The Deep South of America is my dream destination and the top of my wish list. I guess a lot of our dreams come about from intangible ephemera like favourite movies we watch over and over again, well-thumbed books and pored over imagery. I know my fascination with The South started in my teens and with the discovery of the spine-tingling novels of Gothic writer Anne Rice which described New Orlean’s haunting historic districts in luscious detail.




Since then I have greedily drunk up any literature, films and articles about the atmospheric South – from comforting Rom-Coms set in Alabama, to darkly funny TV shows like True Blood to deliciously deep-fried food programmes and enthralling supernatural books. Adding weight to my curiosity is that of recent, The South has also become a huge draw for emerging designers and home ware brands with favourites like Anthropologie mining the South for unusual and evocative designs.

Sealing the fate of my love affair with The South is my new online obsession – the amusingly titled Garden and Gun. A beautifully designed and styled magazine [available online and in print] the magazine celebrates the rich culture, food, music, and art of the Deep South. Traditional Southern recipes with a twist like Krispy Kreme Brulee and jewel coloured Rose Gimlets sit alongside evocative tales of local syrup farmers in Texas, reviews of off the beaten track Cajun family-run eateries and too cool for school indie rockers of the South all mixed up with poignant narratives of The South’s history. Enough to sate my daily dose of Southern Comfort… for now.

Very cool looking magazine, kind of like a deep south version of ‘Fieldsports Magazine’ which my boyfriend reads. I make fun of him then read it when he’s out! Cool post, thanks Rohini

Enjoying your blog….and was impressed by your love of ‘The South’. Was born, raised and I live here in the South. I love it too! One of my favorite books (and now a movie) is Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Many of the characters are eccentric but very believable! I was born halfway between Charleston and Savannah, and I love visiting New Orleans.
