Growing up frying chicken with your grandmother on Sundays for the church congregation warms your soul.
Craig Green has been surrounded by extraordinary cooks his entire life. His grandmother, Anna Mae, made delicious Sunday dinners. While visiting for the summer in Shelbyville, he asked his grandmother why she was preparing ten chickens when there were only four people in the house. Anna Mae replied, “Just in case someone stops by”. After church the house was full of parishioners popping in to say hi, but they were really there for her cooking. She made damn good fried chicken.
Craig’s vast culinary experience includes day to day corporate operations to Culinary Innovation for some of the country’s largest brands. Over two decades, he has researched tirelessly and performed recipe development for Cheddar’s, Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group and Pizza Hut.
