It's like StoryCorps for eaters! The Southern Foodways Alliance, Whole Foods Market and Georgia Organics are doing something called "The Spoken Dish," a video storytelling project designed to document food memories and rituals of the American South. (Personal favorite so far: The girl who talks about her "port-bul fra-r." I'd watch them all at once but that 10-second intro is a mite long for me to take.)
The project is seeking input. Producer Kate Medley asks "What food tradition in your life reflects time, place, and people, or evokes a specific memory?" You can share with them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using #aspokendish.
(And a hat tip to @Smedette for the alert.)
Wait: New favorite is about the "redneck Durian." Seriously, y'all, these are fun.
