Awards

Each year, the Southern Foodways Alliance celebrates men and women whose lifework enriches Southern food culture. Five SFA awards and honors recognize these cultural standard bearers.

2017 Smith Fellow: Rosalind Bentley


A long-time journalist, Rosalind Bentley is focused on the stories of African American kitchens that have served as hubs for nurturing resistance movements. A native of Florida’s panhandle, with roots there that predate the Civil War, she is also studying the impact of rural land loss on African American families.
