With a name like "The Hungry Southerner," well, there was simply no doubt I wouldn't love everything about this project. Yes, I do love grits, biscuits, farm-fresh vegetables and the occasional *ahem* piece of fried chicken. It's hard to keep a girly figure in the South, isn't it? Oh, but so worth every yummy moment.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sean from The Hungry Southerner team, at one of my favorite Atlanta spots (Bakeshop), to chat about this wonder of a project. Their mission is to share the rich stories that make being hungry a way of life, to discover the southern foods that inspires new creations and to pass on our passion for Southern culture and its timeless traditions.
Truly, a match made in heaven, which I often refer to as - the South.
I am so honored to be a part of their podcast series, which is currently the top foodie podcast series on iTunes, no less! They are currently making their way across the South, talking to people about traditions and the stories that inspired their products. The passion & genuine interest they have for their project is undeniable. For me, it doesn't get any better.
I hope you'll take a moment to take a listen to The Hungry Southerner podcast with IceMilk Aprons and read the delightful blog post & gorgeous photos they took!
A very special thank you again to The Hungry Southerner - helping to preserve these Southern stories for generations to come, and allowing me to tell a bit more of mine.
