Shop for July 4th Cook-outs at the Local Farmers Market

July-2016-cabbage-creek-farm-fernandina-farmers-mktAre you preparing for the 4th of July holiday? Well, the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market may have just what you need to celebrate Independence Day!

Start out with traditional appetizers such as Deviled Eggs made from farm fresh yard eggs found at booths by Naturals Springs Dairy (ten or 20 count) or Boatright Farms (available in 12 or 18 count packages). Simply Savory Gourmet offers over 40 flavors of easy to mix sweet, savory, or spicy dip packages. Pair one or two of those dips with a variety of freshly harvested vegetables found at any of our seasonal produce vendors and you will have a tasty platter that will delight, and impress, your guests.

If you want to show off why Fernandina Beach is famous for our local, wild caught shrimp, be sure to pre-order yours from Eddie or Debbie Chesser, of Chesser Seafood, at (904) 509-3337 or (904) 485-6853. This booth will sell out before 11:00 a.m.

Perhaps a steaming tray of homemade hot wings tempts your taste buds? Check out the B and D Hot Sauce Company booth. Danny, the “D” in B and D, has a simple recipe for cooking up 40 wings, with two sticks of butter, and 1/2 of a bottle of their “Hot” smoked bird pepper sauce, or Batch #5 (milder), for delicious wings. If you prefer to grill them, his spice rub is superb. Stop by their booth and Danny will give you the complete recipe.

All summertime picnics need fresh slices of tomatoes and cucumbers and you will find plenty at Kings Kountry Produce, as well as blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and watermelon. To really impress your picnic partners, get to the market early and ask Tommy King if he has any yellow flesh watermelons. On the outside, this watermelon has a traditional appearance, but when you slice it open the watermelon is yellow – and every bit as tasty as you’d expect.

Finally, your 4th of July isn’t complete without a fresh baked pie. Stop by Me, Myself and Pies, and pick out your favorite savory, creamy, custard, or fruit pie. This week’s specialty is homemade apple pie.

The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine, every Saturday.

Salt Winemaker Dinner Celebrates Ritz-Carlton’s 25th Anniversary

This fine event immediately caught my attention because my husband and I spent our first wedding anniversary at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, the year they opened the resort. At the time, they were offering a $99.00 per night Florida Resident Special to entice visitors to check out their 5-Star resort, and we jumped at the opportunity to enjoy this gift from my in-laws.

I remember the views were spectacular, and the room service and attention to detail impeccable. We enjoyed taking a swim, and having a poolside lunch. We invited friends to meet us for cocktails, and enjoyed the atmosphere of the lounge. We dined at their finest restaurant, were entertained by a fabulous pianist, and the final morning before our departure I treated my husband to one of their amazing massages. Those were fine memories indeed.

Now, as we approach our 26th wedding anniversary, the The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island is celebrating their 25th Anniversary with a special edition of Salt Winemaker Dinner series featuring Grgich Hills Estates located in Napa Valley, Califorina.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a reception and passed hors d’oeuvres and a glass of Grgich Hills Estate Fumé Blanc. Dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. with Blue Marlin ceviche and Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay, 2012. Throughout the evening, winery representative Frank Markovich will share stories of the winery’s heritage and details about the famous 1976 Pairs Tastings.

Chef Rick and Wine Sommelier Taylor Thompson will take you on an adventure of impeccable food paired perfect with some of the finest American wines.

You won’t be disappointed in attending this special toast to 25 years! The event is Friday, June 24th, at 6:00 p.m.; tickets are $150.00 per person.

For reservations or more information, please call the Ritz-Carlton at (904) 277-1100.

Read ’em and Eat 2015

Read 'em and Eat 2015Fernandina Beach, FL – Book lovers will have more than books to feast on when Friends of the Library (FOL) holds its next book sale, November 5-7 at the Peck Center on 10th Street. The Organized Firefighters of Fernandina Beach (OFFB) are cooking up smoked chicken dinners in tandem with the sale to help raise funds for library improvements.

James Tucker, OFFB president, announced the plan several months ago at a Fernandina Beach City Commission meeting in which the Firefighters presented a $500 check to the FOL for its capital campaign. “We are thrilled with this wonderful show of support,” said Bill Flynn, FOL president. “Firefighters are really at the heart of our community and they know how important good libraries are.”

The dinners include half a smoked chicken, cole slaw and baked beans. “The slaw will be similar to what we made for the cookout at main beach several months ago with pineapple in it. The chicken and slaw are unique recipes that go great together – we’ve never had any leftovers. It is a pleasure to continue our partnership with Friends of the Library and to see our beautiful library furnished.”

Tickets will be sold in advance at the Library on N 4th Street and at the Book Loft on Center Street. They will also be sold throughout the book sale. Dinners, $15 each or two for $25, will be ready to pick up on the last day of the sale, Saturday, November 7, from firefighters stationed in the athletic field by the Peck Center from noon to 2:30 pm.

The Book Sale kicks off Thursday, November 5, with a special FOL members-only preview from 5pm – 7pm in the Peck Center Gym. Non-members can join at the door and get first choice of thousands of books and DVDS for sale. (Membership is $15 for students; $35 for individuals, $50 for a couple or $75 for a family.)

Doors will open to all on Friday, November 6, from 9:30 am – 6 pm, and Saturday, Nov. 7 from 9:30 am–2 pm. Readers will find thousands of novels, biographies, histories, art, children’s books, sports, cooking and more, plus CDs, DVDs and audio books. Most are priced at $2.00 or less.

All books are donated and every penny raised provides the Fernandina Beach Library with new books, e-books, subscriptions, periodicals, network access and databases for job applications, resumes, certification tests for various careers, and more. In the past two years alone, FOL book sales have raised approximately $50,000 to supplement library collections.

Proceeds from Firefighters’ Dinners will go to FOL’s capital campaign to purchase furniture, equipment, collection upgrades and other items for the library. You can learn about FOL membership and how to donate and help, at www.fernandinaFOL.org, (904) 321-6529 or e-mail info@fernandinaFOL.org.

Celebrity Chef Kenny Gilbert Brings Southern Dining to Fernandina Beach

Celebrity Chef Kenny Gilbert Brings Southern Dining to Fernandina BeachUnderground Kitchen will feature rotating monthly menus showcasing different culinary themes, while also serving as a Culinary Think Tank for local and traveling talent.

Fernandina Beach, FL – Celebrity Chef Kenny Gilbert returns home to the Jacksonville area with the opening of Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen, a neighborhood-driven Deep Southern American restaurant. Located on Eighth Street, Underground Kitchen (UK) will offer residents of the Fernandina Beach area, the ideal spot to grab a seasonal, comforting and delicious meal.

With over 20 years of professional culinary experience, Kenny rose to fame in 2010 as one of the fan favorites on season seven of Bravo’s Top Chef. Since then, he has cooked for the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, Stedman Graham, Samuel L. Jackson and A.J. Calloway, just to name a few. Kenny began his culinary career in Jacksonville when he took a position at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company as an apprentice in the garde manger kitchen of their Amelia Island property. Kenny worked his way up to Chef de Cuisine at the age of 23 at the Ritz, helping to consistently secure the AAA Five Diamond Award for the property during his tenure. He would then set about, cooking in restaurants in Naples, Sea Island, Jupiter and Telluride, before returning to Jacksonville to open Nippers Beach Grill, where Folio Magazine named him Chef of the Year. Next up was Miami, where Kenny served as the Corporate Chef at the James Beard nominated Yardbird Southern Table & Bar and Khong River House. Now back in Jacksonville – third time’s a charm – UK is Kenny’s first solo venture with his wife/partner Anna. In addition to the restaurant, Kenny has a line of spices, Chef Kenny’s Spice Blends, which will also be available for purchase at the restaurant, and at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market.

“I’m excited to be back in the Jacksonville area – besides spending a considerable amount of time working here throughout my career, I am also not far from my family’s roots in St. Augustine which feels good,” said Kenny.

While UK will feature a daily seasonal menu based on the best local produce availability, there will also be weekly specials celebrating a particular region or cuisine from around the world, showcasing Kenny’s diverse international cooking style. Upcoming special themes include: Italian, Asian, Mediterranean, India, Caribbean and Latin Cuisines. In addition to the international specials, UK will also serve as a culinary think tank for traveling, young and visiting chefs from around the country to demonstrate their talent. Unique guest chef dinner events will be offered up on a monthly basis on Mondays, and will be ticketed for an all-inclusive price. “In addition to being excited about my first solo venture, I want to make UK a place for young and talented chefs to come learn and experiment – helping to support developing talent is so important to me as a seasoned chef,” said Kenny.

All of the dishes at UK are intended to be shared, and will come out of the kitchen as they are ready. Menu highlights include: BBQ Alligator Ribs with Carolina Gold Rice Porridge, Citrus Mop, Padron Peppers and Brussels; Magret Duck Tasso Ham with Pickled Pineapple, Anise, Mustard Leaves and Country Bread; and Smothered Organic Chicken and Dumplings with Green Beans, Carrots and Sage. Kenny’s famous Fried Organic Chicken will also be available daily, served with house made Datil Pepper Hot Sauce, Drop Biscuits and Greens. Collards, Hoppin John, Mac and Cheese and Cheese Grits will all be offered as a side, while desserts include: Coca Cola Chocolate Cake with Sour Cream Chocolate Icing and Dried Cherry Preserves; Yam Turnover with Buttermilk Glaze, Blackberries and Cracked Pepper; and Banana Fosters Parfait with Gingersnap Cookies. Seasonal sangria’s and mimosas will be available, as will craft beers, including People’s Pale Ale, I-10 IPA, Kings Street Stout and Jon Boat Coastal Ale from Intuition Ale Works, all by the can. A selection of international and domestic wines will be available by the glass or bottle, as will a rotating list of wines and beers brought in to complement each of the weekly international menu specials.

UK will serve brunch on the weekends, with a live trio band, and will also offer a special BBQ Express lunch on Fridays only, teasing one of Kenny’s next concepts scheduled to open late this summer, Gilbert’s Big Oak BBQ Shack. The BBQ Express Lunch menu will feature items like Deviled Egg Parfait with Tasso Ham Vidalia Onion Jam, Redneck Caviar and Country Bread; Fried Fernandina Beach Shrimp Po Boy with LTO, Charred Jalapeno Tartar Sauce, Organic Leaves and Lemon Dressing; and Meat and Three: Smoked Spare Ribs with Beans, Slaw, Greens and House Garlic Texas Toast. Off-site catering will be available starting in the fall, and will be available for events ranging in size from 25 – 500 guests.

The interior of UK evokes old-fashioned meets modern southern. Throughout the space, antique elements and touches are on display, including enameled cooking pots, milk jugs, old railroad signs, reclaimed wood window pains, burlap curtains and more. The restaurant has three main sections, totaling about 62 seats: The Safe House Lounge, Muscadine Hall and Datil Pepper Park. The Safe House Lounge offers guests a place to relax over a glass of wine and some small bites in the comfort of a love seat or decorative chairs, while Muscadine Hall offers the more traditional table and chair setup. Datil Pepper Park is the outside patio and will be open year-round, with a fire pit and heaters in the winter. The Park will also house a pepper and herb garden, which the restaurant will source from.

Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen will serve dinner Wednesday – Monday, 6PM – 10PM; BBQ Express Lunch on Fridays, 11AM – 2PM; and Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, 10:30AM – 2PM. The restaurant will be closed on Tuesdays. UK is located at 510 S. 8th Street, Fernandina Beach, Fl 32034.

Reservations are available via the restaurant’s website, OpenTable, or by calling the restaurant directly at (904) 310-6374.

FORK Dinner Sold Out in Less Than Four Hours

FORK Dinner Sold Out in Less Than Four HoursThe FORK Dinner being held on April 26, 2015, a fundraiser for the Barnabas Center, sold out in 3 hours and 42 minutes!!!

FORK stands for Fernandina Outdoor Restaurant Kitchen. This fabulous evening of dining was imagined by Tapha Sears and Melanie Grimley three years ago. The two wanted to see a multitude of chefs cooking together in an outdoor setting, taking away the comforts of their kitchen and giving them a chance to cook together.

The chefs involved this year are Chef Andrew Yeo of The Ritz, Chef Wesley Cox of Davids, Chef Adam Sears of The Maxwell Group, Chef Roberto Pestana of Espana and Chef Brian Grimley of LuLu’s.

This is a very unusual dining event and apparently it is not easy to get tickets!

The first year Chefs were Scotty Swartz of 29 South, Luca From Ciao and Brian, Roberto, and Adam.

The second year Chefs were Chef Ricky Pigg of Joes 2nd St Bistro, Chef Marshall from The Florida House, and Brian, Scotty, Adam, and Roberto.
