Slow-roasting a whole 'hog' is a big deal in the South, and roadside restaurants will use that pork in all sorts of delicious ways. I've made a deconstructed version of a roadside restaurant meal here by roasting half a shoulder of pork, dressing it with fresh flavours and serving it with my take on their traditional coleslaw. I wasn't really into all the added sugar so I swapped it for slices of apple, which works brilliantly and serves the same purpose, but in a much fresher way. Put these things together on a plate and throw in a few hush puppies like they do in Georgia and you've got yourself a proper Southern-style meal.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
