sfa_Founder-John_Egerton1.jpgOne of the founders of the Southern Foodways Alliance and esteemed writer on Southern history, food and culture John Egerton passed away in Nashville at the age of 78. "Egerton was an evangelist of Southern food, but more importantly, he knew that our region's food and foodways could open the door to profound and impactful dialogue about race, class, gender, and much more."
