There’s a great new site to find interesting stories. It’s called Medium and I just posted a short essay that came about from Paula Deen. It mulls over the character of southern food and how its most distinctive recipes were pulled from the spines of slaves. It is important to recognize that our food heritage was forged by Indians, Chicano, Chinese, people whose early culinary influence are embedded deep in our culture. Much like the southern heritage Ms. Deen’s enormous success is built upon, their input is re-appropriated for our day’s fashions.
