Alabama Stories: Tasting The South
November 9th, 8 p.m.
Some would argue that southern food is the most recognizable cuisine in the United States. "Tasting the South" will examine the culture of southern cooking - from the history of how it all began to its growing popularity and appeal outside of the South.
In a quest to discover how southern food culture began, its health pros and cons and how southern food’s popularity has grown throughout the country, APT producer/reporter Rhonda Colvin interviews restaurateur Chef Frank Stitt; “Sister Schubert” creator Patricia Barnes; John T. Edge, president of Southern Foodways Alliance; University of Alabama professor Jill Cooley; Southern Living magazine executive food editor Scott Jones; Tuskegee University professor Dr. Ralphenia Pace; and Jones Valley Urban Farm director Edwin Marty.
