What is a sonker? Who has a new kiosk in Opry Mills? Why was At the Table closed for a few days? You know the answers to these questions and more if you chimed in on last week's Bites open thread. Once again, it's time for you to fill this space with anything that's on your mind--recipes, restaurant visits, tips, questions--and we'll do our best to respond.
Here's our own CFox from last week, passing along a cherished Southern baking tradition:
I'm devoted to the classic cuppa-cuppa-cup recipe, as my grandmother called it. 1 cup flour, 1 cup, sugar, 1 cup milk, dash of baking powder, splash of vanilla and a melted stick of butter. Mix it all up, pour into greased Pyrex square, then dump 2 cups of fruit (fresh peaches or blackberries are best) on top. Do not stir. Cover with another cup of sugar. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream. C'mon over.
I'm already there, with spoon in hand. And while I'm busy, if you've got tips, news, gossip and other info you'd like to pass along in private, email cfox (at) nashvillescene (dot) com.
