In a funny interview with Bon Appétit, Southern boy Ed Helms is all about the gravy and biscuits; praising his mama’s cauliflower with “like a bucket of cheese sauce on it”; and convincing any fried-food skeptics that even when it’s wrong, it’s right: “I don’t agree with the diet police on this one. Those of us who have tried Southern food and love it should stick with it. Even if it’s not good for the body, it’s good for the soul.” [Bon Appétit]
