Anson Mills Grits are the only grits that we use at Soby's . If you have never had them you have missed out. They are the creamiest and most full bodied grits I have ever tasted. Gleen Roberts sold all his possessions and started up Anson Mills in a old warehouse in Columbia in 1998. A few years earlier he had found the old Carolina mill corn in a bootleggers field near Dillion South Carolina. It was a corn used for milling dating back to the late 1600's. Check them out under Soby's links.

Peaches are the one single fruit that can keep me awake at night in early spring. Early spring is a nail biting time for South Carolina peach growers and chef's. Last year over 80-90% of SC peaches where lost due to a late Easter frost. South Carolina peaches are in my opinion the best in the world. Yes I said it . But this year is going to be a great comeback year for these sweet southern jewels. Like pork you will see me write a lot about peaches over the next few months. Here a few from Barnwell South Carolina.
me with spring greens ,carrots, and radish's. Here's some beautiful Easter egg radishes and carrots. Picked this morning and served this evening. As I like to say "thousands of miles fresher"

This past week has been busy for us. Joey (that guy) Pearson and I headed to Atlanta for the Southern Foods Show. We made a few stops but I wanted to tell about one place we ate that was unbelievable. Scott Peacock's Watershed in Decatur GA is bar none, Here is the Grits and Pullman Plank. Joey and I both took advantage of Tuesday's Fried Chicken Night.

I've wanted to start a kitchen blog for a long time. It has finally happened. I will be posting photo's all the time. And any new ideas that emerge from the Dark Knights. ( AKA Soby's Kitchen Team)
