Southern Review – PaPa MoJo’s Roadhouse

MOJO

Driving down I-10, roll down the windows as you cross the Atchafalaya Basin and listen to the rhythms of the road mixed with the natural melodies of the swamp and soul of the muddy muddy smell of the Lousiana waterways.  Those beautiful rich sights and sounds are melded into the local Zydeco music, just like those of the neighboring Delta Blues.  Mel Melton and The Wicked Mojo’s new album PaPa Mojo’s Roadhouse is a great new example of Southern Zydeco and Blues fusion.  So why is the Hungry Southerner interested?  Mel Melton is also a great Southern Chef who infuses the spirit of his music into his Creole cuisine.

Southern Review – Bacon Marmalade

Bacon

It’s no secret that The Hungry Southerner has a passion for all things pork, especially bacon.  Recently we’ve developed a love affair with a wonderful little 4oz jar of deliciousness better known as Bacon Marmalade.  It was a pure accident that we met, I discovered Bacon Marmalade through a fellow blogger, Liza de Guia, at Food Curated.  I quickly contacted the Bacon Marmalade website, and waited patiently for our 3 precious jars to arrive.  We did a short preview to help manage our own excitement and three of the “Hungry Southerners” set off to figure out what to do with our Bacon Marmalade. Here’s our review of a Southern Food, born out of a happy accident.
