AlabamaCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Call it country cooking, low country cooking, deep south cooking, or just plain fantastic. Whatever you call it, Alabama cuisine wouldn’t be quite right without a tomato or two on the menu. This is where they really do eat fried green tomatoes, and lots of them. Alabama ranks second only to Mississippi for catfish production, and there are enough peanuts in one acre of farm land to make 30,000 peanut butter cookies. Come visit “Sweet Home” Alabama and find out for yourself.
