Hickory House ribs

Hickory House Ribs
They're the world's best ribs, according to Colin Cowie! They're from a place called the Hickory House in Aspen, Colorado.

"Whenever I'm on my way to the hotel, I always stop off at the Hickory House from the airport to have these ribs before I check in. They're that delicious.... They're really only good when the sauce is running down your face."

What makes them so delicious? "I think because they're succulent and they're juicy and they're moist and they're overloaded with flavor," Colin says.

Margaux Sky

Margaux Sky's Art Café and Bakery
It was the sandwich that got Oprah to go back to eating bread—and the most expensive one she's ever eaten!

Two and a half years ago, Margaux Sky opened the Art Café and Bakery in San Luis Obispo, California. Her specialty: delicious sandwiches on homemade bread. While business had been steady, she was barely making ends meet. This summer, she decided to sell her café.

Her last to-go order happened to be for Oprah, who was in the area to meet with Tim Bennett, the president of Harpo Productions and Margaux's brother-in-law. Oprah took one bite of Margaux's Curried Chicken Sandwich and was floored.

Margaux was to sign the papers to sell the café at 9 a.m. the next morning—at 8 a.m. she got a call saying that Oprah was going to help out to keep the business open. "I thought, anybody this good can't be closed down," Oprah says. "So I sent Margaux a check, and now she's back in business and cooking like crazy!"

Sweet potato festival in Golden, Texas

Sweet Potatoes
Harold and Annette Simmons, Oprah's dear friends and neighbors in Santa Barbara, California, know how much she loves sweet potatoes. So a while ago, they sent her a bunch of them. "They were the best sweet potatoes I have ever had," Oprah says. Turns out, they're from a small Texas town called Golden, where nine sweet potato farmers—most of them third-generation farmers—harvest about two million pounds of the spuds each year!

Sweet potatoes are so popular in this tiny town of 150, they even have their own special day. It starts with a parade and continues with family games—they even have a bake-off where everything is cooked with sweet potatoes! But the highlight of the sweet potato festival is the auction, which raises money for local needy families.
