Nourish and Flourish: Flavors of the Season
Welcome to Flavors of the Season!
This issue has been exceptionally fun to create and produce because many of the recipes we researched, developed, prepared, cooked, and enjoyed eating! Some feature traditional cooking methods; however, this particular feast was cooked entirely on my Big Green Egg!
I grew up right down the street from where Ed Fisher, Founder of the EGG, opened his first retail store in Atlanta, and my dad had one of the earliest models. It was always the topic of conversation when we would gather to cook and eat with our neighbors. That was back in the day where everyone knew each other and no one locked their doors – true Americana. I really miss those days.
Today, I own four Big Green Eggs and cook on all of them. They are all so versatile and easy to use. This feast was a personal challenge as I wanted to shop, prep, cook the entire meal on the EGG, shoot the cover of this issue, and eat the meal all in one Sunday afternoon–for under $30.00. I grow my own herbs and used many ingredients I already had. Mission accomplished!
The smoky herb flavor of the chicken, with the garlic, oranges, apples, and tartness of the cranberries was a perfect combination. The roasted sweet potatoes added just enough punch with the rice to elevate this meal to another level: true threedimensional flavors. My husband Dan, Maggie Mae, and Sadie Sae, my two sister black labs, agree this is an awesome meal worth repeating!
Stay Calm and EGG on!
I consider the Big Green Egg team part of my family. I have worked with them for more than a decade creating Big Green Egg Lifestyle, a special interest publication distributed internationally. I have really enjoyed experimenting with many new recipes over the last year, and I certainly had plenty of time considering the challenges we have all faced! I considered this a gift to continue to expand my culinary horizons and shoot some great food to share with you.
I am proud to have Big Green Egg as one of our founding “patron of the arts” partners who support Nourish and Flourish, the food community at large and local businesses. Cheers!
