That’s the only conclusion we at SavannahBest.comcan draw about the owner/chef of The New South Cafe, founder and non-stop participant of the Coastal Catering Alliance as well as the Destination Management Company. Now, to top off all of this, he’ll be doing a new, weekly radio show, The New South Journal, on AM radio,  Star 1400.  Oh yes, and he just won the Small Business Chamber’s New and Emerging Small Business of the year award!

Flower Power Cooking

From the chef at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel come these words of wisdom about cooking with flowers:

Incredible, Edible Flowers! – Chef Abigail Hutchinson


     With all the flowers blossoming and brightening our lives, I’d like to share some fun things with you. How about cooking with flowers?

     Pansies, mint, daylilies and squash blossoms are just a few of the flowers that we love to get and play with. They can accent desserts, appetizers, soups, salads and entrees in various exciting ways. Their colors and flavors can take any dish to the next level. Whether you’re just topping off a chilled Champagne and strawberry soup with a pedal of a pansy, or you’re adding a sprig of mint to your raspberry mousse, flowers tend to open the senses.

     I enjoy rough chopping a few varietals, mixing them with a dash of Chambourde and maybe a hint of cinnamon, and then using the mixture as a side garnish for a dessert such as cheesecake or a Bavarian cream. Or, for the same application, using aged balsamic vinegar instead of the Chambourde is nice as well. This gives an extra spike of flavor that will surely “turn on” the tongue sensors.

     Our chefs also enjoy stuffing squash blossoms and offering them as an appetizer special in the Grand Dinning Room.

Brunch at Eos

Just stopped by to sample the new brunch menu at Eos, and it appears that this little eatery is already living up to its name, Eos, which means Goddess of the New Dawn. i tried, appropriately enough, the The New Dawn, two eggs, sunny-side up (or however you prefer them) with sauteed mushrooms over spinach and pan-roasted tomatoes, all served with sourdough toast and homefries or grits. The whole works–eggs, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and maybe best of all, that superb sour dough toast, was fit for, well, a Goddess.

My companion tucked into the salmon BLT. Beautifully grilled salmon  served atop a lovely fresh croissant, with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and a delectable side salad, all with a beautifully aromatic aioli sauce.  Couldn’t be better, he prounced it.  

Later in the week, I’ll be doing a detailed review for of both the brunch and dinner menus of this delightful eatery, but meantime, I say it’s a winner!  Oh yes, took my beloved dog, Athena along. The owners provide dog bisquits and are definitely doggie-friendly.
