GardenFork Radio goes on the road in this show. First we hear firsthand of Mike's quest for the Pork Tenderlion Sandwich in Indiana. [ one of our favorite states ]
This place made me want to kiss my deliciously perfect grits...and chicken and dumplings....and deviled eggs, and oh, if only I could make out with that pimento cheese. NY Mag review of Seersucker
Eric got to meet up with Chef Robert Newton, who has just opened Seersucker, a new restaurant in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY . Chef Roberts serves updated Southern comfort foods; what will make this place well known are its Chicken and Dumplings. Eric visited Chef Newton early one afternoon to talk about what is it like to open a restaurant, and how we can make all sorts of great food with a pork shoulder.

Going to brine black beans overnight. Sounds like an interesting idea.
The interview of Chef Robert was cool. Listening to him talk about different cooking methods (brining beans, pork shoulder) showed his love for food. Also got a feel for what a chef/owner deals with in running a restaurant.
Mike, any pork sandwich with lots of crispy breading sounds great to me. But then again, I'd probably eat a crispy breading sandwich with lots of BBQ sauce. 🙂 Any candy store with old fashioned candy is fun to visit. The recording of Mike eating the food adds life to the experience.
Sounds like Mike and his camera operator had a fun trip!!!
Seersucker sounds a lot like the Brooklyn Star. Poor, poor Brooklyn Star, maybe one day it will return to us.
