There's more to a recipe
than a list of ingredients and directions.
There's the love of it handed down from generations.
Southern food is real food. From kitchen to table, it is food with a feeling and taste of homecomings, reunions and of daily livelihood. Cooking southern food is the forefront of cookery of our mainland. From our southern ports, foodstuff from far away made its way to the early French and Spanish colonies and when entwined with the cultures of our Native American ways, that of the colonist and particularly with the influx of African and Caribbean, new and unique cookery evolved. Our recipes migrated across the landscape just as fast as did the change of history.
It is said that Southern Cookery is truly the first American cuisine.
