EATER INTERVIEWSEater National interviewed Oxford, MS chef John Currence about this new cookbook. He talks about Southern cooking, and says this about Savannah's finest: "I rail on Paula Deen pretty regularly for furthering a stereotype for Southerners that I find offensive. I feel like it continues to undermine the work that a number of us have done to bring a legitimacy or intellectual credibility to the food of the South, so I wanted to do everything I could to put something on paper that expressed a voice of the South that was a seat at the table in the conversation on American food."
