The New South

A National Cuisine
Of the many regional cuisines of North
America, none has won hearts so easily - or
transcended regional boundaries so readily -
as Southern food. Synonymous with modern,
craveable comfort food, dishes with Southern
roots like fried chicken, biscuits, grits, waffles,
macaroni and cheese and, of course, barbecue,
have reigned among the top U.S. food trends
for over a decade. Southern food graces today's
tables far beyond the Mason-Dixon line in
the U.S., and now Southern American-style
barbecue is also found all over the world,
a testament to the power of the flavors and
ingredients that give this cuisine its lasting

impact and compels diners to ask for it again
and again.
Southern cuisine was born of a melting pot
of ethnicities, foodways, techniques and
ingredients brought together within the region.
Preserving the traditions of this culinary legacy
has become a focal point for communities
across the South, where cuisine is almost microregional in nature, with seasonings, flavors
and ingredients ranging from city to city and
even home to home. Barbecue sauce styles,
for example, range from a vinegary, spiced
sauce served in Eastern North Carolina to a
mayonnaise-based sauce in Alabama. In New
Orleans, Cajun and Creole present a world of
difference in cuisine and culture. In kitchens
across the South, debates ramble on over
whether to bake biscuits with lard or butter,
make iced tea sweet or unsweet, or whether hot
sauce or honey should be served fried chicken.
The lines between food and culture are
sometimes distinct in the South, but
oftentimes blurred. Still, what makes the
region so eternally compelling when
it comes to food is that the evolution
continues as new ethnic groups contribute
to the pot and creative culinary minds put
their own stamp on the cuisine.
