Smokes & Ears
by Joe York. See the story of the Big Apple Inn in Jackson, Mississippi. Known as “Big John’s” by its faithful customers, the Big Apple Inn’s defining duo of pig ear sandwiches and hot smoked sausage sandwiches (known as “smokes”) has kept folks coming back again and again for over 70 years, and counting. The film is made in recognition of 2009 Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award Winner Geno Lee. (from Southern Foodways Alliance)
Showing tonight at the Food Film Festival @ Water Taxi Beach in LIC (which is, of course, sold out).
