Whip Up a Cult Classic With All of Those Garden Tomatoes

Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel Shares Fried Green Tomato Recipe

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/13 -- Tis the season for tomatoes... lots of them. Whether you are a gardener, have a farm share, or just love tomatoes, no doubt you're finding them everywhere this time of year. So what better way to enjoy tomatoes than with this mouthwatering recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes courtesy of Scott Spaulding, Executive Chef of the luxury Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel.

Spaulding placed this recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes with Bosky Acres Goat cheese, Red Pepper Relish, and Micro Lettuce on the menu at Flagstones Southern Bistro and it has become one of the restaurant's most popular "Southern Shares."

While Fried Green Tomatoes are today seen as a Southern staple -- probably due to the 1992 film of the same name -- food historian and Carolina resident Robert F. Moss could actually find no historical record of them in the south. While the film did spur interest in them by restaurants in the south, Mr. Moss notes, "I found eleven recipes for fried green tomatoes published in newspapers between 1900 and 1919, but interestingly all eleven of were in Northern or Midwestern cities -- ranging from Fitchburg, MA, to Lincoln, NE -- the southernmost being Frederick, MD, which is a border state at best."

Regardless of where they originated, Fried Green Tomatoes are definitely here to stay, and no better time to try them than right now!

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
