Bobby and Jamie Deen to Scour the South for Authentic Eats on Upcoming Road Trip
From Southern traditions to down-home eats and drinks, no one knows the true personalities and flavors of the Deep South quite like Bobby and Jamie Deen. This summer the brothers, both Georgia locals, are teaming up to showcase the culture of their native region, as well as the best-ever culinary treasures in the area, on their all-new upcoming series Southern Fried Road Trip.
Beginning Monday, July 13 at 10|9c, Bobby and Jamie will set off on the ultimate regional adventure as they track down tried-and-true classics, like hearty barbecue ribs, fried green tomato sandwiches and over-the-top burgers, and get to know the local legends who create them. From West Virginia to Louisiana and Mississippi to Georgia, the guys will scour the South for specialty favorites the locals love, all in an effort to celebrate the culture and cuisine for which the South is now known.
In addition to next-level eats, Bobby and Jamie are set to experience one-of-a-kind area attractions, including West Virginia's whitewater rapids and Mississippi's famed blues venues, and surely there will be no shortage of brotherly love as they drive from state to state together and reminisce about their childhood haunts.
