2007 TASTE OF THE SOUTH CHEFS' ORAL HISTORIES







In celebration of the achievements of the South's best chefs and artisans, Blackberry Farm, in concert with the SFA, is hosting a new edition of the annual Taste of the South gathering this week at Blackberry Farm in Walland, TN.

This year we honor and celebrate chefs and artisans, bringing those vital figures of Southern food culture together for enrichment and education, both as recompense for their contributions and as a catalyst for the practice of Southern foodways.

As part of the event, we are featuring oral history interviews with the five honored chefs, who also happen to be founding members of the SFA: Ben Barker, Karen Barker, Leah Chase, Louis Osteen & Frank Stitt. Read their interviews here.
