The winner at the Crossroads Film Festival this weekend in Jackson for best MS-made film (Ruma award) was Smokes & Ears by Joe York. It’s a short film about the Big Apple Inn in Jackson, where they serve…among other things…hot smoked sausage sandwiches, and pig ear sandwiches.
It was announced late February that Scott Peacock was leaving Watershed in Atlanta (okay, Decatur). When the NYT reported about it, they said that he was going to work on “a documentary based on oral histories of Alabama’s oldest residents and their food memories. He also wants to write books, including a memoir partly about his longtime relationship with Edna Lewis”. Has anyone heard anything else?
