Cynthia Graubart

Cynthia Graubart is a food writer, James Beard Award winning cookbook author, speaker, former cooking show television producer, and most-recently the author of Sunday Suppers: Simple, Delicious Menus for Family Gatherings.

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."

Citrus Gose

Yes, it is an old trope, but a little citrus is a wonderful flavor when added to fish (not that this fish is lacking in flavor). We suggest Westbrook Brewings Key Lime Gose for this dish. Citrusy and salty, this beer will go with the fish and soy-ginger snap beans.

Riesling - Mosel, Germany

German Rieslings are often sweet, and have pretty tropical fruit and saffron notes that resonate well with ginger and crispy green vegetables. Rieslings are also elegant, and won’t overwhelm the delicate texture of redfish.
