Soul Food is sure to have your mouth watering. This section of Southern Edition will inspire you to embark on an unforgettable culinary journey -- southern style. The South is all about the food, baby!
Yes, there are distinctions between southern cuisine and the "soul food" of African American tradition, but both have a way of evoking the same passionate response a fiery preacher might elicit from his "amen" corner. And, for that reason, Southern Edition's food section has earned its "Soul Food" moniker.
Just think about fried chicken, country ham, pit barbecue, mountain trout, Lowcountry boil, buttermilk biscuits, cane molasses, sawmill gravy, Brunswick stew, cheese grits, Cajun gumbo, fried okra, collard greens, dumplings, red beans & rice, fried green tomatoes, Vidalia onions, icebox watermelon, peach cobbler and home-churned vanilla ice cream. Whew! Oh, and don't forget to wash it all down with iced tea (the sweet kind, that is!).
Be careful, though. With all the wonderful food the South has to offer, you just might hurt yourself!
