Brandy Milk Punch

Brennan's Restaurant in the New
Orleans French Quarter is a milk
punch mecca. This is their recipe.
Garnish
Freshly grated nutmeg
Cocktail
2 ounces brandy
3 ounces half-and-half*
2 ounces Simple Syrup (recipe follows; in
the book, see page 174)
1/4 ounce vanilla extract
Cubed ice
Rocks glass

Place brandy, half-and-half, Simple Syrup and vanilla in a shaker. Add
ice and shake. Strain into ice-filled
glass and garnish with freshly grated
nutmeg. *If half-and-half is too rich
for you, replace some or all of it with
whole milk. Makes 1 (7-1/4-ounce)
cocktail.
"The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails" gives two
recipes for Simple Syrup, one made
with white sugar and one with turbinado sugar. Here they are combined
for simplicity's sake.

Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup granulated white sugar or 2 cups
turbinado sugar

In a small saucepan set over high
heat, bring the water and sugar to a
boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from
heat and cool to room temperature.
Refrigerate in an airtight container
for up to 1 month. Makes 1-3/4 (if
made with white sugar) to 2 cups (if
made with turbinado sugar).

Alliance Guide to Cocktails" by Sara
Camp Milam and Jerry Slater, with

Baked Grits and Greens
The love of my life does not like
grits. Well, this just won't do. They're
something I dream about, something
that makes me want to do a cartwheel
when I think of them! Since I believe
in sharing the experience of food with
the ones you love, it is only natural
that when I discovered his dislike of
grits, I instantly went into science

mode. My hypothesis was that he just
hadn't had the right grits, but when
he did he would love them. And thus
began the crazy grit experiments of
2014. I would cook them 20 different
ways, with 20 different flavors, and
he would try them all. This is the recipe that validated my scientific claim.
1 cup (170 g) grits (not instant)
4 cups (960 ml) vegetable stock
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
2 shallots, finely diced
1 (10-ounce/280 g) frozen collards, thawed,
squeezed dry
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream
1 cup (245 g) ricotta cheese
1 cup (115 g) grated aged Gouda cheese,
divided
2 large eggs, beaten

Make the grits ahead of time:
Spray the inside of a slow cooker
with cooking spray. Add the grits,
stock, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Cover and cook on
low until tender, 5 to 6 hours. Now
that the grits are done, you can build
the bake!
Make the Baked Grits and
Greens: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the coconut oil in a 10inch cast-iron skillet. Add the shallots
and sauté until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the collards and garlic. Sauté to cook off any excess water, about
2 to 4 minutes. Set aside. In a large
bowl, combine the grits and cream.
Add the collard mixture, ricotta and
half the Gouda. Taste and season
with salt and pepper, if needed. Add
the eggs and pour back into the skillet. Top with the remaining Gouda
and bake until the center is set and
the top is golden brown, about 35
minutes. Serve hot or warm. Serves 6.

Short Stack Editions, begun in
2013 with a Kickstarter campaign,
publishes small, single-subject booklets of about 50 pages sans images
that make great stocking stuffers. The
books are written by well-established
culinary authorities, such as Atlantans
