The Country Cat enticed Iron Chef winner Brad Farmerie with its home cooking and warm hospitality, but the cast-iron skillet fried chicken and red flannel hash keep him coming back. The shatteringly crisp fried chicken is served with an insane pecan-topped spoon bread that Chef Farmerie calls “layers and layers and layers of delight.” The red flannel hash, is a bright mixture of red beets and corned beef bound with sour cream and seasoned with freshly grated horseradish. The fuchsia mixture is pressed in a hot pan until it is an amalgamation of crispy, crunchy bits and then topped with a fried egg.

Guy also spoke highly of the fried chicken. "It's everything you want fried chicken to be," he said.
