SFA - eGullet Update

SFA members with an e-mail address on file should have received user names and passwords to a day or two before the Southern Foodways Symposium. Many of you have already registered and made a post or two on the boards. That’s great. The whole reason for the recent association between eGullet and The Southern Foodways Alliance is to enable members to have a forum where they can discuss a broad range of topics relating to Southern Food and related subjects. And to that end we would like to encourage all of you to take a look at the Southern Food Culture Forum ( This forum, unlike any other place on the internet, gives all of us the opportunity to discuss (in excrutiating detail in some cases) the issues that surround Southern food and the culture that interest all of us. Sign on, won't you?
