James Beard Award nominee
Title: Writer
Location: Charleston, SC

Why he's a big deal: As a historian, writer, and agriculturalist, he explores the foodways of the American South from a variety of perspectives, but retains a special affinity for the culinary influences of the African slave trade, grinding sorghum cane for the syrup pot, and whole hogs cooked slowly over open fires.
