Last week we had the distinct pleasure of attending the Southern Foodways Alliance Symposium in Oxford, Mississippi. This group of passionate Southern foodies documents and celebrates the foodways and people that make the South such a unique dining destination. And, they know how to pass a good time! This year's Symposium focused on BBQ and included everything from The History of the Pig to renowned writers espousing on their favorite BBQ joints. Of course, there was also plenty of great food and drink: whole hog cookouts, grilled smoked oysters, greens, beans and more! Kudos to the Southern Foodways Alliance for assembling such a terrific agenda of speakers, chefs and presenters - and for serving up some serious Southern hospitality. Such a delicious event!
