Forgive me for taking a vacation just after the holidays; BUT, I am headed out today for my first vacation – on my own – in 10 years (snow permitting)… very excited & for good reason:
Taste of the South @ Blackberry Farms
Alabama Chanin donated one of our Textile Stories Quilts to the auction benefiting the Southern Foodways Alliance at Blackberry Farm this weekend.
The quilt – shown above – is called Aunt Mag’s Chicken Recipe – a story from my favorite great-aunt about her secret recipe for fried chicken that she served only for her quilting circles.
Our entire series of quilts was inspired by the Oral History program – a series of inspiring recipes, stories and films that are made, collected and cataloged by the Southern Foodways Alliance.
SFA Oral History: The Story Behind the Food
Thank you to John T. Edge, Angie Mosier, Mary Beth Lasseter, Amy Evans, Joe York and a million more who make the SFA Oral History possible.
If you are not already a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance, join today – if for no other reason than to receive your printed copy of Gravy.
Back next week rested and with recipes and stories for the next decade – Natalie
