Delectable fudge. Crispy peanut brittle. Gooey chocolate-covered cherries. Old- fashioned caramels. It’s the stuff of holiday memories… with a little bit of a twist. Doing what she does best, Chef Vivian Howard hosts her own vision of the season’s celebrations, exploring holiday traditions, Kinston, NC style.
Vivian visits a Kinston institution that merges cornbread with another Southern signature to make “pig and a puppy,” then crafts a version for a charity dinner. Mrs. Scarlett and Ms. Lillie’s cornbread cook-off showcases their different traditions.
In the fifth season of this award-winning series, Vivian hits the road in a food truck to support her first cookbook, a 500-page “culinary love letter.” Chasing Trout Vivian plans a respite from the road during the holidays, but is busy at home.
