Southern Food Documentaries

Today was a stuck on the couch and surf the Internet day for me.

I came across the Southern Foodways Alliance website thanks to a post over at Adrenaline’s Shadow about her craving for a hot sausage sandwich from The Big Apple Inn in Jackson, Mississippi. Maybe more importantly, she didn’t order the pig ear sandwich. What she did do was link to a documentary about the restaurant called Smokes and Ears. Wonderful stuff.

Thanks to those two sites, I’m now craving barbecue because of the documentaries by Joe York at the SFA site. He shot one about the art of Whole Hog barbecuing in Lexington which is about 40 miles from my locale here in Hoots. If it hadn’t been for all the rain and flooding today, there might just have been a road trip.

These are some amazing docs. I haven’t watched them all yet, but the man is good at what he does. It’s an excellent mix of music, visuals and interviews. He even has one about Prince’s hot chicken in Nashville.

I’ll be settling in and watching all these over the next day or so. I recommend you do the same.
