Not exactly related but we dropped in to try out the premier burgers- Okay, not fab. Fries limp, weak in a word: pathetic. Best thing- homemade ketchup of which we got about 2 TBL worth. Lame. Overrated, overpriced. The original Craigie was much cooler...warmer.... Save your pennies and go elsewhere. Won't name my fave as locals know it but crowded enough as it is!
John Thorne's SERIOUS PIG cookbook has the best skillet cornbread ever! Skillet Cornbread- 1 8in cornbread
4 oz (about 1 cup) stone ground cornmeal 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 1/2 tsp baking soad 1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt 1 large egg 3/4 c buttermilk 1 tbl lard, rendered bacon fat or peanut oil
Preheat oven 425 The Key is to preheat the skillet with the fat or oil, in the over before pouring the batter. 5 min before you are ready for the batter, heat the skillet. Mix ingredients, pour, smooth, bake 20 min. Remove and flip! Yum! I am a Notherner but this version beats "ours" hands down! Enjoy!
