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."

New England Style Double IPA

What is a Country Captain you might ask? To us, it is best described as a Southern version of curry. We suggest serving it with a juicy double IPA. A New England style IPA is a juice bomb, and will add bitterness and sweetness to this curry dish.

Riesling - Mosel, Germany

The sweet, tart tropical notes of Riesling are joined by their bracing lime acidity that will complement the ripe and opulent flavors of the mango chutney. It handles curry well and is not intimidated by any spices in this dish.

• Place a small saucepan over high heat. Add rice, 1 3/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. • When water boils, reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and cook until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, 15-20 minutes. • Remove from heat. Set aside, covered, until ready to serve.
MISE EN PLACE • Peel and dice onion. • Discard pepper stem and seeds. Thinly slice flesh. • Finely chop bacon.
Season chicken on all sides with a total 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
• Place a skillet over medium heat. When skillet is hot, add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until bacon is browned and crisp, 4-5 minutes. • Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a plate; leave fat in skillet.
• Increase heat to medium-high. Add chicken. Cook without disturbing until browned on bottom, about 5 minutes. • Flip chicken. Cook without disturbing until browned on other side, about 5 minutes. • Transfer chicken to a plate (it will not be fully cooked).
• Add onion to skillet. Cook, stirring, until onion begins to turn translucent, about 2 minutes. • Add red pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pepper begins to become tender, about 4 minutes. • Stir in curry powder (the full amount will yield a spicy dish; use less if you prefer). Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
• Return chicken to skillet. • Add tomatoes and their juice. Break apart tomatoes to incorporate. • Fold in raisins. Cover skillet, and reduce heat to low. Cook until chicken is tender and opaque throughout, about 10 minutes.
