Publishers Text

In the pages of Southern Belly, Southern food culture chronicler John T. Edge does more than simply steer you to good food. Much more than your ordinary guidebook grocery list of every smoke shack from Hattiesburg to Hahira, this book tells the story behind the food, people, and places that have become Southern institutions. More than 200 entries run the gamut from chicken shacks, fish camps, and meat'n'three joints to profiles of civil rights leaders and veteran barbecue pitmasters. An authoritative and comprehensive view of the food of the American South: a place-specific book that fuses good eating advice with entries that provide historical and cultural perspective on our appreciation of Southern standard -- and not so standard -- fare.
