Chef Sean Brock’s grandmother, Audrey, was a seed saver by nature.

In 2007, Chef Sean decided to carry on her passion. Working with a friend, he helped procure a rare red corn varietal, and grew it from the ground up.

The heritage of southern food is essential to Chef Sean Brock’s ethos, so he decided to make it into a cornbread mix, and we are now excited to support his mission by stocking our new Chef Pantry with his Jimmy Red Cornbread Mix.

The mix, made from the nearly extinct Jimmy Red corn varietal, created what Chef Sean calls “The most perfect cornbread of [his] life.”

Not only is it delicious, and not only does it help preserve and continue history, it’s also extremely simple to make.

We recommend making it in our Carbon Steel Frying Pan. Thanks to its naturally non stick properties, heat retention, and high walls, it is the perfect vessel for this recipe, and plenty others. Placing your cornbread batter in  Carbon Steel while on the stovetop allows your cornbread to develop a perfect bottom crust, and the wonderful heating capabilities of Carbon Steel then allow it to bake evenly.
