Bread and bakery
Cornbread is as essential to life in the South as air and water. Always cooked in a hot cast iron skillet, it is wonderfully crisp on the outside and soft and moist inside. It is key ingredient in Thanksgiving dressing and is delicious smeared with butter or, as my father and I often did, crumbled into a cold glass of milk while the bread is still piping hot! (Seriously, try it sometime).
