Grits And The Rising Popularity Of Southern Cuisine

Feb 6, 2015

Friday on Charlotte Talks we looked at the rising popularity of grits, as well as some the grittier details of this staple. 

Grits have a long history and in the South they are a breakfast tradition. Some say grits were one of the things Native Americans educated settlers about and now the South is educating the rest of the country. Just a few years ago the Low Country specialty, shrimp and grits, began showing up in restaurants nationwide.

Adrian Miller, The Soul Food Scholar, joined host Mike Collins and other guests to discuss this Southern staple. Adrian shared his recipe for Crook's Corner Shrimp and Grits.
