Southern Foodways Alliance: This Feels Like Home

The first thing that you long for as an immigrant is a food from home.

In 2005, Hyundai, a South Korean-owned company, opened a plant in Montgomery, Alabama. What followed was a sudden burst of Korean culture, with 12,000 Koreans now living in the Montgomery area.
In the latest Gravy podcast, reporter and producer Sarah Reynolds, takes us to tables in Montgomery, including a traditional Southern restaurant, Korean owned restaurants, and in the home kitchen of Korean immigrants.
One prominent parallel found between Korean and Southern culture is the importance of feeding each other. In Southern culture, a meat and three plate is a common meal shared in the company of friends and family but with an individual plate and check. In contrast, there is expected sharing at the Korean table, with the meat and eight sides put out “family-style.” But for both, eating together is a bonding experience.
