We’re kicking off our 2020 Epicurean Adventures by bringing “Southern Comforts” to Sarasota. No matter where you’re from, comfort food almost always resembles the delicious foods from states below the Mason-Dixie Line. The southern foods that we know and love, provide just the right amount of nostalgia & comfort. Fried, stewed, boiled, or smoked these foods wrap us all in a warm big hug - it’s called soul food for a reason.
Traditional “Southern” cuisine can look very different from state to state due to the variation of ingredients used. Many elements of Southern cooking—squash, tomatoes, corn, and deep-pit barbecuing—are adopted from Southeast American Indian tribes. Sugar, flour, milk, and eggs come from Europe; and the appreciation for fried foods is a favorite from Scotland.
Food that's good for your soul
