Our Favorite Quotes From Beard on Books with JBF Award Winner Sarabeth Levine

 

JBF Award winner Sarabeth Levine stopped by the Beard House this past week to discuss her new cookbook, Sarabeth’s Good Morning Cookbook: Breakfast, Brunch, and Baking, for our latest installment of Beard on Books. After learning a secret family marmalade recipe in her thirties, she began making small batches for family and friends. It wasn't until Levine met her future business partner (and husband) Bill, that she started selling her jams to the public. Together they opened the first Sarabeth’s restaurant in 1983 on the Upper East Side, marking the beginning of what would become an empire. Thousands of jam jars later, Levine’s restaurants now span from Long Island to Key West to Korea and Japan. Her creamy tomato soup, indulgent eggs benedict, and, of course, her acclaimed marmalades have found a place in our hearts and on our tables, seemingly no matter where you are on the globe.

Eat This Word: Sorghum

 

WHAT? Before refined sugar was popularized in America around the time of World War I, sorghum syrup was a common sweetener that was used on pancakes or in baking. Its use was so widespread that it was known as "the sugar of the Plains." The juice is extracted from the stalks of the sorghum plant and, like maple syrup, is boiled down. Today, you can find sorghum syrup, which is far better for you than refined sugar, at health food stores. Other varieties of the sorghum plant furnish a millet-like grain, used in porridge, breads, and soups in many parts of the world. In the United States, however, despite the grain's reputation as "a powerhouse of nutrition" (Food Lover's Companion), it is mostly used for animal fodder.
