I asked Murilee Johnson, the subject of this week’s Omnivorous, if I could come into her kitchen at Turner’s Family Soul Food in Auburn Gresham and film her cooking her magic chicken and dumplings. She responded by fixing a plate of nearly everything on the menu. It was too much for me to film, but it didn’t go to waste–she’d also invited a crowd of friends and longtime customers to polish everything off.

Don’t forget to check this week’s listings, where we have reviews of the city’s most legendary soul food restaurants– and some of the young upstarts too.
