It’s no secret Southerners know their way around the kitchen, but Southern recipes are about so much more than a delicious, hearty meal on the table. Southern food is a culture in and of itself. The recipes are as much about tradition as they are about the flavor. These are recipes that have stood the test of time; recipes that have been passed down from one generation to the next.
WHAT ARE TRADITIONAL SOUTHERN FOODS?
The South covers a large territory of the United States, consisting of a whopping 16 states. In fact, Texas alone covers almost 270,000 square miles!
As you can imagine, the food culture is diverse, although one thing remains the same: Southern recipes and comfort food are synonymous terms. That being said, if it originated from below the Mason-Dixon line, it’s safe to call it Southern Comfort Food.
