Season 3, Episode 6
In many ways, cooking with southern ingredients feels like second nature to Ed, and for good reason — South Korea and Kentucky both lie along the same latitudinal line. The 38th parallel also spans southern Spain and Italy, San Francisco and generous portions of the American South. A similar terroir translates into some interesting culture crossings for chefs like Ed, as well as State Bird Provisions’ Stuart Brioza, who prepares a salad inspired by San Francisco and the Mediterranean, and Hog & Hominy’s Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman, who cook Memphis favorites imbued with Calabrian family traditions. Ed collaborates with Andy Ricker on a pancake that ties together the influences of China, Korea and Kentucky.
