Our last SFA Take parsed out the politics of cultural preservation and defined SFA’s aim to document, rather than preserve, the South’s foodways. Those foodways are diverse and dynamic—they include far more than collard greens and cornbread.
SFA devotes significant time and resources to collecting those diverse stories and sharing them across all our platforms. We hope to dispel the myth of a single Southern cuisine and, more broadly, a single Southern culture.
Take some time to celebrate the diverse South with us by learning, with these resources, how migration and immigration give ever more depth and richness to our region’s foodways.
