Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
June 12, 1929
The Whistle Stop Cafe opened up last week, right next door to me at the post office, and owners Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamison said business has been good ever since. Idgie says that for people who know her not to worry about getting poisoned, she is not cooking. All the cooking is being done by two colored women, Sipsy and Onzell, and the barbecue is being cooked by Big George, who is Onzell’s husband.
