Southern Foodways Alliance Documentary Films

Posted By on Fri, Oct 21, 2011 at 12:44 PM

Joe York's documentaries on Southern food, produced by the Southern Foodways Alliance, have been around for a few years, but I just stumbled across them recently. They're all pretty interesting, especially the ones on local favorites Mayo & Mahalia Jackson's Chicken & Fried Pies. The restaurant reopened under a new owner (but with founder E.W. Mayo's recipe) in a drive-thru location on Jefferson St. Have you had their fried pies? They are incredible, possibly better than my grandmother's (and that's the highest compliment I can award).

Also included in the SFA's list of documentaries is a film with Andre Prince Jeffries discussing hot chicken. You'll also find subjects ranging from Ricky Parker, pitmaster at B.E. Scott’s Bar-B-Que in Lexington, Tenn., to the 26th Annual Interstate Mullet Toss, which words cannot do justice (unless those words are "watch people throw fish across state lines"). You'll find the latter below.
