S2 Ep.10: Turnips: The Greens

Late winter brings “run-up” turnip greens, which Vivian sees as central to her approach to southern food, capturing both the spirit & the letter of what Chef & the Farmer is all about. Miss Scarlett helps out by procuring greens from a local produce stand, and discussing the how-to of buying & cooking good turnips to satisfy her "southern people". She quietly disapproves of Vivian’s cooking method, but both women eagerly sip the refined potlikker. That evening, Vivian downs a “cocktail for courage” as she awaits the arrival of Ben and Karen Barker, her culinary heroes.
