The Buford Highway Oral History Project "explores old Atlanta Highway 13, stretching 30-odd miles from Atlanta to suburban Buford, Georgia." Southern Foodways Alliance says the "international corridor is jam-packed with strip malls featuring native cuisines of varied immigrant populations, one next door to another" and takes a look at the stories "of first- and second-generation immigrants who brought the foods of their homelands with them and were often inspired by other traditions they encountered in Georgia."

Head over to the project's webpage to hear interviews with Harold Shinn of Buford Highway Farmers Market, Hieu Pham of Crawfish Shack Seafood, retired restaurateur Frank Ma, Panahar's Mirza Chowdhury, and Taqueria del Sol's Eddie Hernandez.
