HAMBY'S BUTTERMILK BISCUITS



This biscuit recipe comes from Hamby Catering in Charleston, South Carolina. Patricia Altschul, cast member of the popular series "Southern Charm" and former New York City socialite, served these biscuits, loaded with ham, at her Kentucky Derby party.  To see the writeup about the event, visit here.  ENJOY!

Hamby’s Buttermilk Biscuits

Makes 60 small biscuits
            
5 cups self rising flour
2 cups of buttermilk
1 tablespoon sugar
melted butter
1 cup vegetable shortening

Combine flour and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender to resemble coarse meal. Add buttermilk. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 4 times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees 8 to 10 minutes. Brush tops with melted butter immediately after removing from oven. Biscuits may be served plain or filled with premium or country ham.
Note
Be sure the oven is set on 450 degrees throughout the baking period. A lower temperature will dry biscuits out before they are done. When turning dough out onto pastry cloth, avoid adding too much extra flour as this will cause the dough to toughen. A shiny baking sheet will help prevent over-browning biscuits on the bottom.

WINDSOR SMITH HOMEFRONT: DESIGN FOR MODERN LIVING


WINDSOR SMITH HOMEFRONT: DESIGN FOR MODERN LIVING
 by Windsor Smith
Rizzoli USA, $50.00
Reviewed by Teresa Hatfield 
Author, Splendid Sass



I have been following the work of Windsor Smith for quite some time, and her work never disappoints. She is just so talented and creative, using unique pieces of furnishing, art, and textiles.

When I opened her recently published book, with over 250 pages showcasing  swoon-worthy rooms, I was in design heaven. Many of the rooms were my all-time favorites, while many were new to me.

Below I have included six of my favorites, but you will need to get your copy to indulge in the beauty.  ENJOY!
