It’s not the electric third rail of Southern cooking (that would be cornbread) but biscuits and gravy is pretty high up there in terms of opinions of what should and shouldn’t be done. When I asked my friends on Facebook about the cream gravy for said dish, they had opinions. LOTS of opinions. And everyone had their own take on it. From going all out and adding herbs and fancifying it, to the straightforward, no-frills bacon grease, flour and milk with salt and lots of pepper.

Turns out gravy is almost as polarizing as other traditional Southern dishes like fried chicken and cornbread. Being born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri I identified as being from the Midwest, with some southern influences. Strange it may seem, most East coast and West coast folks view Missouri as the south. But ask anyone in the deep south and they’d just sneer at the idea of Missouri as the south. Nevertheless, biscuits and gravy was something I ate at diners all the time in St. Louis; usually after going to the bars, slightly tipsy and always ravenously hungry. Ah youth…when I could dance all night long and eat with abandon.

Once I moved out to San Francisco I ended up shifting to a more “California” style diet of fresh, local, seasonal ingredients and dishes. Mostly because that is what was offered and what everyone else ate, but also because some dishes, like biscuits and gravy, were more difficult to find. Though there are a few decent places in San Francisco that offer biscuits and gravy, I really had to look hard to find them. So when I did have a craving for a food that reminded me of my wild youth, I just had to resort to making it at home.
