Regional cuisine develops as local food supplies blend with the varied cultural backgrounds of its cooks. The rural agriculture of the south produced vegetables, fruits, nuts, rice and corn. Game was plentiful....deer, rabbit, squirrel, ducks,, oysters, shrimp, saltwater and freshwater fish. All the cultures that arrive in the area contributed varied ways of preparing the foods. Early Europeans starved until they listened to their Indian neighbors and learned to enjoy the vegetables grown on the land. Corn, one of the staples of the Native Indians was not appreciated; however, the ladies were forced to use gritty meal for bread instead of their good white wheat from France. But they survived on corn made into hoecakes and johnnycakes and later on hushpuppies.

In the sixteenth century another Southern food staple trotted on the scene in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas behind Herman De Soto's small army of explorers. The Spanish brought pigs. Some of the ancestors of these porkers still roam the woods in the South as wild pigs. Baked ham, country ham and cornbread are still very "Southern." Throughout history the Europeans arrived and they learned how to use the various vegetables and fruits the Indians used. They were not happy about what they found, but in order to survive they had to adapt.

The rural South produced few big cities and travel was difficult. Guests would come to visit and would visit for days, if not weeks. They would bring news and entertainment. Chicken and pork were served in every possible fashion. During the nineteenth century many of the richest citizens of the United States lived in the South. Based on slave labor and the ever expanding land to the west, cotton was king. When Southerners feasted they made a good job of it!

As you eat your way through Savannah and hear the history of this wonderful city you will sample some of the wonderful food that is consumed in modern times in the South. Most of the restaurants stops we will visit have been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel and Turner South and now we bring them to you in person. YUM!
