Filmmaker Joe York spotlights the tradition-bearers of Southern foodways while presenting intimate portraits of men and women who grow, prepare, and serve Southern food and drink. Along the way, he asks and those tradition-bearers answer important questions about American culinary culture. Travelling from Virginia to Texas and ten states in between, he examines themes related to foodways, sense of place, civil rights, gender, family dynamics, and diversity in the modern American South. What do foodways tell us about what it means to be a Southerner? How and why do traditional foodways endure? As America's ethnic and racial make-up shifts, how do regional foodways change? A diverse and eclectic cast of characters populates Pride & Joy. Farmer and novelist Dori Sanders makes mouths water with her luscious peaches. Dairyman Earl Cruze has unlocked the secret of a lasting marriage by way of buttermilk. The Hardy Family argues that boiled green peanuts are a world-class delicacy. These are just three of the farmers, artisans, and cooks whose stories offer insights on the South's complex history and bright future.
