A beautifully written essay on Southern cooking by Edna Lewis.
I am a filmmaker in Atlanta. I read your latest blog with the mention of Edna Lewis and her essay on 'What Is Southern.'
I just wanted to let you know I produced a 21 minute documentary about Miss Edna Lewis and its viewable in its entirety on Internet at the Gourmet Magazine website and at the Georgia Public Broadcasting website
My documentary is called Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Pie.
My website, has more information about the film and the story of Miss Lewis.
Thank you for sharing. It is a wonderful documentary and watching it was a great way to start the day.
