With the rising popularity of the “Farm to Table” movement and along side it star chefs like Sean Brock, Kevin Gillespie, and John Besh all promoting the concept in different ways, their influences have started to change the way I utilize local ingredients at home. Mostly it means considering a broader scope of fresh, seasonal, ingredients and trying to utilize as much of it as possible without waste. Learning to cook seasonally and locally has Southerners really considering our roots and a return to a society based around knowing and understanding where our food comes from, and if possible meeting the person responsible for producing it. Thinking about all this and the holidays inspired me to explore a Roasted Leg of Lamb for a nice change of pace.

A wine tasting is a great way to get some friends together, try a few new wines and learn something new about your own palate. The Hungry Southerner recently hosted our first wine blind tasting. We had a great time discussing (and sometimes debating) the virtues and drawbacks of the five Spanish reds we sampled.
