Plot Synopsis

SOMEWHERE SOUTH is a six-part docuseries that follows chef, author and restaurateur Vivian Howard, as she explores dishes that are uniting cultures and creating new traditions across the American South. Along the way, she meets new friends and teachers, and as she says, discovers "how breaking bread and sharing a meal can create a comfortable place to have meaningful, memorable conversations." With each one-hour episode, Vivian finds that although we're different, our appetites are very much the same. For example, in North Carolina, Vivian samples the collard sandwich, a staple of Lumbee Indian cuisine, with native Lumbee home cooks for whom Southern hospitality is a fundamental way of life. She also travels to West Virginia to sample the pepperoni roll, a regional convenience food made popular by coal miners. In Charleston, SC, where rice is king, Vivian enjoys grits and rice middlins with respected Gullah chefs whose cuisine is the backbone of the city's bustling food scene.
