    A totally awesome post! I’m a cook and a foodie, and love Southern cuisine. It’s important to realize that no industry, unfortunately, is free of negativity and intolerance. Thank you for posting this and for shining a much-needed light on something that was, and still is, an issue. It’s unfortunate, because food is one of the main things that links all cultures, all races, all ethnicities and all religions. You would think that cooking would be the thing that creates bridges…….well, in my world, it definitely is! Great post!
