Rhoda Adams of Rhoda's Famous Hot Tamales
Stills from Southern Food: The Movie

Greetings from the road! Joe York and I have been traveling around Arkansas for the last week working on Southern Food: The Movie. On Thursday, we had the pleasure of visiting with Rhoda Adams in Lake Village at her restaurant, Rhoda’s Famous Hot Tamales. We spent the day filming and putting together a short spot on the restaurant that will appear on the SFA website later this year. We made a trip to South Carolina in February and will be stopping in every Southern state this year to film spots for Southern Food: The Movie, a project that will showcase the best of Southern food produced by a span of folks, from traditionalists like Rhoda to chefs and farmers across the region. This week we will attend a wild game dinner and investigate spoonbill caviar from the White River near Dumas.
