Southern Foodways Alliance Brings Potlikker Film Fest to Chattanooga

Reporting: Monessa Guilfoil

Southern Foodways Alliance brought the Potlikker Film Festival to town and to celebrate food culture in Chattanooga, St. John’s Restaurant, Zarzour’s Cafe and Link 41 Sausage also participated in bringing Chattanoogans a night of artisan foods, food films by Joe York and live entertainment by Gerle Haggard.

Southern Foodways Alliance said about this event:

Featuring blazing-hot and icebox-cold fried chicken by Daniel Lindley of St. John’s restaurant. And whole hog bbq pork tacos – using hogs from Sequatchie Cove Farm and Riverview Farms – from Drew Robinson of Jim ‘N Nick’s. Shannon Fuller of Zarzour’s Café will pour potlikker and slice lemon icebox pies. Expect bites from Trae Moore and Tom Montague of Link 41. And sips from Chattanooga Brewery.

The Southern Foodways Alliance has a Staff of 5 people who work from the University of Mississippi in Oxford and over 800 members from all over the South including writers, eaters, chefs and academics.

We stage events, produce documentary films, publish compendiums of great writing, and – perhaps most important – document and map our region’s culinary standard bearers through oral history interviews. We’re talking fried chicken cooks, barbecue pitmasters, bartenders, ham curers, and row crop farmers.

SFA Director John T. Edge and Sara Roahen have also edited the “Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook.”
