Synopsis by Madeline Cavalieri
The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode heads south for some real home cookin'. Recipes include Pickled Peaches, Southern Ham, Pecan Pie, Sweet Potato Soufflé, and Chicken Brunswick Stew. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
