South by Somewhere

Production of a series of programs that examine the foodways, history, and culture of the American South.

South by Somewhere [working title] is a television series starring chef Vivian Howard, a best-selling author and chef who appears on the Peabody and Emmy award-winning television show, A Chef's Life, which aired for five seasons on PBS and reached 4 million viewers per episode. In the new series, Howard aims to show the diverse cultures found in the rural South through common dishes served on her neighbors and friends’ tables. While learning to make other communities' versions of hand pies, dumplings, and porridge, Vivian will hear the stories of her native and immigrant neighbors, digging into complexities of the past and present while celebrating the beauty of its cultures through the dishes Vivian and her neighbors all share. South by Somewhere will show that the rural South is more than cornbread and collards, but also tamales, hummus, kimchi, and a whole lot more.
