"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

For the biscuits:
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
8 tablespoon cold salted butter, cubed
1 cup buttermilk

For the sausage gravy:
1 pound ground pork sausage
3 garlic cloves, minced
cup all purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper

Sausage Gravy
Yield: 6 servings.

1 pound ground pork sausage
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
3 cups whole milk
teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon hot sauce
teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
(Instructions for This Gravy: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage until no longer pink. Add butter to the pan and stir. Reduce heat to medium and stir in the flour. Cook for 2 minutes.
Slowly pour the milk into the sausage mixture, whisking constantly until smooth. Whisk in the seasonings. Taste the gravy and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve over biscuits).

Preheat oven to 475F.

For the biscuits: Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cube butter and use hands to work into the dry ingredients. Work until the texture resembles cornmeal.

Add buttermilk, cup at a time, stirring well.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Pat into a large rectangle, fold the dough, and pat out again. Repeat this process 4-5 times, creating layers in your biscuits. Pat flat into a half-inch thick rectangle. Use a biscuit cutter to cut 8-10 biscuits.

Bake on a greased pan for 15-17 minutes, until biscuits have risen and cooked through and are golden brown on top.

For the sausage gravy: While your biscuits are baking, cook sausage and minced garlic in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook for 4-5 minutes until sausage is browned.

Stir flour into sausage and cook until the flour is completely mixed into sausage.

Whisk milk into sausage and flour, stirring quickly as gravy thickens. Remove from heat and season with sea salt and pepper.

Top biscuits with hot gravy and serve.
