Your (other) Tournament Bracket

Garden and Gun magazine is so clever.  They have their own tournament bracket in March...for food.  If you love Southern fare, you should check this out.  It's fun!




"Last year we came up with the slightly crazy idea to do our own version of the March Madness bracket, pitting the stalwarts of Southern food against one another in a battle for culinary supremacy. The response was, well, pretty overwhelming. In an upset, shrimp and grits took the title over pulled pork, prompting one disheartened Facebook fan to tell us, “My world makes no sense anymore.” But hey, what’s a rivalry without a little heat?

The time has come for a rematch as we kick off the second annual Ultimate Southern Food Bracket. The heavyweights are back, along with some scrappy underdogs. And to keep it interesting, this year we’ve grouped the teams into four Southern divisions: Barbecue, Lowcountry, Classics, and Cajun/Creole. Over the next few weeks, you can vote online to determine who makes it into the Sweet (and savory) Sixteen, the Elite Ate, the Foodie Four, all the way to the Southern food champion.

After you vote, be sure to enter our Southern Food Sweepstakes for a chance to win an exclusive G&G prize pack (a Le Creuset cast-iron French oven, a Hable Construction shopping tote, a G&G canvas apron, and five autographed Southern cookbooks).

Will mac and cheese trounce collards? Can boiled peanuts make a Cinderella run? Can anyone take down fried chicken? You decide. Click here to cast your vote."
