Food in the South is intrinsically connected to life in the South. It is through creating, eating, and sharing food that pleasure is evoked, connections are forged, context is learned, and history is created. Across Southern states, individual interpretations of food are as varied and compelling as the people who live in our unique cities and towns. Yet the importance of food in enriching our lives, our culture, and ourselves is a concept that is universally understood. The South is known for hospitality, so sit back, relax, and allow The Local Palate Magazine to serve you the best our region has to offer.
