Summary
"In a tiny area of Southside Virginia along the Brunswick and Lunenburg County line, this documentary tells about a most unusual and distinctive folk heritage stew, cooked by stewmasters using mutton, stale bread, onions and potatoes. The recipe is one of the closest, in its purest form, to the original Jimmy Matthews Brunswick stew cooked with squirrel. In the center of town a sign proudly boasts that Dundas is the 'Home of the world's best sheep stew: a gastronomical delight.' This film documents one of the last stews cooked over wood fire on the coldest night ever recorded in Dundas. ... The 'gastronomic delight' is only cooked twice a year ... to help raise money for ... community service projects. This arduous, 12 hour cooking of culled sheep in four 80 gallon cast iron pots requires five shifts and as many as 20 men. ...
