Historic Boone Tavern Hotel in our small town of Berea Kentucky, has long been famous for spoonbread. It is so well-known and enjoyed here that we have a Spoonbread Festival each year.
So what is spoonbread, you non-southern folks might ask? It is most easily described as a "cornbread souffle" made from cornmeal, eggs, butter and milk. It is served with a spoon and eaten with a fork. By the way, it is best served hot with lots of butter, as PJ and AJ are enjoying it above.... Yummmmm!
