Bandy Center to Host Program on 'Sweet South'

Regional confections will be the topic when the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia explores “The Sweet South” in a culinary program Thursday, November 3, at the James E. Brown Center at Dalton State College.

“Banana Pudding, Pecan Pie, and Peach Cobbler are all desserts traditionally identified with the American South … but why?” asks Dr. John Fowler, who serves Dalton State as B.J. and Dicksie Bandy Chair of History in addition to directing the activities of the Bandy Center. “Historians, anthropologists, and even cooks have identified a uniqueness to Southern fare.”

Gay Tate, owner of Unique Impressions, will demonstrate an array of sweet Southern treats at three different tastings scheduled throughout the afternoon. The program is free and open to the public but space is limited and participants are asked to register for a tasting demonstration time. Tastings are scheduled at 2 pm, 2:50 and 3:30. Those with questions or wishing to make a reservation should call 706-272-4452.

“Our audience members will not only have an opportunity to find out why certain desserts are staples of Southern cuisine but also to gather recipes for making these testaments to the region’s culinary arts,” Fowler said.
