the buzz





The southernmost of the original Thirteen Colonies, Georgia became the fourth state to be admitted into the Union in 1788. The state sits directly above Florida and is pinched between Alabama in the west and South Carolina to the east, leaving about a 100 mile strip of access to the Atlantic Ocean from Savannah in the north down to the border with Florida. Along the coast lies a stretch of coastal plains, marshlands, swamps, and Sea Islands that stretch into South Carolina and are known as the Lowcountry. Here, French and West African culinary traditions came together, resulting in a cuisine based on rice and the area's abundant seafood. Frogmore stew, for example, is a culinary creation credited to African-Americans of West African heritage known as the Gullah. If you use words like "goober" (for peanut) and "gumbo," you're speaking a bit of Gullah. Georgia produces more than 40 varieties of peach. Besides being the Peach State, Georgia is also renowned for its sweet Vidalia onions and peanuts. The rich-flavored pecan is another Georgian treat, particularly when converted into pies and pralines.

About me:
My name is Julian Denis Kitchens. I grew up in the small town of Blakely, GA, just a few miles from Jimmy Carter’s hometown of Plains. It was here that I discovered a love for cooking for others by watching my Grandmother. Her food was so comforting and delicious, but mainly it was absolutely made from a loving heart. I met my wife, Tina Hansen, in 1980 at Pepperdine University. We were married May 25, 1986 and have lived in Long Beach and Signal Hill our entire marriage. On January 8, 2005 God blessed us with the birth of our beautiful twins, Kaitlin Marie and Benjamin Kramer. Born at 27 weeks we have struggled with their health and development issues over the years. They are truly our little miracles and are happily enjoying their kindergarten class together. I am a full-time Stay-at-Home-Dad, PTA member, Book Fair chair, School Site Councilmember, Kindergarten Room Parent, Children's Choir Parent, etc. I have two Master’s Degrees, Public Administration/Counseling Psychology.
