Featuring Southern Foodways Alliance director John T. Edge
Nationally acclaimed author and contributor for the New York Times and director of the Southern Foodways Alliance, an organization dedicated to preserving and exploring the histories of the American South. His recent publication, The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South, is a collection of Southern cultural culinary experiences. O, The Oprah Magazine said his writing is “a panoramic mural of the South’s culinary heritage, illuminating the region’s troubled place at the American table and the unsung role of cooks in the quest for social justice.”

Spend an evening with John T. Edge. Enjoy great food from Zingerman’s Greyline including a build-your-own BLT bar and caramel-enrobed bacon popcorn. Then, experience great conversations about food. John T. will discuss the power of narrative and its effects through the lens of culture and food.

We’re so excited to have him back at Camp Bacon for our 10 year anniversary! It’s going to be a great night—don’t miss out, tickets will go quick.

$15 dollars from each ticket will be donated to SFA to further their amazing work.

"We inspire communities to invest in their culinary cultures. We promote pride of place, and encourage local communities to invest in cultural richness. We honor the people of our region. We recognize men and women whose hard work enriches the landscape of Southern food and culture."
