Fried Okra & Ranch Ice Cream in Kinston, NCFried foods are a Southern staple that've been perfected over generations. Chef Vivian Howard elevates and modernizes this fried shared plate with a side of an otherworldy cup of ranch ice cream that's creamy, cold, tangy and a fun yet tantalizing counterbalance to the salty, light and crispy fried locally grown okra. The combination tastes like a savory ice cream bar that eases the summer humidity. Now if only the Chef would package that ranch ice cream in our local grocers' freezers!
