The Potlikker Papers

by John T. Edge

The Potlikker Papers tracks the evolution of Southern identity, from the back-to-the-land movement of the 1970s that began in the Tennessee hills to the rise of fast and convenience foods modeled on Southern staples. The Potlikker Papers frames and interprets shifts in beliefs and identities, revealing how Southern food has become a shared culinary language for the nation.

This has quickly become a book I reference in almost every conversation I have about Southern food. Bite-sized profiles and pictures of the past events that shaped the way we eat now. Essential reading.
