Sheri Castle is an award-winning, professional food writer and culinary instructor. She is known for melding storytelling, humor, and culinary expertise, so she can tell a tale while making a memorable meal.
"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."

Sweet Potato Porter
A winter dish featuring sweet potato and andouille sausage requires a beer that fits winter. Asheville, North Carolina's Burial Brewing has just the beer for the occasion. Skullsaw porter features a roasted malt bill that complements the sausage, and with the addition of over 1,000 pounds of North Carolina sweet potatoes, it becomes the perfect match. If you cannot find Burial Skullsaw we would go with a classic porter; finding one with sweet potato might be a tad difficult.
Chenin Blanc, Vouvray, France
Chenin blancs have brisk acidity and flavors of golden apples, apricots and quince. Some styles even finish off-dry to give a touch of sweetness to tame the heat from the andouille. The penetrating acidity adds a counterpoint to the creamy sauce.
