Welcome to Okracast, the podcast of the Southern Foodways Alliance! This week, Desiree Robinson of Cozy Corner BBQ in Memphis, TN pays homage to her mother. Mrs. Robinson says that she started cooking at eight years old, and after all these years, she still loves her mother’s cornbread recipe. Also, SFA lead oral historian Amy Evans takes us to the Mississippi Delta for a visit with Leann Hines. Mrs. Hines owns Levee Run Farms just outside of Greenwood, MS, where she raises farm-fresh eggs as well as pastured poultry of all kinds. In 2007, Mrs. Hines fell ill. She was diagnosed with West Nile poliomyelitis and consigned to a wheelchair. Mrs. Hines discusses her battles with polio and how she’s modified her lifestyle—and farm—to accommodate.
