"I’ve been a cook and writer my whole life. I wrote my first original recipe and mailed it to a TV show when I was four years old. I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."

Hops are no longer just about the bitterness they impart, which makes pairing India Pale Ales much more interesting. Hops now bring a gamut of flavors, ranging from tropical mango and passion fruit all the way to unrestrained piney and green bitterness. In this dish, we want a greener hop flavor to serve as a counterpoint to the portobello's umami and a medium malt base to match its hardiness.

Pinot Noir - Sonoma County, CA

The portobello mushrooms would highlight the earthy, forest floor notes of a pinot noir quite well. Light- to medium-bodied in style, the wine will not overwhelm the delicate vegetable component of this dish.
