Kathryn Stockett, author of the best-selling novel The Help, and Tate Taylor, who wrote and directed the novel's film adaptation, arrive at the Malco Grandview theater in Madison. / Joe Ellis/The Clarion-Ledger
The premiere of The Help was this Saturday in Madison. And, par for the course, most of what the stars remember from their time in Mississippi...the heat (and the food, too, of course!). Those of you who have read the book will know that one certain pie in the book becomes (almost) a character on its own, so it's very fitting!
In a story for The Clarion-Ledger, Leigh Cummins catalogs the food most fondly recalled:
- Sweet tea
- Fried chicken
- Banana pudding
- Caramel cake
