Detroit News Plugs Morgan Freeman's Restaurant

Who'd expect the Detroit News to write about Southern cooking or Memphis native Morgan Freeman? Yet the paper's Steve Austin, in his column "Fave Foods of the Famous," did just that recently.

He called Freeman and Bill Luckett's restaurant Madidi, in Clarksdale, Mississippi, "one of the nation’s finest."

In a Q&A with the Academy Award-winning actor, Austin asks where you could "enjoy a meal of true Southern food at a restaurant NOT located in the South," Freeman tells him you can't. "I don't order Chinese food in Italy," he says. "If you want the real thing, you have to go to the roots."

To read the interview and see a recipe from Madidi chef Lee Craven, go to the Detroit News website.
