On today’s episode of The Food Seen, “Big Bad Chef” John Currence, heads north from New Orleans, finding his home, and his calling, in Oxford, Mississippi. With him, he brought the culinary archaeology of his heritage, taking cues from the Gulf Coast, and inflecting his food with Southern traditions. As a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance, John’s penchant to preserve and proliferate regional cuisine in America’s South, from techniques like pickling, canning, brining, smoking, and slathering, allows him to playfully riff on gumbo, while honoring the past. In his first cookbook, Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey, not only denotes his 3 favorite food groups, but shares recipes from his beloved restaurants such as City Grocery, Snackbar, Big Bad Breakfast, Bouré, and Lamar Lounge. Make yourself a drink, turn on some music, and rock out to some Southern hospitality. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"Mississippi is sort of a strange place. We spend a lot of time doing culinary archaeology. The city doesn't have a whole lot of definable food-ways." [8:00]

"There's nothing in the world that I quite love like making dinner for my wife, and not just because I can't make anything she doesn't like." [22:00]

"That's what I call 'the new Southern cooking movement' - when you take the fresh ingredients around you and use them in a classic way, or you use new vegetables in classic ways." [9:40] -- Nathalie Dupree on A Taste of the Past

"If you eat real food in modest portions, you're going to be so satisfied. It's when we restrict ourselves, go on crazy diets- that's when we get unsatisfied; you can't really satisfy that hunger." [15:00] -- Cynthia Graubart on A Taste of the Past
