SouthBound: Erika Council On Family, Destiny, And The Secrets To A Great Biscuit

erika_council_1.png

Erika Council grew up among food royalty.

One of her grandmothers owned the classic soul-food restaurant Mama Dip’s in Chapel Hill. And now Erika has found her own prominent place in Southern food, especially through her biscuits, the centerpiece of her Bomb Biscuits pop-up meals in Atlanta.

But it wasn’t a smooth path from there to here. Council intended to stay out of the food business. But it drew her back in, and that story is what we explore in this episode.

Let's keep the conversation going. Who do you want to hear from next on the SouthBound podcast?
