Peanuts Ain’t Nuts with Chef Steven Satterfield

April 28, 2019

Join me as I chat with Chef Steven Satterfield about our favorite, not-actually-a-nut, the peanut! Peanuts belong to the legume family and are also known by the names of groundnut, goobers and monkey nut. The crop was domesticated thousands of years ago in South America, but now is sold across the globe in the forms of roasted or boiled nuts, oil, butter or even peanut flour. While they are a tasty treat to many, they are also implicated in food allergies for some, which can range from mild symptoms to life-threatening anaphylactic shock. 

Chef Satterfield is the executive chef and owner of Miller Union, an award-winning, seasonally-driven restaurant located in Atlanta's Westside neighborhood. Since opening in 2009, the restaurant has received various honors on many national lists including Eater, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Esquire and James Beard Foundation. In 2015, Satterfield released his first cookbook, Root to Leaf, to broad critical acclaim. Peanuts, his second book, is a delightful collection of recipes that offers ingenious ways to cook peanuts, from childhood snack, to kitchen condiment and even the centerpiece of a meal.
