Atlanta Culinary Journeys
Food, like every form of cultural expression, is dynamic and ever changing. Traditional dishes take on new looks and flavors through the course of time and space. Nowhere is this more visible than in Atlanta, whose dining scene offers an array of international cuisines. But from Israeli to Italian, soul food to Senegalese, the dishes served in the 2020s are not necessarily the same as those prepared centuries or even decades ago in their place of origin. In this yearlong series, The Atlanta Journal-Constitutions's food and dining team explores the evolution of Atlanta's diverse food landscape. Through discussions with voices from the community, we learn how the food of our past has evolved and taken unique shape in a modern metropolis.
