Food Is Culture

Pecans, Peanuts, Peaches, Vidalia Onions, Georgia

Good Eats From The Georgia Soil

Often we think of portraits and evocative landscapes when we think of another country’s culture.  I’ve come to learn that music and food are equally informative when I want to learn about the culture of a place.

These are examples of Southern and in particular Georgia culture.  On the left are pecans, the middle peanuts, then Vidalia onions and on top peaches.  When I put this picture together I was struck by the pleasing color palette.

Homemade Raspberry Crepe

Crepe with raspberry, banana, and creme fraiche

Crepe with raspberry, banana and creme fraiche

Quick, easy, pretty and delicious.  The crepe is made with organic vanilla extract and finely grated lemon peel.  The filling is fresh raspberry and banana. On top is creme fraiche and raspberry.  After gently frying the crepes I put in the filling and broil for a minute or two to make the crepes crunchy. The creme fraiche is placed on top at the time of serving. The combination of flavors is a tasty interplay of tart, sweet and creamy.  If you’re in the neighborhood stop by and I’ll make you some.
