2 Ep 24: Eating in Athens - Seabear Oyster Bar (sound is really not great on this one, sorry)
Our first stop on our eating in Athens tour was Seabear Oyster Bar, where we sat down with Chef Patrick, and his partner Peter, about the Athens dining scene.
We talked about what to eat in Athens, from the high-end dining spots to the greasy spoons. Of course, it took a little more prodding to get the low down on the college dining scene. I wanted to visit Athens because it is a fun college town. I loved our food at Seabear, but I wanted to pretend to be a college student for a few days! And Chef Patrick and Peter didn't disappoint with their recommendations
2 Ep 22: Memphis BBQ at Central BBQ
We went to Memphis for one thing really. The top of our list of things to do in Memphis was eat BBQ. When doing our research, one place kept coming up as one of the best Memphis BBQ joints: Central BBQ.
We arrived just before lunch time to talk Memphis BBQ with Rodger Sapp, one of the owners of Central BBQ. From his early beginnings, eating BBQ with his father, to becoming passionate about BBQ, it all lead him to Central BBQ.

2 Ep 23: Macon BBQ - The Best Rub for Your Butt
In the lead up to the #USChowDown, there were was one story we anticipated telling that we were super excited, and a little anxious, about telling. The story is the one that leads us to showing up in Georgia, as guests of honor at a Macon BBQ party, hosted by a person who claims to make the Best Rub For Your Butt - Mama Honey's Hiney Rub
2 Ep 21: Baton Rouge Craft Beer
Looking for something to do in Louisiana, before noon, on a weekday? How about drinking down a few pints of Baton Rouge craft beer. That's just what we did when we met Joe from Southern Craft Brewing Company. When he's not a project manager for large oil and gas clients, he's brewing beer, just through the back door of his uniquely located tasting room. We pulled off the highway, and wound our way to the back of an industrial park, and there's where we found the Southern Craft Brewing Company. We talked with Joe about his transition from home brewer to official brew master. And, he's off and running with award winning beers with names like Pompous Pelican, Red Stick Ryle, and Swamp Sting.

2 Ep 20: Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge
As soon as we bit into the first bit of a breakfast sandwich at Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge, we knew we had to learn the story behind this little bit of donut heaven in Louisiana. Jeff of Tiger Deaux-Nuts explained just what was on one of the best breakfast sandwiches we've ever eaten. First off, it included a special sausage, and it was sandwiched between two slices of their famous donuts.
Jeff was a man with a dream. A donut dream. On this week's episode of our food travel podcast, not only did we talk about a locally famous breakfast sandwich, but we learned how he came up with the idea of creating an artisan donut shop in Baton Rouge.

2 Ep 19: Talking BBQ and Culinary Travel with Jay Ducote (part 2)
Part 2 of our chat with Jay Ducote, the unofficial food mayor of Baton Rouge. Whereas our first episode talked about Jay's transition from typical office worker to food TV celebrity, this episode focuses on food travel. And, in particular BBQ and food travel.
Our chat with Jay quickly turned from BBQ to Louisiana food specialties, including a special local sausage. We don't want to give too much away as there will be special episode and blog post later about boudin. Jay also provides his advice on what to eat in Baton Rouge, including oysters which rival those available in New Orleans. We talked with Jay about local Baton Rouge chefs and their restaurants, focusing on local cuisine and use of fresh, local ingredients.
