DUMPLING MASTER: Chef Zeb Stevenson of Watershed on Peachtree puts a modern spin on chicken and dumplings.
Radio Station Carousel Promotion See our CL radio site for more podcasts

 

Chicken and dumplings is the ultimate cold weather comfort food, but in the hands of veteran chef Zeb Stevenson, what appears to be a simple, familiar dish becomes soulful with one bite. Stevenson braises whole pastured birds and slow simmers his stock for richness, adding strips of tender chicken, carrots, celery, parsley, and thyme to the thick broth. Dumplings are steamed to order so they remain fluffy when the dish hits the table.

On episode number five of Dish on the Dish, our bite-sized podcast spinning off from our biannual 100 Dishes issue, we'll hear from Stevenson himself on the story behind his famous chicken and dumplings, which he dishes out seasonally at Watershed on Peachtree.

Looking at the bowl, what strikes you first is the profoundly dark roux with its mesmerizing sheen. The umber shade promises a complex richness from continued whisking and a low-and-slow simmer. And it delivers. Oh, does it deliver. The gumbo is velvety, its thickness punctuated by bobbing nuggets of andouille sausage and plump Georgia shrimp over a mound of Carolina Gold rice. Buttery thick... | more...
