Andrew Zimmern Visits Mama Jo’s

8 Mar

This past Saturday (and again on Wednesday since his tastebuds were calling him back for more), Andrew Zimmern, host of the popular Travel Channel Show “Bizarre Foods America,” visited Mama Jo’s at 1503 N. Lamar Blvd. to film the restaurant’s offerings for a new show Zimmern is working on that pays tribute to regional foods.

Oxonian John T. Edge, director of the Southern Foodways Alliance, joined Zimmern at Mama Jo’s and both enjoyed a buffet of home-cooked Southern food, including fried corn bread, smothered pork chops, neck bones, Rotel chicken, catfish, turnip greens, boiled okra and veggies.
