On a lazy afternoon sixty years ago, at a whistle stop nestled beside the tracks just east of Birmingham, a tradition of down-home cooking was born. That’s when the first batch of fried green tomatoes was served at the Irondale Café. Some 50 years later, Fannie Flagg would write a book about that same whistle stop and the recipes perfected over thousands of meals shared with family and friends.
