Central Georgia Corner Cafe Series Part 3 – Kountry Kitchen

The Kountry Kitchen in Twiggs County is the kind of lunch place where everybody knows your name.

“I see people I know all the time from up here. I meet people up here all the time that I already knew”, said longtime patron Cody Young.

Maurice James, the owner of the Kountry Kitchen, is from the area.

“A lot of the local people I do know and they’re cheering me on with the food and everything. They’re proud of me and I’m proud to be in the community,” said James.

He says the Kountry Kitchen is an extension of his own, “I’ve been cooking just for a long time, grandma’s recipes, aunts, uncles. Learned from them and when I got the opportunity to move here, we just did our thing”.
