“come enjoy a neo-Southern style of cooking”
hello everyone, welcome 2 Stove, the restaurant in sunny PoNo, the historic part of Port Norfolk which is in the historic city of Portsmouth in, this is crazy, historic Virginia and our motto is 'Quality, not Quantity'. I'm sydney meers, I do a kind of neo-southern style of cooking. Being from Mississippi you'll see a touch of my home state of Mississippi and a bit of what I've learned along the way in my writing and cooking style. my grandmother really taught me cooking and then I added some education from Johnson and Wales university culinary arts program and I studied under some real and good Chefs along the way like Hans Shadler, Marcel Desaunier plus a few others and voila, here I am a few years later. we use great local produce, fish and meats that I get not to far from the restaurant, I grow food for here, make my smoochie bear ham as well as my sausage and my PoNo city cured hams. With global warming I'm even able to get fresh root veggies from my farmers in winter as well as summer. Some friends of mine make what I call a real Smithfield ham. It's a salt cured ham near by from Tommy and Dee Dee Darden's farm just southwest of Smithfield, I get some great yellow, blue and brown oyster mushrooms from Dave and Dee out in Sedley va plus my ole frin, Judy Clark of Clarke's farm in Chesapeake and a hole host more so you can count on fresh, local and very good foods here at stove. I'm surrounded by water so fish is the best and I mostly cook fish but in autumn and winter I do a bunch of meat, wild game and pig, love pork bellies, oh my, and I cure my lardo, cure and slow roast the belles, make my sausage and ham as I mentioned and we dry age our meat. I'm getting ready to hang my hams so you can see we really make most all things here, I just can't grow fish or meat right now, not enough room. Anyway you can see we are devoted to preparing real good and healthy foods for our clientele. We support local farmers and fisherman, are a part of the southern food ways alliance as well. u can join and support them by joining on the web. so, call and make a reservation, it's a nice 32 seat restaurant with great art, food and all of this in a quaint setting and in a quaint neighborhood, join us, want u.
