says

Southern cuisine was born through the collision of conflicting cultures in the New World. Bill Neal cooks the food of the South through a historical context, revealing how hushpuppies, buttermilk pie, and peanut soup made their way into the American tradition.

from the publisher

With a stellar collection of recipes, Neal reveals the background and subtleties of southern foods. He uses imaginative new ways with old standards to make the recipes more accessible, but he never resorts to shortcuts or processed ingredients. He also shows how the meeting of Native American, Western European, and African cultures has created this cuisine.
