I watched Feasting on Asphalt
tonight with Alton Brown. In tonight's episode (Fry Me a River), he started out in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He made his way to Natchez where he found some homemade donuts at a drive-thru and some fried catfish and spaghetti at Club 101 during the Blues Fest. From there, he took a short drive on the Natchez Trace
, explaining the history of the its use. Then he stopped in Lorman at the Old Country Store
where he had the all-you-can-eat buffet for $5.95. He raved about the fried chicken there. From there it was on to Vicksburg for a stop at the Biedenharn Candy Company museum
where where Coca-Cola got its start. He explained the chemistry involved in making the drink. He then took a ride thru the Delta and ended up in Greeneville at Jim's Cafe where he feasted on pancakes. In the preview for the next episode, I spotted one of those Kool-Aid pickles
that gained notoriety earlier this year when the New York Times
ran an article on them.
