Postcard from The National Cornbread Festival
From: Big Shed Audio
"Oh, I love it. You can't live without corn bread. And you gotta cook it in that skillet, too! ... Corn bread basically was poor man's food that everybody loved. To this day my favorite meal is pinto beans, corn bread and buttermilk." Pour a tall glass of buttermilk and come with us to the National Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, Tennessee. This short, non-narrated postcard is a whirlwind sonic celebration of Southern food and culture.
