Atlantic South

The Atlantic South stretches from Delaware all the way down to southern Florida. The modern culinary history of this sub-region stretches back to 1565, when Spaniards waded ashore to establish the first European colony in America at Saint Augustine, Florida. The Spanish introduced pigs and peaches into the Americas. Centuries later, pork barbecue rules the South and peaches command the orchards of Georgia and South Carolina. Seafood is on the menu all along the Atlantic South, from the blue crab of the Chesapeake Bay to the conch fritters of Key West. Rice once dominated the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia. Though the industry has long since died out, the rice-based dishes that grew up here, like Hoppin’ John, remain.

About me:
When I was growing up, I stayed in the kitchen with my mother and my grandmother. My mother remained reluctant to change recipes or experiment, but my grandmother was different. My grandmother, (Korean), is an amazing cook. The first dishes I learned to cook were traditional Korean dishes that I still make today for my family. Once I started a family, my cooking skills were at test. After a few years, my knowledge and passion for cooking increased. Now I frequent daily, learn new tricks, and experiment much. Every month I create a new family favorite that my family enjoys. After whipping together great food, I am left with time for my studies! (Biology)
