Kelsey Nixon, Out and About

Kelsey's Essentials with Kelsey Nixon

Get ready for a whole new season of Kelsey’s Essentials. This time around, Kelsey’s spending some time out of the kitchen, looking for inspiration as she develops new recipes.

Tune in to today’s premiere as she steps into the role of butcher at the Meat Hook in Brooklyn, New York. Kelsey gets a lesson a butchering, gaining a new appreciation for a butcher’s favorite cut of meat, the eye of round steak (much less expensive than other premium cuts). Plus, she learns how to make fresh sausage, tailoring the ingredients to her recipe.

Kelsey puts her new skills to use by serving up Chicken Fried Steak and Sausage and Shrimp Over Grits.
