Southern Foodways Potlikker Film Festival 2010, Chattanooga, Tennessee, August 20

Writing a short piece on Summer Recipes and Thirst Quenchers by The Lee Bros I gathered from their Simple Fresh Southern cookbook led me to the Southern Foodways Alliance, a curator of all things Southern food past and present.

Taking the train to Chattanooga, Tennessee to attend the Potlikker Festival 2010 on August 20 would be a good way to slow down from my East Coast rhythm and get into a more leisurely pace.


What's on the program at Warehouse Row from 5-8 PM?

"Featuring blazing-hot and icebox-cold fried chicken by Daniel Lindley of St. John's restaurant. And whole hog bbq pork tacos – using hogs from Sequatchie Cove Farm and Riverview Farms – from Drew Robinson of Jim 'N Nick's. And lots more bites and drinks from local talent.
With smart and short food films by the SFA's own Joe York. And music by Chattanooga's own Gerle Haggard.

With an afternoon detour to Lodge Cast Iron Cookware, in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee, the cast-iron capital of the South (and beyond)."
