"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."

Pineapple Sour

Sour beers have evolved from a curiosity into the mainstream. Orpheus Brewing has led the way in Atlanta in producing memorable sours. Over and Over is a tart pineapple sour weighing in at a quaffable 4%, making it the perfect accompaniment to a citrus salad.

Riesling, Finger Lakes, New York

While chicken is the main star of the dish, I like to find matches with the peripheral flavors as well. In this case, the Asiago is mildly strong and you need something sweet with it. Rieslings from upstate New York are crisp, and made in a medium-dry style that will also match the citrus flavors.


MISE EN PLACE • Peel orange zest in wide strips, avoiding white pith. Discard remaining peel and pith. Cut orange flesh into bite-size pieces. Reserve juice. • Peel and chop shallot. • Thinly slice celery.
Place a deep sauté pan over medium heat. Add orange peel, half of shallot, 2 cups water and wine.
• When liquid simmers, add chicken in a single layer. (If chicken isn’t submerged, add more water to cover.) • When liquid returns to a simmer (do not let boil), remove pan from heat. Cover, and let stand until chicken is opaque throughout, about 10 minutes. • Transfer chicken to a cutting board.
While chicken cooks, in a large bowl, whisk together remaining shallot, orange juice, mustard, 1 tablespoon olive oil, honey and 1/2 teaspoon PeachDish Salt.
• Shred chicken into bite-size pieces. • Add to dressing, and toss to coat. • Season to taste with PeachDish Salt.
• Divide salad greens, orange pieces and celery between 2 plates. • Top with chicken. • Sprinkle with cheese and almonds, and enjoy!
