Can West Virginia sausage gravy and Korean melon exist on the same plate? They can if you’re Scott Waybright - an educator, foodie, refugee advocate, and host of an annual Cider Day event in Charlotte, NC suburbia. For Scott, the simple act of crushing apples for its golden juice can have meaningful purpose and global impact if planned just right. It’s a southern heart with a global appetite on Episode 5 of our show!
Scott’s pantry must-haves:
- honey, molasses, sorghum – rich flavor/sweeteners for a variety of uses (purchased locally when in the NC mountains)
- spice packs and samples from around the world (friends send them to me and/or I find them at Compare Foods and Super G Mart).
- hot sauces and dried peppers – conversation starters and good for adding a kick to anything
