Today’s episode is a bit different. Usually we focus on farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, and well…you know the deal. But today, we are talking about food. Specifically, the unique qualities of Southern Cuisine. I might be a little biased having lived in the south my whole life, but Southern food is absolutely amazing. Catfish, greens, fried green tomatoes, cornbread, oysters, and a loooooot more. But the Southern food scene is much more diverse than you might think. Our guest today is Stephanie Burt of the podcast, The Southern Fork. Stephanie is a food and beverage writer and podcaster that highlights the outstanding chefs, farmers, restaurateurs, bakers, and others revolutionizing the food scene here in the south. This episode was a ton of fun as Stephanie and I geek out about Southern Food, podcasting, and some North Florida landmarks. Be sure to check out Stephanie’s podcast!
