There is a long list of the fantastic things that came from the planning session which we will soon share as we relaunch our AWB site. But, one of the main highlights of our time on the mountain was a culinary demonstration in the Institutes state-of-the-art kitchen. Chef Robert Hall, a native Arkansan, Olympic chef, and army veteran, treated the AWB Leadership Team and some Arkansas Women Blogger members, who are some of the top foodie bloggers in our state, to a five-course meal.
Now, I am a bit more into growing veggies and selling them at the farmers' market than cooking, but like all true Southern Belles, I know how to fry me up some green tomatoes. So, go check out Chef Hall's recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes and then take a recommendation from me on how to kick it up a notch.
Fried Green Tomato Po'boys, yes ma'am, yummalicious. Cut some French bread baguettes into 6-inch lengths. Split each lengthwise but not through to the other side, Spread with some Rèmoulade Sauce. Yes, it is getting dangerously delicious right now. Layer some shredded lettuce, the Fried Green Tomatoes, cooked bacon (oh yes, bless your heart), and some avocado slices. Then, devour.
Or, you could also place some fried green tomatoes and cooked bacon on a hot buttermilk biscuit. uh-huh, that's right, I went there. Crisp, golden-crusted, hot out of the skillet fried green tomatoes, not sure it can get much better.
From one of my favorite movies, yes, Fried Green Tomatoes:
