Southern Stews Collection: Brunswick stew (Georgia and Virginia traditions); Burgoo (stew of Kentucky); Carolina Hash; Frogmore Stew; Chicken Bog; Sheep Stew; & Southern Stews: A Taste of the South

All the travel, field research and shooting Stan Woodward has conducted over the past 20 years traveling the South with various scholars and folklorists resulted in a unique set of documentaries that bring together a picture of the South and Southern folk culture through it's love of food and communal cooking. Now, for the first time,the opportunity to collect these videos as a set is possible. And in this set of videos you will come to see and understand the use of the black iron kettle (wash pot) to cook communal stews that are the signature of Southern Folk Heritage foodways - open air cooking that stands as a monument to Southern cooking among folks with deep Southern agrarian roots.

These documentaries weave together the threads of folk culinary artisans - stewmasters, hash-masters and burgoo kings - into a tapestry that shows how the black iron pot and wooden paddles have become icons that stand for our ancestors, their field-workers, families, neighbors and friends over the past two centuries who have passed down recipes and secret ingredients that are being kept alive and in the pots today.

Thank you for making this available to as wide an audience as possible. You have done us all a service by documenting local cultural traditions which are quickly vanishing. I will be sharing this with all who care.
