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.
