The Main Library downtown currently has a small exhibit on southern cooking. It contains books, memorabilia, and various items from around the state.
The exhibit is only in one display case, so don't go out of your way, but if you're at the River Market for lunch, by all means stop in and take a peek.
They have also set up a nice selection of books focusing on southern cooking available for check out next to the display. Check out a book and learn somethin!
