Raise your hand if you grew up regularly eating Sunday dinner as a family. Keep your hand up if you continue that tradition. Now, keep it up only if you make the entire meal from scratch.
How many of us still have our hand raised? Very few, I imagine.
We fill our Sundays shuttling kids to sports games, watching football on TV or tackling myriad to-dos before the work week begins anew. Who has time to turn a blend of grass-fed beef and pork into bacon-wrapped meatloaf or to labor over finger-lickin’ fried chicken, the smell alone so enticing it brings neighbors knocking on the door?
Purely on concept, Revival deserves four stars because it places a high value on coming together at the table. It relies on honest Southern cooking and a reverence for family recipes as much as farm-fresh ingredients.
