In this edition, Hungry Mother's Barry Maiden talks about his signature cornbread, a "real Southern cornbread" topped with sorghum butter. Maiden discusses how he sources the ingredients and prepares the popular dish. "I probably wouldn't be working here anymore — if the cornbread went away, I'd go away with it," says Maiden.
