The following is an excerpt from a business profile I wrote some years ago for Business First. I’ve reprinted it here for any foodies out there!
In his book, “Side Orders: Small Helpings of Southern Cookery & Culture,” food writer John Egerton paints Southern cooking with a palette of Creole, Cajun, country and soul. Glory Foods sought to capture the slow-cooked flavors of traditional Southern recipes and serve canned products fully seasoned with onions, garlic, spices and smoked ham flavor. Turnip greens, okra, collard greens, black-eyed peas, green beans and the flavor of smoked ham – “the crown jewels of the Southern kitchen” according to Egerton – are among Glory Foods’ growing line of culinary gems.
