Abstract:

Goes behind the scenes of grits cultivation, visiting local growers, millers, and cooks to better understand the South's obsession with grits.

To many, grits are one of those basic, bland Southern table necessities-- something to dollop the butter and salt onto. Murray decided to do some digging to better understand the evolving role of grits in Southern cuisine and culture-- as well as her own Southern identity. She takes the reader behind the scenes of grits cultivation, visiting local growers, millers, and cooks to better understand the South's interest in and obsession with grits. What she discovers, though, is that the simple staple led her to complicated and persisting issues of race, gender, and politics. -- adapted from jacket
