Fettuccine with Scallops, Red Pepper and Lime

“My Fettuccine with Scallops, Avocado and Lime is a great dish year-round, but especially in the warmer months of summer. The spice rub adds some heat and depth of flavor to the scallops, the avocado adds a nice buttery richness, and the lime and fresh herbs bring a bright lightness to the whole dish,” says Iron Chef Cat Cora, whose restaurants include Cat Cora’s Kitchen in the Houston, Salt Lake City and San Francisco Airports, and the new Fatbird in New York City. “It’s healthy and delicious served both hot or cold and is a colorful, delicious and vibrant dish.”

5 Things We Just Learned About Cat Cora and Carla Hall

cat-cora-carla-hall-blog-her

Celebrity chefs and entrepreneurs Cat Cora and Carla Hall took the BlogHer17 main stage to discuss career, personal triumphs and setbacks, and advice for budding entrepreneurs—and there couldn’t be a more fitting duo to spark the conversation. Cora was the first woman to be named Iron Chef American and has opened 18 restaurants throughout her career. Hall rose to prominence as a contestant on Top Chef and has since authored two books and become a co-host on ABC’s The Chew. Ahead, five more things we learned about the two at Blogher17.

They’re proud of their Southern roots
Hall was born and raised in Nashville and Cora grew up in Jackson, Miss. Although Cora loves the South, she knew she needed to leave to find the opportunities she was looking for. “I grew up with two parents who were beautifully liberal and educated and wanted me to see the world,” Cora said. “That’s what led me on my journey to first going to college and getting a degree and then to getting into the culinary world and landing in France.”

FATBIRD

19399660_1833650403613817_6943845067931659576_n

Iron Chef’s very own, Cat Cora, has launched a new spot in the heart of the Meatpacking district – Fatbird. The new restaurant offers up classic Southern fare that New Yorkers know and love. While we may already have hot spots like Pretty Southern in Williamsburg to give us our fill, we have a feeling that Fatbird is going to be another one to sink our teeth into.

The Spot:

The sprawling space sits right on the corner of 9th Avenue in the center of all the Meatpacking action and can house up to 150 customers. Currently they are only serving dinner from 5pm-1am but after next week will serve breakfast and lunch starting from 7am.

The Food:

Expect Southern classics at this fried chicken palace like devised eggs, mac and cheese, crab hush puppies, biscuit sandwiches and, of course, chicken and waffles or shrimp and grits. Chicken comes both in ‘classic’ and hot Nashville styles. When brunch arrives you can expect items like their biscuits and gravy served with two fried eggs, avocado and fresno chilis in addition to crispy pork belly and grits and berry pancakes.
