NEXT DOOR CHEF: NASHVILLE
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.
