Hit the Tamale Trail with the Southern Foodways Alliance

I just posted at Slow Food Columbia on this groovy org in Mississippi that traces Tamale Trails, Gumbo Trails, etc. through the South:

From http://slowfoodcolumbia.blogspot.com/2009/11/southern-foodways-alliance-eat-local.html:

"Heard of the Southern Foodways Alliance? They've just won a 2009 Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award.

Per T + L:
'An exuberant champion of Southern food culture—from its barbecue pit masters and bourbon distilleries to its butterscotch-pie breakfasts and deviled-eggs competitions—the Southern Foodways Alliance celebrates and records the region’s diverse gastronomic landscape through documentary films, books, and not-for-the-calorie-shy field trips and events.

'The Alliance’s food-trails program, which has mapped a Tamale Trail through the Mississippi Delta, a Barbecue Trail in the Southeast, and Boudin and Gumbo Trails across Louisiana, introduces travelers to the small-scale producers and off-the-beaten path restaurants that are the soul of Southern cuisine."

p.s. Hipsters love Argentina because it's cheap, and hip. LGBTQ folks love Argentina because lots of other cultured LGBTQs vacation/relocate there because it's cheap, and it's hip. And as you all now know, the governor of SC likes him some Argentina, too. If you're in Columbia, my good friend John Dawkins and the umbrella group The SC Progressive Network are tapping into the zeitgeist love affair with Argentina this Friday...
