Our world is made up of many different cultures, people and foods that are local to cities and countries. And with so many great cooks out there, it's no surprise that certain types of foods have garnered worldwide attention. But we're not talking about chicken tikka masala or orange chicken with fried rice today, because we're about to take a trip down south!
Southern cuisine is known for its ambitious and bold flavors and textures and enticing aromas. Many dishes also provide a sense of warmth and comfort, such as mac and cheese and chicken fried steak. And while you may have heard of popular dishes like fried chicken, fried fish and pork ribs, there are other types of recipes that feature lesser-known ingredients. Some examples include pickled pig's feet, braised oxtails and fried fatback. There's also hog jowl (which are pork cheeks) and offal (this dish utilizes various parts of an animal, such as a pig's intestines and stomach lining). In the Carolinas, livermush is a breakfast staple. With so many types of southern entrees, side dishes and desserts to choose from, we're confident that we'll be able to guess your favorite dish!
