Biscuit Week at Southern Kitchen


Celebrate Southern biscuits with 7 days of recipes and biscuit tips

It's a different kind of March Madness over here at Southern Kitchen — it's biscuit week madness! Today is the first in a 7 day Southern tour of delicious, flaky, fluffy and golden brown biscuits. Welcome to Biscuit Week 2018. 

Y'all know we love anything and everything Southern biscuits, from recipes to tips to make them better, to stories about biscuit love. This week, expect to learn everything you ever wanted to know about Southern biscuits, from how to throw a biscuit party to finding out exactly what a cathead biscuit is.

We also did a very scientific taste test to find out which fast food biscuit is the best (to pair with your fast food fried chicken, of course!) Speaking of science, we're dive into whether shortening or butter, all purpose or self-rising, buttermilk or cream actually make for the best biscuits. All of this and more, plus Chef Jeffrey Gardner's 10 biscuit commandments coming to you this week.
