You might have noticed: The South is getting a lot of attention lately — attention for our food, our culture, and our booming creativity. The South is hot. But we’ve always known that.
We see it every day, as we travel the region searching for the best new restaurants, the most gorgeous homes, the most jaw-dropping gardens. We hear it in the music we cover, we taste it in the food perfected in our Test Kitchen.
We live the South 24/7.
So today we’re launching The Daily South to bring you more — more stories about emerging trends, Southern proprietors of style, and the insider scoop on what we’re talking about in the hallways of Southern Living.
What to expect? To start, you’ll get inspiration and tips for your home and gardens, travel secrets from our intrepid road warriors, gorgeous photos by our staff photographers, and of course a generous portion of food.
You’ll get more behind-the-scenes footage from our Test Kitchen (who doesn’t want to sit around their tasting table?), learn more about the Southern chefs who are re-imagining Southern cuisine, and be inspired by the creativity of our region’s food culture.
To kick things off this week, we’re celebrating with some of the South’s leading taste makers. Each day we’ll feature a “Southern Must List,” joined by leaders like fashion designer Billy Reid, chef Sean Brock, and interior designer Tobi Fairley.
That is, if you want to know what’s going on in the South. It’s hot, you know.
