Whistle Stop Cafe Recipes
These excerpts are from the back of the box of fruit fritter mix.
“These are the same recipes my family and I have enjoyed for years~ down-home and delicious!” Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
“On a lazy afternoon eighty years ago, at a whistle stop nestled beside the tracks just east of Birmingham, a tradition of down-home cooking was born. That’s when the first batch of fried green tomatoes was served at the Irondale Cafe. Some fifty years later, Fannie Flagg would write a book about that same whistle stop and the recipes perfected over thousands of meals shared with family and friends. Today the Irondale Cafe seems frozen in time as those giant freight and passenger trains rumble by. The cafe still carries on the legacy of down-home family cooking, and for over eighteen years Bill and Mary Jo have offered their delicious secrets with their “Original Whistlestop Recipes.” From their heart to your table, enjoy the memories of good times shared at the Original Whistle Stop Cafe.”
