Although we have many barriers yet to remove in the South, we are lucky to have valued and retained a great deal of our food culture. We are also lucky to have Southern Foodways Alliance diligently working to capture history and help create new history too. Their website is a treasure trove of stories, recipes and facts of southern food. Their events often sell out quickly-for good reason.
One of the projects they have begun is a movie. Here is the filmmaker’s story:
Hey, I’m Joe York. I make documentaries for the Southern Foodways Alliance and the University of Mississippi’s Media & Documentary Projects Center. In early 2010, we began production of a feature-length documentary film with the oh so original working title of “Southern Food: The Movie”.
