Cynthia Graubart

Cynthia Graubart is a food writer, James Beard Award winning cookbook author, speaker, former cooking show television producer, and most-recently the author of Sunday Suppers: Simple, Delicious Menus for Family Gatherings.

Named a Georgia Grown Executive Chef for 2017, Cynthia shares her passion for her home state and its bountiful produce and products with her audiences across many platforms. She and her husband, Cliff, who owns the Old New York Book Shop, regularly travel to Book Festivals and host book store owners as well as authors on a regular basis in their Atlanta home. They have a full bar always at the ready. "I never dreamt of writing recipes as a child, but from college and beyond, I wanted to help people get to the table. That’s where the magic happens. I love top-quality ingredients, proper technique and perfect execution of recipes, but the truth of the matter is that I want people to sit down together at the table and talk. The family table is so important. Just think about the magic that happens around a family table – from paying the bills on it, to doing school projects, to family holidays, planning weddings, and planning funerals. Sitting at it for dinner enriches our lives in the sharing and caring that is expressed during the meal."

Pepper Ale

Luckily, pepper beers exist, which is nice for pairing a dish featuring peppers. We suggest Oconee Brewings Three One-Thousand pepper pale ale. Its pepper burn is not overwhelming, and will directly complement the sweet peppers in this dish.

Falanghina - Campania, Italy

Lemony flavors get along quite well with garlic, to take a lesson from classical matches in cuisine. A citrusy, high-acid white wine will complement the garlic notes found in this dish, and strike an even tone with the lemon and tomato marinade.
