Every year, Southern Food Heritage Day is celebrated on October 11st. The Southern Food & Beverage Museum celebrates the culturally rich and delicious food of the Southern States in America.
The cuisine deserves to be recognized and celebrated officially because it is a testament to American history and legacy.
Southern food also represents the essence of America — the coming together of a variety of people from all over the world, each bringing with themselves their own ingredients and recipes to create a unique cuisine.
Iced tea, pickled shrimps, and fried chicken are some of the most loved Southern foods throughout history. Along with the cuisine, the day also celebrates the racial and ethnic diversity in America.
