When you grow up on foods like biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, and fried chicken with all the fixins…you grew up Southern. The USA’s Deep South has a culture all its own. And, like many places, a big part of that culture centers on food. I may live in New York City now, but I grew up on Southern food and you can bet I seek it out every time I head back down South. Here are some of my favorite places to put some South in my mouth.
