DROP-IN DINNER: Spicy Fried Chicken, Collard Slaw, Pepper-y Potato Salad, Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits by Christie Silversides & Lindsday Wood
Thursday night is Student Night at The Dep featuring the best in student talent from George Brown College’s Culinary Management and Nutrition program.
We’re bringing the South to the North to beat the winter blues! We will be turning up the heat on your taste buds with collard greens coleslaw, pepper-y potato salad, buttermilk cheddar cheese biscuits and, (after it visits a little place we call the “marination-nation,” ) some really fine fried chicken. Prepare yourself for a meal full of spice, citrus and sharp flavours.
We’re serving all 4 food groups and you’ll reap the health benefits of collard greens (Vitamin C to fend off that nasty cold,) potatoes (to provide potassium that helps cell function,) grains and dairy (to provide fibre and strong bones) and chicken (a good source of protein, Vitamin B2 and selenium.) Our menu involves a fair amount of capsaicin (spicy heat) which acts as a natural antioxidant!
(editor’s note: it’s fried chicken and potato salad, people. Who are we kidding? Enjoy it, and eat something really healthy tomorrow).
Christie is an enthusiastic cook with a penchant for creating bold flavours. She is currently a student at George Brown College studying culinary nutrition. She will be teaming up with her best bud and fellow cook, Lindsay, to make a few of their favourite things.
