Birmingham, AlabamaSeries Website »
Episode Guide »
The cuisine served by Chef Frank Stitt at Birmingham's Highlands Bar & Grill showcases Gulf seafood, splendid Alabama produce and Southern staples. It's both all-American and very French-as if Alabama were sandwiched somewhere between Mississippi and Provence. Chef Stitt's fine ingredients come from a surprising place: a former parking lot in the middle of town that has been cleansed, refurbished and turned back into farmland. Recipes: Leeks in Farm Egg Vinaigrette; Deep South Fall Vegetable Ragout.
