Hey guys!

You might remember from a few posts back that I had the pleasure of attending Morton Salt’s Next Door Chef: Nashville event with some fellow bloggers.  We enjoyed a meal prepared by local Nashvillian, Travis Nunn, who was coached by acclaimed Chef Karl Worley of Biscuit Love, to learn how to prepare a remarkable meal using the right types of salt the right way.  The video of my meal just went live on Monday, March 20th and showcases how to prepare a meal using different types of salt!

It really was a magical evening with a 5-course spring-inspired menu.  (Perfect for this time of year!)  We dined at Travis’ home, turned pop-up restaurant called “Indie’s Kitchen,” named after his daughter! 

Here’s a peek at some of my favorites dishes that were served:

Pimento Cheese with Twice Baked Crackers.  You can’t do southern without pimento cheese!  The chefs used Morton Coarse Sea Salt to give this spread a nice “pop” when you bite into it (especially with those radishes).  MMM!

Chicken Country Captain.  This chicken and cheese grits dish featured curry, a spice I adore!  Because of the Morton Kosher Salt, it actually allows the curry powder to be used all on it’s own.  I can’t wait to try this at home at vegetables or french fries. 😋

Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake.  Strawberry is one of my favorite dessert flavors, y’all.  The strawberries in this dessert dish are actually brined in a Morton Kosher Salt and sugar to bring out the natural juices to create a sauce and enhance the natural sugar found in the fruit.  Every. bite. was. perfect.

Now salt is one of those seasonings where a little actually goes a long way!  At the Nashville event, I actually learned more about the benefits of using Morton Kosher and Sea Salt vs. standard table salt when cooking at home.

The 3rd Morton Salt’s Next Door Chef: New Orleans will be released this summer so stay tuned for some inspiration for your summertime cooking and grilling!  You can also check out the 1st Next Door Chef: Chicago for more delicious recipes.

I’m just commenting to make you know what a really good discovery my cousin’s daughter encountered reading your blog. She picked up many things, which included what it is like to possess a very effective coaching nature to have the mediocre ones just have an understanding of some problematic subject matter. You undoubtedly surpassed visitors’ expected results. Many thanks for churning out these valuable, safe, revealing and even cool thoughts on the topic to Evelyn.
