Blackberry Farm | Taste of the South
In celebration of the achievements of the South’s best, Blackberry Farm, in concert with the Southern Foodways Alliance at the University of Mississippi, hosts the annual Taste of the South gathering.
We honor and celebrate farmers, artsans, and chefs, bringing these vital figures of Southern food culture together for enrichment and education, both as recompense for their contributions and as catalyst for the practice of Southern foodways. This event establishes needed linkages between cooks and the craftspeople who produce the building blocks of great food, all the while preserving and strengthening the foundations of Southern culture.
In addition to a Gala Dinner honoring the chefs and artisans, the Taste of the South event does, of course, feature the Southern Foodways Alliance’s signature blend of edification, alimentation, and celebration. In other words, we eat and drink well while we learn from one another. And we treat ourselves at the annual silent auction, with the satisfaction that their dollars support SFA documentary initiatives.
