Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

Eater National has an exclusive excerpt from Garden & Gun's first-ever book, The Southerner's Handbook: A Guide to Living the Good Life. In it, Southern food excerpt/SFA president John T. Edge explains the importance of the South's cuisine today. The Holy City is mentioned by Edge with the statement, "Singer Bette Midler once told a Charleston, South Carolina audience in the 1980s that grits tasted like 'buttered kitty litter.'"[-EN-]
