From the Southern Foodways Alliance website:
In concert with the annual Alabama Adventure Weekend, a celebration of handcrafted food, music, art, and fashion to be held April 20-21, 2007, in and around Florence and Tuscumbia, Alabama, the SFA introduces Camp Shoals.
Registrants will dine on rabbit and watercress, cooked by Scott Peacock of Watershed Restaurant and Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill; ponder the Muscle Shoals Sound with musicologist Jay Leavitt; and groove to the guitar stylings of the Greg Spradlin Outfit.
A portion of the $85 registration fee underwrites a Joe York-directed and SFA-produced documentary short about the men who work the kettles at Shoals community chicken stew feeds. Click here to download a registration form. Registrations are now being accepted on a first-come first-served basis.
The Squad just had the pleasure of dining at the restaurants of both Frank Stitt and Scott Peacock. Now we will have a chance to have a meal cooked by the two of them together. We just registered for Camp Shoals.
The SFA does incredible work through its films, books, oral histories and so many other projects. I am proud of finally removing the stigma of being non-members by sending our membership application this week.
I would encourage anyone who loves food, and not just Southern food, to join the SFA and participate in their events. Help them save and record history while making your own memories.
