Fried Green Tomato

Fried green tomatoes were a somewhat obscure icon of the southern kitchen for decades before Fannie Flagg’s best-selling 1991 novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe and its subsequent film version made them known to Americans beyond the South. They continue as a symbol of homespun southern cooking, though frequently now they are used as a downhome note in an upscale dish: a base for crab cakes, folded into a deluxe BLT, or a puckery layer in eggs Benedict.
