Chef Suzanne’s Cooking Tips

New to the blog: weekly we will be adding cooking tips and advice from Buttermilk’s very own, Chef Suzanne.

Suzanne enjoys music as she cooks as it makes her cook better. She is also currently reading “Setting the Table” by Danny Meyer which helps her to continue to hone her craft.

Stay tuned for more weekly tips!

Chef Suzanne’s Sawmill Gravy Recipe

  • 1 tablespoons pork fat
  • 1 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoons milk, to finish
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black peppercorns, freshly-cracked
  • ¼ cup country sausage, cooked

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the pork fat. Whisk in the flour. Saute the flour until lightly browned. Remove pan from the heat.

Pour the milk into the pan in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Return pan to the heat. Whisk until the gravy thickens. Whisk in the extra milk, salt, and pepper and sausage. Keep warm until needed.
