recently, my family went on a little summer road trip and drove halfway across the country from georgia to far west texas....we were on highways and backroads, in small towns and big cities...
there were many times when we were hungry and could not easily find an option to all the fast food places. then, i remembered that i had the southern foodways alliance's story app on my phone! this app shares many of the oral histories the sfa has produced over the years about southern food and the people and places that make it so unique. interested in bbq? just follow the bbq trail in the app...want to know more about boudin in louisiana or why there are so many tamales in mississippi? look it all up here!
the app is searchable by state, by interactive map, by food type, or by proximity to larger cities in the south, so you can pretty much find a good meal anywhere, and learn something in the process!
here are screenshots of the app...
