Current Issue | Spring Secrets

Spring is a time of discovery and newness; a time when secrets are revealed. We wake up from a winter’s sleep to find things have changed since the Spring before. The sun begins to shine again and our eyes open to a different world. Join us this month as we learn about secret Southern gardens hidden in our own backyards with forager Chris Bennett. We also tour behind the scenes with Johnny Fisher and Chef Bill Briand about new beginnings at Playa, their soon-to-open coastal restaurant. Meanwhile in Mississippi, springtime brings new rice variety for chefs courtesy of Two Brooks Farm. From the Delta farm, we travel to the elevated, budding green hills of North Carolina to make a sweet discovery at French Broad Chocolates. So this Spring, pull up a seat, open your eyes and uncover new stories about Southern food and farms with Eat Y’all.
