Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie

North Carolina: BBQ and Beyond


Episode 25

We’ll show you what southern cooking is all about, and it’s not just grits and gravy. We’ll travel to North Carolina where we see the old-style tradition of barbecue come alive with legendary pitmaster Ed Mitchell. Next, we’ll visit an eco-friendly trout farm in the Appalachian Mountains and experience the unique combination of Asian and barbecue cuisine at The Lantern, a famous restaurant in Chapel Hill. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, we’re sharing a recipe that no one can resist: okra fritters.
