"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."

A steak served with apples and sweet potatoes screams German beer—or at least German-style. For this dish, we are going to suggest a slightly lesser-known style of German Lager known as a kellerbier, aka "cellar beer". North Carolina's own Burial Brewing makes such a beer under the moniker Blood Tusk: a hazy yellow lager traditionally hopped with lots of biscuit flavor from the malt. These flavors are like adding a thick slice of bread to go with the steak, apples, and sweet potato. Granted, finding a kellerbier might be difficult, so we suggest a traditional lager as a substitute.
Sangiovese Blend - Tuscany, Italy
There are soft cherry and wild berry notes in a super Tuscan blend. I also get red apple skin that I think will go well with the steak and apple combination in this dish.
