Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)

"Fried Green Tomatoes" is two stories in one. First a menopausal and overweight housewife Evelyn (Kathy Bates) who's life is spinning out of control. Then an elderly, wise and lovable woman name Ninny (Jessica Tandy) who lives in a nursing home. The two women meet and the tale of Idgie and Ruth from Ninny's past is told. Our recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes pays tribute to the "Whistle Stop" diner portrayed in the film. Please enjoy the video clip below. It shows when Idgie and Ruth opened the diner. Idgie's first attempted at making fried green tomatoes was a bust, but we have put our touches on it and now its the "bomb."
