Soul Food Sessions has a mission and it is to increase the opportunities for minority chefs throughout the culinary industry on a four-city tour thanks to a partnership with Coca-Cola Consolidated. Charleston is the last stop of “The Table is Set: A four-city tour served with a Coke” and is to be held October 16 at the Dewberry Charleston Hotel.
The main course is a New Orleans Grillades with Green Strawberry Relish paired with a Coca-Cola. This sounded like a great dish to make for my house of boys so I went to my local Harris Teeter to pick up the ingredients. Recreating this dish was so much fun and totally different than anything from our usual family menu. I love getting inspiration from others and making my family happy with a new and exciting meal. If the recipe contains meat and strawberries, its bound to be a hit in this house!
Want to give it a try as well? I will link the recipe HERE. Don't forget a delicious bottle of
Classic Coca-Cola! It cools down the spice and enhances the earthiness of braised beef while the acidity from strawberries paired with the refreshing pop from a Coke cleanse the palate after every bite. NOM!
