This week, we're doing things a little differently. Marcus asked us all to think about why we love the food we turn to again and again, whether it was our must-go places at home or the classic cold summer treat. And then, we remixed, making them our own. We paid more attention to ingredients like chayote, and talked to Alison Cross, whose Boxcar Grocer rethinks the conventional convenience store. Brined in tea and double-fried, we shook up the quintessential soul food, made in a new way and combining the classic and the personal. Soul food remix, accomplished.
