    The American South is the region of the United States that lies south of the Mason-Dixie line, and ranges from Texas in the West, to the Atlantic Coast in the East. From the most part, the South was part of the Confederacy during the American Civil War (1861 to 1865).

    Southerners are known for both their hospitality and their cooking. Southern cooking offers a hearty and delicious choice of dishes (we have considered African-American cuisine, Cajun and Creole cuisine, and Soul Food cuisine separately).

    Some popular Southern recipes and dishes include:
    • Brunswick stew - A stew based on tomatoes, corn, lima beans, okra and other vegetables. In many traditional recipes, rabbit or squirrel meat are used, but nowadays beef, chicken and pork recipes are also common. Both Georgia (because of the town of Brunswick) and Virginia (because of Brunswick County), have been claimed as being the original source of the stew.

    • Burgoo - This is a stew from Kentucky. It is traditionally made from whatever meats and vegetables were available, and hence in the past often included meat from squirrel, opossum or game birds. Today it is uaully made with chicken, mutton or pork, and is eaten with cornbread (fried bread made from cornmeal) or corn muffins.

    • Chicken fried steak - A piece of beef steak coated with seasoned flour and then fried. It is a popular breakfast item in the South. The dish does not contain chicken, but gets its name because the method of preparation is similar to that used for making fried chicken.

    • Chit'lins - Hog small intestine, cleaned and fried.

    • Country Captain - A chicken curry stew made from chicken and onions, usually with raisins and almonds, and often with other ingredients added. The dish is particularly popular in Georgia and South Carolina.

    • Crab cakes - Patties made from crab meat, breadcrumbs, and seasonings. They are typically fried or broiled.

    • Fried chicken - Chicken coated in seasoned flour and then deep-fried.

    • Fried okra - Okra fried coated with seasoned flour and/or cornmeal, then fried. This dish can be eaten as a side dish or as a snack.

    • Grits - A thick maized-based porridge. It can be eaten with breakfast, or served with fish or meat at dinner.

    • Hoppin' John - Black-eyed peas or field peas, with rice, chopped onion, and bacon. Eating the dish on New Year's Day is supposed to bring a year filled with luck. On the following day (January 2nd), the dish is called "Skippin' Jenny", and eating is supposed to both signify frugality, and improve one's chances of future prosperity.

    • Liver mush - Liver mush is a food stuff made from pig liver with cornmeal, and flavored with pepper and sage. Slices are cut from a loaf of liver mash, and these are cooked in a skillet, or even added to omelette or pizza. Liver mush tends to be particularly popular in North Carolina.

    • Mashed potatoes

    • She-crab soup - This soup from South Carolina's coastal regions is made from milk or cream, with fish stock, Blue crab meat, and crab roe. It is sometimes flavored with a dash of sherry, onions, shallots, and nutmeg. Purée of boiled rice is also sometimes used to thicken the soup. This dish is considered the signature dish of Charleston, South Carolina, and gets its name from the female crab, the eggs (roe) of which are a key ingredient in the soup.
    Some popular Southern desserts include:
    • Key lime pie - A dessert made from key limes (small limes native to the Florida Keys), egg yolks, and sweetened condensed milk in a pie crust. In the Florida Keys, the pie is made also using the egg whites which are used to make a meringue topping. Key lime pie is the official pie of the state of Florida.

      Key lime pie

    • Peanut brittle - A hard and brittle confection made from caramel or sugar-syrup containing peanuts.

    • Pecan pie - > A dessert pie containing a custard made of corn syrup and pecan nuts. Bourbon whiskey or chocolate are also sometimes added to the custard.

    • Franklin Barbecue A Meat Smoking Manifesto
    Product Description:
    A complete meat and brisket-cooking education from the country's most celebrated pitmaster and owner of the wildly popular Austin restaurant Franklin Barbecue.

    When Aaron Franklin and his wife, Stacy, opened up a small barbecue trailer on the side of an Austin, Texas, interstate in 2009, they had no idea what they’d gotten themselves into. Today, Franklin Barbecue has grown into the most popular, critically lauded, and obsessed-over barbecue joint in the country (if not the world)—and Franklin is the winner of every major barbecue award there is.
     
    In this much-anticipated debut, Franklin and coauthor Jordan Mackay unlock the secrets behind truly great barbecue, and share years’ worth of hard-won knowledge. Franklin Barbecue is a definitive resource for the backyard pitmaster, with chapters dedicated to building or customizing your own smoker; finding and curing the right wood; creating and tending perfect fires; sourcing top-quality meat; and of course, cooking mind-blowing, ridiculously delicious barbecue, better than you ever thought possible.

    Product Description:

    From the New York Times bestselling authors at Garden & Gun comes a lively compendium of Southern tradition and contemporary culture.

    The American South is a diverse region with its own vocabulary, peculiarities, and complexities. Tennessee whiskey may technically be bourbon, but don’t let anyone in Kentucky hear you call it that. And while boiling blue crabs may be the norm across the Lowcountry in South Carolina and Georgia, try that in front of Marylanders and they’re likely to put you in the pot.

    Now, from the editors of Garden & Gun comes this illustrated encyclopedia covering age-old traditions and current culture. S Is for Southern contains nearly five hundred entries spanning every letter of the alphabet, with essays from notable Southern writers including:

    • Roy Blount, Jr., on humidity
    • Frances Mayes on the magnolia
    • Jessica B. Harris on field peas
    • Rick Bragg on Harper Lee
    • Jon Meacham on the Civil War
    • Allison Glock on Dolly Parton
    • Randall Kenan on Edna Lewis
    • The Lee Brothers on boiled peanuts
    • Jonathan Miles on Larry Brown
    • Julia Reed on the Delta

    • Deep Run Roots Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South
    Product Description:
    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    WINNER OF AN ASTONISHING FOUR IACP AWARDS, INCLUDING COOKBOOK OF THE YEAR AND THE JULIA CHILD FIRST BOOK AWARD

    Vivian Howard, star of PBS's A CHEF'S LIFE, celebrates the flavors of North Carolina's coastal plain in more than 200 recipes and stories.

    This new classic of American country cooking proves that the food of Deep Run, North Carolina--Vivian's home--is as rich as any culinary tradition in the world.

    Organized by ingredient with dishes suited to every skill level--from beginners to confident cooks--DEEP RUN ROOTS features time-honored simple preparations alongside extraordinary meals from her acclaimed restaurant Chef and the Farmer. Home cooks will find photographs for every single recipe.

    As much a storybook as it is a cookbook, DEEP RUN ROOTS imparts the true tale of Southern food: rooted in family and tradition, yet calling out to the rest of the world.

    Ten years ago, Vivian opened Chef and the Farmer and put the nearby town of Kinston on the culinary map. But in a town paralyzed by recession, she couldn't hop on every new culinary trend. Instead, she focused on rural development: If you grew it, she'd buy it. Inundated by local sweet potatoes, blueberries, shrimp, pork, and beans, Vivian learned to cook the way generations of Southerners before her had, relying on resourcefulness, creativity, and the traditional ways of preserving food.

    DEEP RUN ROOTS is the result of years of effort to discover the riches of Eastern North Carolina. Like The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, The Art of Simple Food, and The Taste of Country Cooking before it, this is landmark work of American food writing.

    Recipes include:
    • Family favorites like Blueberry BBQ Chicken, Creamed Collard-Stuffed Potatoes, Fried Yams with Five-Spice Maple Bacon Candy, Chicken and Rice, and Country-Style Pork Ribs in Red Curry-Braised Watermelon,
    • Crowd-pleasers like Butterbean Hummus, Tempura-Fried Okra with Ranch Ice Cream, Pimiento Cheese Grits with Salsa and Pork Rinds, Cool Cucumber Crab Dip, and Oyster Pie,
    • Show-stopping desserts like Warm Banana Pudding, Peaches and Cream Cake, Spreadable Cheesecake, and Pecan-Chewy Pie,
    • And 200 more quick breakfasts, weeknight dinners, holiday centerpieces, seasonal preserves, and traditional preparations for all kinds of cooks.

    • The South s Best Butts Pitmaster Secrets for Southern Barbecue Perfection
    Product Description:
    In The South’s Best Butts, food writer and Southern gentleman, Matt Moore, waves away clouds of smoke to give barbecue-lovers a sneak peek into the kitchens and smokehouses of a handful of the Barbecue Belt’s most revered pitmasters. He uncovers their tried-and-true techniques gleaned over hours, days, and years toiling by fire and spit, coaxing meltingly tender perfection from the humble pig—the foundation of Southern BBQ. More than a book of recipes, Matt explores how the marriage of meat, cooking method, and sauce varies from place to place based on history and culture, climate, available ingredients and wood, and always the closely-guarded, passed-down secrets followed like scripture. Because no meat plate is complete in the South without “all the fixin’s” to round out the meal, Matt cues up patron-sanctioned recipes from every establishment he visits. One thing is for certain…this book will change the way you cook, smoke, grill, and eat, but be warned: Your own butt may suffer in the process.

    • The Cooking Gene A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South
    Product Description:

    A renowned culinary historian offers a fresh perspective on our most divisive cultural issue, race, in this illuminating memoir of Southern cuisine and food culture that traces his ancestry—both black and white—through food, from Africa to America and slavery to freedom.

    Southern food is integral to the American culinary tradition, yet the question of who "owns" it is one of the most provocative touch points in our ongoing struggles over race. In this unique memoir, culinary historian Michael W. Twitty takes readers to the white-hot center of this fight, tracing the roots of his own family and the charged politics surrounding the origins of soul food, barbecue, and all Southern cuisine.

    From the tobacco and rice farms of colonial times to plantation kitchens and backbreaking cotton fields, Twitty tells his family story through the foods that enabled his ancestors’ survival across three centuries. He sifts through stories, recipes, genetic tests, and historical documents, and travels from Civil War battlefields in Virginia to synagogues in Alabama to Black-owned organic farms in Georgia.

    As he takes us through his ancestral culinary history, Twitty suggests that healing may come from embracing the discomfort of the Southern past. Along the way, he reveals a truth that is more than skin deep—the power that food has to bring the kin of the enslaved and their former slaveholders to the table, where they can discover the real America together.
