Enjoy this introduction to kush, the original Southern cornbread dressing, a dish born between Africa and America with roots squarely in the Old South. There’s a recipe!!!

Enjoy these pics of me making kush on a plantation in North Carolina and stuffing it into quails that were roasted in a cast iron skillet and larded with thick hickory smoked bacon slices.  The rosemary that held things in place was replaced after roasting. I love Vice and I am so glad I was able to share this with y’all this holiday season!
