Southern cooking is a melting pot of rich culinary traditions seasoned with a colorful regional history and an iconic array of local ingredients. The heart of this proud regional cookery is revealed in the prized recipes of home cooks and their legendary Southern hospitality. Here we celebrate this tradition with delicious recipes for down-home summer dining. Featured recipes include Southern fried chicken, classic shrimp and grits and burgers with pimento cheese. Inspiration comes from the Southern Foodways Alliance, a nonprofit institute dedicated to celebrating and documenting the diverse food cultures of the American South.
