This week I found myself in a state of Southern bliss at Billy Reid's hip Soho clothing store hanging with friends, eating fried chicken and deviled eggs and drinking Kentucky bourbon.  Not exactly a typical night in Gotham, but then again it is not every night Garden and Gun magazine has a launch party in Manhattan for their recently published  The Southerner's Handbook.

The rustic setting adorned with Billy Reid's fabulous clothing line and leather creations set the scene perfectly for the southern bites provided by Seersucker, the Brooklyn-based restaurant which has been satisfying southerly cravings for years.

The featured book, a tutorial on Southern culture starts by discussing why our culinary heritage matters and ends with what lies beneath the Great Southern Novel.

So whether you were are born and bred below the Mason-Dixon Line or just somewhat intrigued by your friends who were, this guidebook is a must.

Definitely getting this for my NYC son with southern-leaning tastes.

My bedtime reading for the last week - it is a must have in every Southern household.  Invaluable advice ...much that our mothers and grandmothers taught us so a good refresher from some great voices of the South.
