  • And be sure to listen to the Gravy podcast from the Southern Foodways Alliance…always some interesting info about southern food culture!!

  • I’m reading “The Cooking Gene” right now, which is a tremendous combination of slave history, Southern foodways, and a personal memoir. Highly recommend.

  • I heard a conversation with him on a local NPR show, ‘Louisiana Eats.’ It was a typical driveway moment for me. Afterwards, I came in and started making a big pot of gumbo…

  • Thanks for the info. I’m reading his book now and it’s a very unique but real viewpoint.

  • Found his book on the “new books” shelf in my local library some months ago. Read it with fascination – highly recommend!
