The Birth of Foodways Texas

Over the past few years, the Oxford, Mississippi-based Southern Foodways Alliance has become the driving force behind the study and celebration of the food culture of the South.  Following their lead, Robb Walsh has pulled together a group of chefs, food writers, food purveyors, and academics to create Foodways Texas.  Last week they got together to elect a board and write a mission statement and, in proper Texas fashion, eat and drink themselves silly.

If the success of the SFA is indication, the FTX (as they've adopted for their acronym) should soon be churning out plenty of compelling material on the food history and culture of the Lone Star state . . . and making a lot of people across the country really, really hungry, too.
