In the season finale of Food Grails, Miss Info and First We Feast head down to Atlanta to explore the city’s love for lemon pepper wings. From Magic City to J.R. Crickets, Miss Info learns about the origin of lemon pepper wings, and how rap music, strip clubs and, more recently, Atlanta has turned the finger-lickin’ dish into a local delicacy. Donald Glover, Waka Flocka Flame and Wing Stop CEO Rick Ross explain what makes lemon pepper wings so great, while writer and ATL native Rembert Browne hosts a backyard taste test to decide who has the best lemon pepper wings in town.

In episode four of First We Feast‘s Food Grails, Miss Info heads down to New Orleans to explore the unique Vietnamese po’ boy movement. Local legend Curren$y explains the origins of the po’ boy while farmer Khai Nguyren and Banh Mi Boys chef Peter Nguyen shed insight on how the line between the local po’ boy and the Vietnamese bánh mì have become blurred since the Vietnam war. Through something as simple as a sandwich, two communities have realized they have more in common than you might think.

We’re back with another episode of First We Feast and Miss Info’s Food Grails series! This time, they hit up our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., on a quest to get to the bottom of the city’s “Mumbo Sauce” mystery. Popularized in hood Chinese restaurants, the sweet and tangy sauce has become the trade mark of fried chicken spots in the DMV area.

For the first episode of Food Grails, my new show with the good folks at First We Feast, we went out to South L.A., Compton, Watts and Leimert Park to meet the new wave of hood entrepreneurs. Many are former hustlers or gang members who are now making their own Americanized version of the Mexican food that everyone in L.A. grows up on. These guys are social media stars and favorites of the local hip-hop artists (like Jay 305 and Casey Veggies) that relate to their struggle.

Watch the season premiere above and check back for new episodes dropping every Wednesday at 11am ET.

Starting with a glass of red wine imported from France, Bronson shows Meyers how to make a black truffle burger with a side of white truffle for dessert. Watch the action below and catch F*ck That’s Delicious every Thursday at 10 p.m. EST on VICELAND.

First We Feast‘s Hot Ones series is one of my favorite things on the Internet (pro tip: watch it just before your lunch break to really work up an appetite). T-Pain is one of my favorite people, on and off the Internet. So when I saw the latest episode of Hot Ones pop up on YouTube featuring none other than Mr. Rapper Turnt Sanga I was sold. And it doesn’t disappoint.

Atlanta king Big Boi recently gave FirstWeFeast a breakdown of all his favorite late night spots in the A. When your night doesn’t start until 11pm, you know it’s going to be a long one. These days, though, 1/2 of Outkast likes to keep things more mellow — and he still swears by strip club food.

“Strip clubs have got some of the best food,” Big Boi says. “Magic City or The Cheetah might have the best kitchens. [But all of them usually] serve everything from lobster to steak. You know what I’m saying?” It’s an all-inclusive trip.

Anyone who’s even vaguely familiar with Action Bronson will know he’s equally as skilled in the kitchen as he in the booth. With his food show Fuck, That’s Delicious currently whetting appetites on VICELAND, the Queens chef-turned-rapper put his culinary skills to the test on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Despite being “scared” by seafood as a kid (hey, who wasn’t?), Bam Bam treated Seth to a delicious looking octopus dish over a glass of rosé. Bon appétit!

Bronson has plenty more on his plate this year, including a new mixtape called Blue Chips 7000 and his very own cookbook.
