SOUTHERN SAVOR FOOD COMPANY

3 years ago

Southern cooking has a way of bringing family home and recalling fond memories of childhood.  Southern food is comfort food that reminds us of where we come from.  It is a silent bond that ties generations together and is the foundation of our heritage. 

There is a reason the kitchen is the heart of the home.  It is where families gather for food and conversation.  It is a happy place filled with aromas that wake up the appetite, take us to a past time, or just plain make us salivate.  Comfort foods have a magical power of making everything alright again.  It makes our hearts smile.

I remember coming home from school when I was little and the first thing I noticed when I walked in the door, was the smell.  My mom was a stay a home mom and dinner was always on the stove cooking when my sisters and I walked in the door.  The kitchen was the first place we landed.  Food is a very fond memory for me.  It reminds me of good times with my family and our friends.  My mother and father were big entertainers and food was a big production most of the time.  It is a tradition I have tried to continue in my own family.  Comfort foods have a way of strengthening relationships, building new ones, and are often the foundation of social events.
