“Southernness” is a complex concept. But for a cultural scholar like Rebecca Gordon, there’s no other way to live.
As Southern Living’s Test Kitchen Director, Gordon is an expert on not just Southern food but all the fanfare and community that comes along with it. That’s why she was one of the driving forces behind Southern Living’s “The Official SEC Tailgating Cookbook,” an in-depth companion to one of the South’s most entertaining traditions.
Gordon has a soft spot in her heart for Alabama Gulf Seafood, and her work in the Southern Living Test Kitchen is proof. In this video, she joins Chef Chris Hastings of Birmingham’s Hot and Hot Fish Club and Lucy Buffett of Gulf Shores’ Lulu’s at Homeport Marina to cook up “one of [her] favorite favorite Southern Living crab cake recipes”: Crab Cakes with Lemon Rémoulade.
