Perspectives on Wine Blogging: Wine Columnist Talia Baiocchi

Perspectives on Wine Blogging: Wine Columnist Talia Baiocchi | Atlanta Food & Wine Journal | Scoop.it

Bloggers: how important are they really, anyway? "Yeah, just ask a wine blogger. Kidding. First, I don’t think a blogger’s importance – or the importance of blogging in general – should be measured by influence or who moves the most boxes.

Mastering Whole Hog Cookery At The Southern Foodways Symposium

Mastering Whole Hog Cookery At The Southern Foodways Symposium | Atlanta Food & Wine Journal | Scoop.it

The theme of the 15th Annual Southern Foodways Symposium was Barbecue: An Exploration of Pitmaster, Places, Smoke, and Sauces, so it's no surprise that whole hog was on the menu. Noted smoker chefs from around the South were in attendance to show off their pit prowess, including Rodney Scott of Scott's Pit Cook Bar-B-Que in Hemingway, SC and Sam Jones from the Skylight Inn in Ayden, NC, who both took on whole animals. Cooking for an assemblage of almost 400 foodies from across the country is always an intimidating task; tackling a whole hog takes a big ol' set of mountain oysters.

On having offended God in Savannah, GA

On having offended God in Savannah, GA | Atlanta Food & Wine Journal | Scoop.it

“SAVANNAHIANS ARE THE LUCKIEST people in the world,” declares interior design author Charles Faudree at the 2012 Savannah Book Festival. A year ago, evaluating like the tourist I was, I believed his statement. Now, a local myself, seated behind the blue bloods with the blue hair blocking the alabaster abs of Greek gods in the Telfair Sculpture Garden, I feel lost, not lucky.
