"My first memories of cooking involve being in the kitchen with my grandmother when I was very small, 5 or 6, watching her make biscuits. My grandparents had a dairy farm about an hour away from our suburban home, and I got to go stay with her during the summer and on weekends. I thought I was cooking, because that’s how she made me feel, but I’m sure I was anything but helpful in truth. What I remember is an enormous bowl and lots of flour, and her energy and pleasure in being in her kitchen, working and creating, keeping me happy, and making something for us to enjoy. I didn’t learn a thing about how to make biscuits (except that making a mess with flour is part of the deal), but I learned that the kitchen is a good, fun, busy place, and that it’s fun to cook with and for people you love."

Nutty Mead

We really wanted to suggest a pumpkin cider to pair against the pepitas in this dish, but unfortunately, we are out of pumpkin season. It dawned on us that a nice nutty mead might be a good substitute. Viking Alchemist in Atlanta makes a mead flavored with almonds called Bliss which we think will go well with this dish.

Viking Alchemist Bliss

Sangiovese Blend - Tuscany Italy

Sangiovese has a firm structure to get along with the meatiness of the butter beans. It strikes a balance with the heightened acidity of the tomatoes, and has the right amount of rusticity to pair well with the barley.
