Appetite For Instruction: Cream Biscuits
Demonstrated by Chef Robin Gill Lacy of the Cliff Café
Have you ever started dreaming while you were still awake? For breakfast lovers, those hazy moments between relaxation and rapid eye movement are the perfect time to begin pondering what pleasures the morning table might bring.
Here in the South, we have almost limitless fodder for these fantasies--from steak and eggs to grits and grillades--but a humbler dish is the stuff more dreams are made of. When you really think about it, nothing says morning comfort like a warm, buttered biscuit.
Today, Chef Robin Gill Lacy of the Belmont Hotel's Cliff Café shares what might just be the perfect recipe for this beloved quick bread. Her Cream Biscuits are fluffy and moist and win raves from diners, whether split and honeyed or smothered in gravy. They're perfectly dreamy, yet easy enough to tackle on the first cup of coffee.
And best of all, they bake up faster than you can say "Poppin' Fresh".
