New Orleans French Quarter restaurant Sylvain‘s Collard Bourbon Soup offers an interesting and delicious new interpretation of long-cherished and essential New Year’s Day ingredients. This recipe combines staples of the Southern pantry: bacon, collard greens, black-eyed peas, and bourbon.
Chef Alex Harrell says the bourbon lends just a hint of sweetness, which plays well alongside the bitterness of the greens and the smokiness of the bacon. “While we love to use each of these ingredients individually, together they bring a new complexity and a savory flavor profile perfect for serving during the cooler autumn months,” he adds.
