NASHVILLE: Banana pudding
A favorite dessert in school cafeterias throughout the Mid-South, banana pudding is traditionally made with Nabisco Nilla Wafers. Depending on preparation, the cookies either soften to become streaks of tender grain, or retain a crunch to complement the soft slices of banana and smooth pudding—quintessential comfort food! In the countryside 18 miles southwest of Nashville is Loveless Cafe, once part of the now-defunct Loveless Motel—long known to locals and traveling country musicians for its groaning-table meals of fried chicken and country ham. Here pastry chef Alisa Huntsman goes one better on the banana pudding formula: She makes her own vanilla wafers, which are feather-light. And as the pudding itself is made from scratch, the whole things tastes of homemade deliciousness.
