"It kinda happened by accident," said company rep. Tina McCune. "Their craft services vehicle broke down outside Boone County where Johnny Depp had flown in to start filming the new movie and one of their locally-hired body guards called us in a panic. The guys were regulars and figured we could hook them up.
"We supplied breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks -- anything they needed. They kept us on our toes that month. It turns out Jesco White and Johnny Depp both love bologna, so one morning they jokingly asked if we could work something up for them. And we said, 'of course'! That's what we're calling 'The Jesco' Biscuit. It's a delicious hot bologna biscuit with fried egg and cheese. We think it's going to be hit!"
The new breakfast platter called, "The Outlaw" also has a thick slice of fried bologna, eggs (to order), with fried potatos and fried apples. The bologna is locally produced from SS Logan Packing Co. / Cavalier Meats.
Asked what other favorites the stars had, McCune was reluctant to answer. "I'm not sure if it's confidential or not, but Johnny Depp was also partial to our Ginos Original Hot Wings. And when Jesco wasn't eating bologna, he was gobbling up biscuits and gravy. It's a southern thing."
What about Demi Moore? "We never saw her leave her trailer. I have no idea if she even eats."
"White Trash" slated to be released November of this year is currently on hold for what is being characterized as, "minor legal issues" with the White family. McCune said as soon as the movie release date is back on track, expect Jesco White to be appearing in Tudor's television commericals to pitch the new menu items. "We wanted Johnny Depp, too, but we are still in discussions with his agent. We're promising a life-time supply of hot wings!"
The new breakfast items are currently available in the Charleston / Huntington area and should be available at all Tudor's locations by the end of the month. Be sure to ask for them by name!
The Charleston-based restaurant chain has over 50 locations, most of which are in West Virginia, but also Southern Ohio, Eastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia.
