The southern portion of the United States is known for its heat, its charm, and most certainly for its unbeatable food. It’s hard to beat classic Southern cooking, and Chef Addie Gundry takes you through a few of the highlights on the menu. First of all, you can’t start off any road trip through the south without trying some of their irresistible homemade fried chicken. No one serves that dish any better. And if you’re on a roll with frying foods, you’ll love our recipe for hush puppies, perfect to serve as an appetizer or side dish. Our trip down south continues with a stopover in Texas where warm, crunchy Frito pie is on the menu. And you can’t leave without trying some authentic New Orleans–style jambalaya. And for dessert? Well, we’re ready to celebrate one of Georgia’s most plentiful crops: pecans! Serve up a slice of pecan pie with or without a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream. Get ready to whet your appetite with a Southern menu that can’t be beat.
