After reader’s response to last week’s traditional Southern recipe with Top Chef favorite Kevin Gillespie , Grace and I could not resist offering a complete Southern meal to you. This week’s menu comes from Athens, Georgia-based chef Hugh Acheson .

He is partially deaf so all I got back in response was “Whaaat?” while flapping a hand at me to stop talking.
We have family visiting from out of town this week. Meaning, I've been a bit tied up, with not as much time to write. But, on the flip side, I have been cooking quite a bit. And in a change of routine, we've been eating dinners outside thanks to a new table purchase.
