Good morning! I hope that you had a fabulous weekend. I baked, ate, decorated cookies,and ate some more cookies this weekend. I am happy “the most wonderful time of the year” is only once a year because I would be as big as a house. I love cookies and cookie dough even more.
I don’t know about you but I always have a few people on my list that are a challenge to find gifts for and more often than not I end up either making or sending them foodie gifts.
This year I was introduced to Food for the Southern Soul by a friend and I am excited to share all of their wonderful products because they are fantastic!
Food for the Southern Soul was started by Jimmy and Ann Marie Haygood who turned a passion for low-country cooking into a way of life. Ann-Marie and Jimmy traded their corporate jobs for a 30 foot long barbecue rig, to launch their catering, specialty food and restaurant businesses.
Jimmy is an award winning barbecue pit master, winning competitions across the country, and has bottled his rubs, marinades and sauces so that you can get the authentic taste at home.
In addition to the sauces, and rubs you can also try many other low-country favorites, stone ground grits, rice, handmade benne wafers, artichoke relish and more. The Haygoods’ not only barbecue but they grow their own rice, make their own cane syrup, and bottle their own sauces but they continue to preserve the tastes and traditions of southern foods.
If you happen to live in Charleston you can try Jimmy’s an award winning barbecue at the ‘Cue-osk in City Market.
If you are searching for the perfect gift for the foodie in your life check out all of the wonderful items from Food For The Southern Soul, on-line shop, everything from apple butter, grits, rice, benne wafers, barbecue sauces, marinades, dressings, salsa’s and so much more.
Do you have a favorite “foodie” gift or regional specialty that you like to give to family and friends? If so, please share as I am sure that we can all use a few ideas.
Have a great week and enjoy the season.
