Accomplished Chef & Storyteller Visits Roadhouse

The Roadhouse is gearing up for Martha Foose, executive chef at the Viking Cooking School, owner of the Mockingbird Bakery in Greenwood, MS, expert storyteller and all-around great personality who will be a special guest on May 20 at 7pm for a special dinner promoting her new book Screen Doors and Sweet Tea. An active participant in the Southern Foodways Alliance, Martha is already a great friend of the Roadhouse, and we’re happy to have her back.

Martha’s accomplishments preceed her, and we’ve accessed some videos of Martha in action! Here she is talking about making really flavorful croissants with Robert St. John of Eating the South. And, again, sharing with us how to fry up catfish!

The excitement carries into our specials for May 15-21. The Roadhouse chefs will craft a menu from Martha’s book and their selections will be featured on the weekly specials at the top of the Roadhouse lunch and dinner menus as well as listed online.
