    167: Cindy Tarvin, Tarvin Seafood (Mt. Pleasant, SC)

    These days, Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC, is known more for its bars and restaurants, but there was a time in a not-too-distant past when shrimp boats dominated the landscape. Some boats are still here, down the creek a bit, where the discussions about ice and weather float over the tides, and Cindy Tarvin of Tarvin Seafood is still holding down the fort on the Wando dock. In a changing sea -- literally -- she and her family are sailing on.

    166: Ali Rosen, Potluck with Ali (New York, NY)

    There are some people you just want to hang out in the kitchen with. Ali Rosen is one of those people, and she knew the kitchen was where she belonged from a young age. If you’re in NYC then you’re lucky enough to get a window into her kitchen life on her TV show on NYC Life, Potluck with Ali, and the rest of us can spot her regularly on Dr. Oz . She has a cookbook, a vibrant, full life, she’s a native Charlestonian, and her passion for cooking and learning is infectious.

    165: Greg Collier, Uptown Yolk, Leah & Louise (Charlotte, NC)

    Years ago, I heard about this breakfast place in Rock Hill, SC where people were lining up to get in the door. I never got there, but when Greg Collier moved that restaurant, The Yolk, to Charlotte, NC, and was nominated for James Beard’s Best Chef: South while cooking at Loft & Cellar, my chance to say “I knew him when” was long past. His fun-loving style and outgoing nature are just part someone driven by intelligent research and ability to build community through Soul Food Sessions.

    164: Anne Byrn, Cookbook Author (Nashville, TN)

    It’s a decent bet that if you have a cookbook shelf, one of Anne Byrn’s books is most likely on it. She’s authored 14, including the NYT-best selling The Cake Doctor, recently named No. 18 on Southern Living’s list of the 100 most important cookbooks of our time. Her newest book, Skillet Love, takes on the cast iron skillet, so we sat down with her dog Ella by her side to chat about a life lived through cookbooks.

My new obsession

I moved to South Carolina and now that my daughter is at Ole Miss I’ve been on a quest to explore the roll food plays in southern culture by following SFA and John T Edge. Listening to Stephanie on The Southern Fork has been a great way to learn about foodways closer to my home in Fort Mill, SC. Stephanie has a playful yet journalistically refined style that is a pleasure to listen to. Rarely is one episode enough in a sitting. Keep up the good work! Hope to meet you at an event soon.

My favorite podcast!

I only recently learned of Southern Fork and it’s quickly become my favorite podcast. I now look forward to my long commute to and from work because I can catch up on past episodes.
Stephanie is well educated and well spoken. She delivers a podcast with ease- you’d never know by listening what a regular podcast entails.
I highly recommend even if you don’t consider yourself a foodie. It’s educational and entertaining regardless
Thanks Stephanie
