Making Grits Old School Bill & his My Cousin Vinny

Old School Foods of the South is a  Gibsonton Florida cooking show  intended  to present TravBuddies  around the world with the preparation & cooking of food from small town southern Florida.  The host of the show Old School Bill replaces the usual celebrity chef, preparing one or more dishes over the course of the show, taking TravBuddies through the shopping & food's preparation showing all intermediate stages of cooking.  Shows are intended to be at least partly educational, as Old School teaches the Non Southern viewing audience how to prepare different meals they have never heard of or have only a vague idea of what they really are.  While very rarely achieving top ratings or in some cases any audience at all, cooking shows have been a popular staple of daytime TV.
They are generally very inexpensive to produce (You Got to Eat Anyway), making them a cheap I mean economically easy way for a TV station to fill a half-hour  TV episode in the highly competitive Gibsonton , Florida TV market.

Old School Hush Puppies & Cat Fish

A number of cooking shows have run for many seasons, especially when they are sponsored by local TV stations, by public broadcasting or Gibsonton Bait & Beauty Shop. Many of the more popular cooking shows have had flamboyant hosts see Bubba Begonia whose unique personalities have made them into celebrities in their own minds.

Wild catfish normally have a strong taste as they eat whatever is on the bottom, I have heard them called mudfish. I don’t eat the catfish out of my canal which is saltwater. Fresh water farm raised catfish has a less "fishy" taste & milder taste. Fried is the only way I have ever cook catfish.
