Southern Cuisine

I have a confession I’m not a Southerner. My mother grew up in Virginia, but Northern Virginia around Washington D.C. I do have ancestors that were Southeners dating back to before the Civil War, but I am far removed from that time. I have had a long love affair with Southern food as I attempted to recreate those flavors from afar. In 2010 I moved to Northeast Florida as I like to refer to it as Southern Georgia. My love of Southern food coalesced around sourcing Southern ingredients and devouring all that I could from my new friendships. I cooked with some of them, allowed to thumb through recipe boxes and expanded my Southern palate.
