Book Launch: Inventing Authenticity: How Cookbook Writers Redefine Southern Identity, by Dr. Carrie Tippen

Friday, March 15, 2019
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Mellon Boardroom

Cost: Free and open to the public

What is authentic Southern cuisine? Golden cornbread and crispy fried chicken come to mind, but what about black-eyed peas and okra– pound cake and peach cobbler? What makes a dish authentic and who has the authority to decide? Join us for a “Southern” style barbeque lunch and panel discussion to celebrate the launch of Dr. Carrie Tippen’s newest book Inventing Authenticity: How Cookbook Writers Redefine Southern Identity which challenges accepted definitions of southern cooking and culture and explores the voices yet unheard who have used recipes and rebellion to create a notion of the South that reaches beyond traditional stereotypes and social mores.

Southern Picnic lunch with bbq, cornbread, pie and more will be served.
Program includes a panelist discussion featuring Dr. Carrie Tippen, Elizabeth Engelhardt of UNC-Chapel Hill and Wall Street Journal Food and Drink editor Beth Kracklauer.
