Foodlore and Folklife in Tidewater North Carolina

Record #:
In a town dubbed \"Potluck\" in the northern Tidewater region of North Carolina, there are many ways of sharing food, all of which force communion between isolated individuals. The whole social interaction based on food is made possible because raising, catching, or hunting food is the core of the local economy and the center of a good deal of leisure activity. This economic foundation reinforces the seasonal round of foods that grace the table, the methods for cooking, and the people involved.
