Fried Green Tomatoes, Catfish and Cornbread



Whistle Stop Cafe, Alabama

"By now, the name of the cafe was written on the walls of hundreds of boxcars, from Seattle to Florida".




"For lunch and supper you can have: fried chicken; pork chops and gravy; catfish; chicken and dumplings; or a barbecue plate; and your choice of three vegetables, biscuits or cornbread, and your drink and dessert - for 35c."


Fried green tomatoes and catfish...
"She said the vegetables are: creamed corn; fried green tomatoes; fried okra; collard or turnip greens; black-eyed peas; candied yams; butter beans or lima beans."








Inspired by the Fannie Flagg's book 
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.




See you,

  4. I made fried green tomatoes once and they were great! But serving them with cornbread is an even better idea! :D

  6. Although I didn't go to the Whistle Stop Cafe fried green tomatoes were the first food I went out of my way to find when I visited the south of the US a few years ago. Really enjoyed them too.

    1. I've learned of fried green tomatoes from the book "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle stop cafe" some years ago. And then I tried some fried green tomatoes at the party and really liked it. I've been making it since... (when I can find green tomatoes).

  12. ok, dumb question. Is the Whistle Stop Cafe a real place? Loved the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, and something about this food reminds me of Summer.

    1. There is a Whistle Stop Cafe in Irondale, Alabama that they claim to be original. I love the movie, bit I love the book even more. I've read the book several times and in two different languages...:)
