on this forum and others, people state they want to come here and eat some REAL southern cooking.

So, what do you think they mean? Collard Greens and black eyed peas are about all I can think of.....and of course, Grits!

Would you travel just to eat Southern Cooking?

Is it because you " hate soul food" that you have determined the items you mentioned are " not southern foods"?

Some may call it "soul food" but the rest of us think of it as dinner. No, I won't travel far to get it.

Now that I'm approximately middle aged, I can honestly say that deep-fried twinkles don't count.

And, 'Sweet Potatoes' does as good a job as anyone does, locally. I also like NOT waiting in line to get it. I recently tried some Southern cooking catered by 'Sisters' and noticed they added sugar to everything. it wasn't very good.

Things like ham, corn bread, and sweet potatoes are routinely eaten in the north, so I don't consider them southern food.
Things we never eat up north are okra, sweet tea, grits, greens, and boiled peanuts.

Salt cured old time country ham served with grits and red eye gravy for breakfast. Backbones and rice for dinner, tacos for supper.
