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.
