was packed.
It's an absolute must for people who love Indian food.
I had the Tikki plate, which was a potato patty covered with chickpeas and a yogurt sauce. I washed that down with a delicious mango lassi.
The University of Mississippi’s Southern Foodways Alliance is holding its 12th annual symposium October 30th-November 1st.
So, in a decade-plus, how do they keep the event fresh?
“Hell if I know!” declares SFA’s John T Edge.
We first checked in with Frank's South Main Market & Deli in November when it had been open about three weeks.
A lunchtime visit today revealed the place to be under renovation and under new ownership. Adam Deek took over the spot July 1st.
Inspiration for this week’s cherry tomatoes from my Whitton Farms CSA actually came from Los Angeles. I arrived home recently to a box and inside were two HUGE elephant garlics from Frieda’s, a distributor in California which supplies specialty produce locally to Schnucks. The garlic is a featured product of the month at the supermarkets. Take a look at this:
“Nice is nice,” says Circa owner/chef
So here’s to nice, and here’s to Circa, which is celebrating its second anniversary, Thursday, August 27th, with a special dinner and art auction.
Cherry heirloom tomatoes are the repeat guests in my CSA share this summer. I get them every week, and that’s a good thing. They are flavorful, beautiful to look at, and, perhaps best of all, don’t require much preparation. Rinse them off, toss with a little salt, and pop them in your mouth. I keep a bowl on my kitchen counter for easy snacks.
Now that the Liberty Bowl will be selling beer, will they offer Bud Lite's "Fan Cans"?
The Fan Cans come in team colors and are sold near universities ... and apparently not everyone is pleased.
Sekisui Pacific Rim is my favorite restaurant in Memphis for many reasons. I love the glass-encased waterfall, the remix dance anthems, the Kill Bill poster in the women's bathroom, and the sushi bar that serves "Ocean Pyramid" until 1 a.m. on weekends. But despite all these extras, nothing brings me back more often than the restaurant's house salad: hearts of romaine in bite-size pieces, jumbo lump crab meat, and crunchy rice noodles tossed with ginger vinaigrette that is so good you want to lick the bowl for every last drop. The ample serving is enough for a meal, and, at $5.95, you can afford to order a second martini.

I’ve struggled with this small batch of potatoes for the past few weeks. I’ve cubed and roasted them with garlic salt, thyme, and olive oil (boring) and boiled them as a side with string beans (even more boring).
What I’ve wanted to do is make potato salad, but the small number of potatoes has put me off. For me, potato salad in the summer is synonymous with huge bowls of my mom’s trademark contribution to family get-togethers with the extended Denney clan. Could all that chopping for a small bowl possibly be worth the work?
“And we kept hoping somebody would do it,” Kelli jokes.
The Geminns opened Square Beans, on the west side of the town square, a year ago March, and it is, indeed, a good fit.

In conjunction with the Flyer's story about Memphis-inspired 901 drinks, we asked you to mix your own cocktails … and the results were colorful.
