For years, Georgia native and uber food celebrity of the Food Network has entertained my kids and me and millions of other food lovers. He’s quirky in a genius who is up on trends kind of way and attention grabbing and…after meeting him the other night…I can say he’s NICE! He once sent out a tweet stating he ‘has a PhickleTini every day’ …which y’all can imagine made my day!
Phin and I pulled into a parking space in front of the iconic The Grill restaurant in downtown Athens last Thursday and with no change for the meter …stepped inside The Grill to ask for quarters …and there he was! Alton Brown in the flesh …doing exactly what I pictured he’d be doing while waiting for a burger. He was standing …taking a cellphone picture of one of many interesting relics The Grill has on display. I almost didn’t go over to his table …but what did I have to lose?! He’d either be nice or not or think I was crazy or …maybe he’d wind up being a friend.
To my surprise…he knew me as Phickles Pickles! …and he said “well, you have a great product.” …and I wanted to hug him but I told him I smelled like hotdogs because I’d just cooked hotdogs for our kids. He got up to take a picture with my husband and me and he agreed… I did smell like hotdogs. 😜 I guess now…he’ll remember me as the pickle girl in Athens who smells like hotdogs. And that’s fine by me!
Why is Alton Brown in Athens you ask? Well…he’s here to promote his show at the Classic Center and Phin and I get to go because Alton put our names on the list! You can go too! Find the details for his live shows at http://www.altonbrowntour.com
His show in Athens is this Tuesday October 21 …also upcoming shows in Greenville, Birmingham, New Orleans, Memphis and more.
He’s also a fan of the Georgia Bulldogs!
Follow his tweets for daily giggles …as he frequently answers questions with drawings on post-it notes.
And yes…we PHICKLED him! We always have a jar or two with us just in case. I hear Alton lives in Marietta …so I hope he visits The Local Exchange on the Marietta Square….where the Phickles are.
Get your tickets!
For me…it’s back to peddlin’ the pickles.
In anticipation of Terrapin Brewery’s annual Hop Harvest Festival, I’m using their beer in different pickling recipes to share in our tent at the festival. Today…I made Beer Brined Sausages with Terrapin’s RYE Pale Ale and Little Smokies from Hillshire Farm. They taste great!
The 5th Annual Hop Harvest Festival will be Saturday, October 11 at Terrapin’s Athens brewery location on Newton Bridge Road.
A Special Release beer will be featured and a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Dogwood Alliance.
There will be Live Music, Local Vendors (like us!,) and a wide selection of Terrapin favorites …with the hops being the star of the show.
To find out more information and to purchase tickets ($20) to this fun event in the PHUNNEST city on earth, check out their website: http://TerrapinBeer.com And don’t forget to stop by our tent for a taste of our fun beer pickle projects and our new cheese spreads!
Six simple ingredients to a delicious, quick meal for anytime of day. I actually made this for breakfast today…it’s a good balance of carbs, protein, fiber & salty yumminess from the pickles!
I gave a flour tortilla a squirt of Sriracha chili sauce, then layered on arugula, chicken salad, our House Pickles & black pepper.
The chicken salad is available here in Athens at Bell’s Food Store. It’s a recipe from an old Athens favorite …the Five Points Deli …that was a popular spot with locals for many years until it sadly closed a few years ago. Fortunately, we can still get a taste of it by picking up a container of it at Bell’s …a family owned and run grocery store that has all the regular stuff with a large selection of locally-loved food items. Bell’s is also a home to our pickles and the best, fresh meat in town.
Have a great day and remember to give some love to the stores who are supporting small food producers just like us. My morning devotion today was all about being Salt and Light…so I’m hoping I’ve shed a little light today …about a great place to shop…& the salt part…well, that ones easy! It’s in the PICKLES!
