Down South: 5 Life Lessons From Country Ham King Allan Benton

Jed Portman 7 comments

"Allan Benton might be the nicest man on earth." That's what they told me at Blackberry Farm, the luxury resort just up the highway from Benton's cinderblock office in Madisonville, Tennessee. They were right; he might be. And despite his god-like reputation among chefs and ham enthusiasts the world over, he must be one of the least pretentious figures in the culinary world. More

Mac and Cheese Soufflé with Country Ham from Sweet Potatoes Restaurant

Kate Williams 1 comment

This soufflé-like casserole is adapted from Sweet Potatoes Restaurant in Winston-Salem, and it offers much more than just macaroni, cheese, and eggs. The custard base contains sour cream in addition to heavy cream for added tang and texture; the pasta is mixed with not just mild yellow cheddar, but also blue cheese and Parmesan. Tiny morsels of country ham aren't really necessary, but can you really say no to a little extra pork? More

In the wrong hands, country ham can be a leathery salt-bomb, but this massive bone-in slab from The Pancake Pantry in Nashville was incredible.

Meredith Smith 6 comments

The Triple Crown kickoff race combines Thoroughbreds, country ham biscuits, and bourbon. Personally I don't care about the big hats, but as this horse race is the only American sporting event that attracts foreign royalty, there must be some reason for them. Some parties are more ambitious than others, but here are a few nearly mandatory elements that are the essence of every Derby Day celebration. More

Great Smoky Bacon, Country Ham, and Sauerkraut Pie

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

This Great Smoky Bacon, Country Ham, and Sauerkraut Pie is a savory pie somewhere between a quiche and choucroute. I know the combination doesn't sound all that appealing at first, but in this case it really works. A custardy mix of eggs and cream are mixed with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, and caraway seeds, all poured into a pie crust that's been brushed with Dijon mustard. On top of that goes chopped country ham and a bit of chopped parsley—it does wonders to lend a lightness to what's otherwise a very serious pie. More
