Notes
These recipes performed by the Chef and the Fatman staff at Kinsey Family Farm in Gainseville, Georgia.
It is always a pleasure to do a show at Kinsey family Farm, the owners and the staff are doing a good business for the right reasons and it seems that they are having a good albeit busy time doing it.
Our Farm hands that day we had Kevin Jenkins with the microphone, chef Fred Genovese doing the cooking, Mike Stock running interference and taking pictures, chef Erik Holdo as a moderator and color commentator with Linda Genovese running our clock and the lovely Karen Jenkins on the sound board in her usual technical chair.
We also had as a guest Bob Sandage of the Wrecking Bar Brewpub here in Atlanta, Bob did a beer braised pork shoulder that was amazing and also brought along 3 of his brewed-in-house beers for us to sample.
Jill Caramella was also a guest, she is an independent public relations and marketing expert with "Crafted by Jill Caramella".
