Come taste Southern home cooking
St. Margaret’s Global Cuisine Potluck supper April 14 will be the 20th in our popular series. The Saturday after Easter we will be dining on down home Southern cooking with Mel Regnell in charge.
Fried chicken is probably the best known Southern specialty but, according to several internet cooking sites including Wikipedia, pork is integral to that region’s cuisine, especially salty, savory Virginia ham. In Virginia and the Carolinas, a holiday whole hog barbecue is known as “pig pickin’” (see photo) and the party usually includes green beans flavored with bacon and salt pork, greens with a bit of fatback, cornbread, sweet tea and some sweet pie – pecan or sweet potato or shoofly pie.
Recipes for some of these dishes are on the Time and Talent Table in the parish hall. Others can be found easily on the internet. Please help yourself to any of the recipes. Also, please sign up so others will know what’s already promised so that we get a wide variety of dishes.
Dinner will be at 6. Please come earlier if your dish needs to be reheated or assembled. Remember to bring your own beverages. We especially want to invite guests to share these meals and get to know St. Margaret’s, so bring along a friend or neighbor who likes to cook. And, as always, non-cooks are definitely welcome. We need you to help us clean up.
