In This Episode: Akila McConnell, owner of Atlanta Food Walks, tells us the history of food in Atlanta. From learning the difference between soul food, southern food, and low-country food, to how a famous restaurant there ties in to the Civil Right’s Movement and Martin Luther King Jr. She also dishes about all the delicious places to eat in downtown Atlanta, including a shop owned by an inspiring female entrepreneur that went from being a Hurricane Katrina evacuee with nothing but a single bag, a pot, and a spoon, to an award winning candy maker.
