About Us

Who We Are and Where We've Been

Food in the South is intrinsically connected to life in the south. It is through eating, sharing, and creating food that pleasure is evoked, connections are forged, context is offered, and history is created. Across Southern states, individual interpretations of food are as varied and compelling as the people who live in our unique cities and towns.

We celebrate people, reveal processes, share recipes, and most of all, we have fun.

Yet the importance of food in enriching our lives, our culture, and ourselves is a concept that is universally understood. The Local Palate is the South’s premiere food culture publication; a unique blend of culinary history and Southern hospitality, indigenous ingredients, and world class chefs. We celebrate people, reveal processes, share recipes, and most of all, we have fun. Allow us to serve you the best offerings of our region.
