Southern Fried Culture

Southern Fried Culture

Cuisine is a characteristic style of cooking practices and traditions, often associated with a specific culture. Cuisines are often named after the geographic areas or regions from which they originate. A cuisine is primarily influenced by the ingredients that are available locally or through trade. Religious food laws, such as Islamic dietary laws and Jewish dietary laws, can also exercise a strong influence on cuisine. Regional food preparation traditions, customs and ingredients often combine to create dishes unique to a particular region. Being a country founded by immigrants from other countries, the cuisine in the United States varies greatly, offering a taste of different cultures across the country. In the southern part of the United States, a popular cuisine is known as southern comfort food. Traditionally made up of fried foods that are deliciously bad for you; fried chicken being one of the more popular dishes.

On October 23rd, a small group of Alliance Abroad J-1 internationals were treated to some good ol’ southern comfort food at Lucy’s Fried Chicken in Austin, Texas. On the menu with the buckets of fried chicken: fried deviled eggs, sweet potatoes, Texas caviar, boiled potatoes, and french fries. Nobody dared to try the mountain oysters:)

Here are some pictures of international representatives of Belgium, Brazil, and France enjoying a traditional southern meal with their American colleagues.
