    That’s not how you prepare collards or grits. Where’s the rice for the gumbo? Tater tot casserole? Never seen that in the south. Y’all just need to come to the house to get some real southern food.

    To our Irish friends...I'm not even a Southerner and I can say that was the most anemic gumbo I've ever seen. Gizzards are the pre-stomach of certain birds like turkey and chickens. Very tasty and often used minced with the liver and used in gravy and holiday bird stuffing for flavor. grits are eaten in many ways. Your poor sample looked pretty dull. I'm sorry for that. I like them with honey and another American staple - peanut butter - sorry, Johnny Reb, but I'm a Yank. Real peanut butter, not that crap with the axle grease in it. I don't care for collard greens, but they are full of vitamins. I'd rather just have fresh spinach. Bon appetite.

    How to make creamy and savory grits.
    Your liquid ratio should be 3/4 heavy cream and 1/2 chicken stock heated to a strong simmer. Seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and butter. Cheese is optional. People make the mistake of adding to much grits to their liquid and cooking it too fast which causes thick and lumpy grits. Low and slow.

  • Charlese Harrell

    I’m sorry 🤨 that was not corn beef hash!! Wtf is some tater tot casserole? Like who tf is cooking these dishes? This does not represent the south at all? What south are they representing? South of Europe?

    I’m American, (from the North) and I don’t eat a lot of Southern foods. I like Tater Tot casserole. I don’t think that Tater Tot casserole is specific to the south. Everyone I know eats it. I have no idea what a prawn is, but it sounds gross. I don’t eat gizzards. They are like the kidneys of the chicken, but I call them “chicken balls” because that’s what they look like.

    A lot of southerners are descended from Irish immigrants so many iconic Southern foods are heavily based on Irish recipes...0 of them were in this video. Honestly the fact I even know this is weird...I’m Russian??? But I guess living in America for a few years teaches you some stuff.

    Tater tots casserole is not a southern food. All that food was probably cooked by a person in a test kitchen with no knowledge of any southern cuisine. The foods that were picked to represent southern cuisine were not very good representations.

    Those grits needed butter, salt, and pepper. The gumbo didn’t look right to me. Needed more peppers and the color was off. I’m not a gumbo expert, but I have been doing research...isn’t the roux supposed to be a light reddish brown like milk chocolate which makes the gumbo that color? The greens...I DO know how to make those. Needed onions and smoked turkey neck and legs in it. They shoulda asked somebody’s grandma for help. Also, they should have served them some beef stew. They would have loved it! It’s an American twist on an Irish type recipe. So good! My mother used to make beef stew for my Irish boyfriend and he loved it. He is back in Ireland now and he still craves the stuff lol.
