National Baked Alaska Day - February 1st; Chef G. Garvin

Every day this month, I'm going to offer a brief biography of different chefs, and their books, restaurants, and relevant links. As pointed out by an article in the Chicago Tribune (March, 2012), African American chefs are underrepresented. I hope I can introduce you to someone new this month, maybe several someones. I'll continue with the fun foodie holidays, too, but I feel it's important to acknowledge these often-overlooked men and women.
Chef G. Garvin
Gerry (or simply "G.") Garvin is the author of Dining In, Make It Super Simple and Turn Up the Heat. He's hosted the tv shows Turn Up the Heat and Road Trip. He is also the founder of the One Bite at a Time Foundation. Garvin is a Georgia native, starting out his career in Atlanta, but also made a name for himself in California before opening his own restaurant, LowCountry, in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, with another location in West LA in development.

Today is Baked Alaska Day, and also Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! Kill two birds with one stone, and have Baked Alaska (which has ice cream in it) for breakfast. Hey, January's over, and most of us have ditched the resolutions to eat better anyway, right?

Available at Amazon.
