We are looking at mindfulness in the kitchen this week with Dan Harris, best-selling author of 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge and Found Self-Help that Actually Works -- A True Story. We talk to the Martha Stewart of Australia, Donna Hay, chef Ronna Welsh tells us how to reduce waste in the kitchen, and the Sterns fill us in on Arkansas fried pies.

Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood

The 2013 Roadfood tour of Memphis and Arkansas cruised into De Valls Bluff on a Saturday, which is definitely the right day. Saturday (and, often, Friday) is when Ms. Lena's offers fried pies. Other days of the week, you might be able to stop in this tiny roadside bakery for chocolate pie, lemon ice box pie, coconut cream pie, sour cream apple pie, egg custard pie, etc.; and what we have sampled from the regular-pie repertoire is four-star, world-class excellent. But the fried pies are even better than that -- the best fried pies we've ever had.
