Our State magazine just tweeted about one of their latest issue’s articles. This Emily Wallace article is about that Southern comfort food called grits. Most people probably have a love/hate relationship with this food……for me, it is love. My mother hated grits, but she often fed them to her family. That practice also spells l-o-v-e to me, because the pot and bowls left behind are hot messes to be sure!
My favorite quote from Ms. Wallace’s article is “Grits are like family – a touchstone of place and identity.” Food can mean a lot of things……….not just sustenance for the body. What foods speak to you of childhood mornings or cozy nights by the fire or the best dish you ate while visiting Charleston?
