in the kitchen with: nicole taylor?s cherokee rose pound cake


Rose season is just winding down, but this week?s recipe for a Cherokee Rose Pound Cake by food maven and host of Hot Grease on Heritage Radio network, Nicole Taylor, is one more way to keep the rose around.  I had the immense pleasure of meeting Nicole in mid-April.  We had a mini food tour of a few blocks of Brooklyn, and it was so great to hear Nicole?s passion for food and Southern food culture, and her knowledge of the New York food scene.  People like Nicole make me want to live in New York so bad it hurts my heart!    Like many of the guests here on the column, I?d love to be Nicole?s neighbor, in hopes of being invited over for dinner every now and then!  Nicole?s recipe for Cherokee Rose Pound Cake is based on the state flower from her home state.  It is a moist dense cake with a delicate rose flavor which is hard to resist!  -Kristina About Nicole: Georgia-native Nicole A.
