really liked it
bookshelves: food

This is a collection of great southern food writing, both recent and historical, with an emphasis on barbecue. It deals with the meanings and purposes of barbecue and how these intertwine with issues of race, southern identity, meat, politics, family, religion. I'm definitely interested in checking out some of the other volumes; I believe that they're up to vol. 4 or 5 by now.
