This is the photographic tale of a momentous culinary collaboration. Two chefs with distinctly different backgrounds and gastronomic knowledge teamed up to turn Sammy’s birthday BBQ into an exquisite 5 (or was it 6?) course meal. Lucy, our resident pickle-master and South Carolina native, who knows more about real southern cookin’ than anyone I know (y’all), and my brother Tom, a future contestant on Top Chef, who just landed a new job at Eleven Madison Park (hellz yes) came together and created an actual real-life miracle.

Lucy’s South Carolina Low Country Boil of corn, potatoes, sausage, shrimp and onions — served family style with mustard, doctored up cocktail sauce, and love. I had never seen anything like this before. Why don’t people in the Northeast do anything like this!
Beautiful juicy beautifulness.
I don’t want summer to end!
