The Edible South: The Power of Food and the Making of an American Region

In her new book The Edible South, historian Marcie Cohen Ferris examines how the evolution of regional cuisine illustrates the complex history of the American South. Ferris suggests that from colonial settlers to antebellum plantations to the civil rights movement and today’s culture of heritage products, food has expressed and shaped Southern identity.
