This morning, Food News writer Pam Denney and I made one last round through the vendors' section of the Southern Food & Wine Festival.
This is the owner of Mama Turney's Homemade Pies. The pies — pecan, chess, lemon chess, and chocolate chess — are amazing. He told us they're available in Memphis at Kroger's.
While we were talking, a man and his family approached the booth. There was some back-and-forth involving the man, a pie, and a stick (to keep his family away from the pie).
We also stopped at the Williams Sausage booth. They're made in Union City, and we were informed that if we eat sausage in Memphis, chances are they're Williams'.
Also spotted: this University of Tennessee-fied grill at the Viking booth. To each his own.
Read more about the festival in the Food News column in the print edition of the Flyer, hitting the stands on Wednesday.
