Can it even be done? All I want is some real tea and fried chicken and maybe some greens and cornbread on the side. It's been like three years. -.-

Learn to cook.

I'd like to have a mobile kitchen, and do gumbo and jambalaya at festivals in the Rocky Mountain states during the summer.

Do it yourself is my way since dining out is expensive and questionable...

Must depend on who is cooking it. Southern food is the only food I dont automatically assume tastes bad when cooked by non professional whites.

I was being nice! I dont like greens. I prefer spinach and green beans I love chicken and waffles. I love gumbo both the Louisiana style and the Mississippi swamp style.

There is this thing called Google.....and Yelp.....

Anyway- the rest of us can find southern food in Northern California- I can't say its necessarily as good as what I have had in South Carolina or Georgia but there is some damn fine Southern food here.

Gumbo and jambalaya are not "southern cooking".

I disagree. My family is from the south.

Gumbo - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

"Gumbo is a dish that originated in southern Louisiana from the Louisiana Creole people during the 18th century. "
