Renowned Southern chefs share recipes from their restaurants. There's just something about Southern food. As cliché as it may sound, there's an innate sense of character and soul to it. You get the feeling that there's a real trail of history behind every dish. And of course, there is a deep history, one that melds disparate influences from Europeans, and Native- and African-Americans to create something truly unique. In fact, many make the argument that Southern food is America's only true cuisine. But there's also a special magic to this food, an inherent feeling that whoever prepared it put all their love and effort into it so that you, too, could experience the way they felt when they first tried it themselves.Read More »from 6 Iconic Southern Dishes You Need to Know How to Cook

Crispy Roast Chicken Recipe
One of the first and best (and most primal) things I learned to do in the kitchen was to roast a chicken. In high school, it was also one of the few experiences that my sister, Nicole, and I could share without a fight.
We'd push a few pats of butter under a chicken's skin, stuff a bunch of fresh herbs in the cavity, and roast it in a hot oven until golden brown, by which time the smell drove us crazy. We'd devour it standing up, burning our fingers and tongues as we pulled at the hot, crackling skin, eating it right down to the nubbins.

It's really easy, just takes about a week to cure the meat, and you don't need a smoker, although you might want one. I generally use two 2 ½-pound pieces of pork belly because it's easier to handle and you can play around with different spice blends. This started out from Michael Ruhlman's excellent Charcuterie book.
