Entertainer Taylor Hicks tastes his way across Virginia, in search of the state’s most iconic foods. First, he learns the art of growing the perfect peanut. Then, Taylor fishes for sugar toads, Virginia’s puffiest fish. Next, he learns how to cure a Virginia ham, using simple salt and pepper. Later, Taylor weighs-in on the biggest flounder caught at a long-running tournament. Finally, he learns the origins of the cocoa bean and brews up a rich cup of hot chocolate, Colonial Williamsburg-style. It’s a heaping helping of country heritage and tradition, as we taste the Old Dominion State’s most celebrated foods.
