About Us


hi! we’re jon and jamie, the husband and wife duo behind garlic & grits.

this site is a place for us to share the way we combine our northern and southern cooking styles.  jon grew up in alabama and south carolina, and loves to grill, smoke, and fry anything he can.      i am from an italian-portuguese family in new england so seafood, pasta, and chourico are more of my style.

join us as we cook our way through old family recipes and experiment with  few of our own!
