An unpublished essay by the late Edna Lewis—one of America's most resonant and evocative food writers—that she had sent to a colleague years ago was recently discovered. And Gourmet magazine shares it with us this month.
I am a filmmaker in Atlanta. I read your latest blog with the mention of Edna Lewis and her essay on 'What Is Southern'.
I just wanted to let you know I produced a 21 minute documentary about Miss Edna Lewis and its viewable in its entirety on Internet at a Gourmet Magazine website:
and at a Georgia Public Broadcasting website:
My documentary is called Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Pie.
My website, http://bbarash.com/index.htm has more information about the film and the story of Miss Lewis.
