Neo Southern American Cuisine, whatever.
hello everyone, welcome 2 Stove, the restaurant in sunny PoNo, the historic part of Port Norfolk which is in the historic city of Portsmouth in this crazy historic state of Virginia.
I'm sydney meers and my cooking style has been tagged as neo-southern but i feel it's more Mid-Atlantic. Being from Mississippi you'll see a touch of my home state of Mississippi, ingredients from up here in Virginia and a bit of what I've learned along the way which has contributed to my cooking style and philosophy. Though I'm mostly self taught, my grandmother really learned me cooking and then after cooking in Mississippi, Alabama and later here in Virginia I added some education from Johnson and Wales university culinary arts program in mid career and having had the good luck of studding under some real good Chefs along the way like Hans Shadler, Marcel Desaunier, Marcel Walters and even my ole frin Monroe Duncan, the ultimate showman plus a few others along the way and voila, here I am years later.
