Christy Jordan

Athens State to host lecture by Christy Jordan of Southernplate.com

Southern cuisine afficienado and creator of Southernplate.com, Christy Jordan, will speak at Athens State on Tuesday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. in McCandless Hall on the Athens State campus.   The event is offered free to the public and no reservations are required. 

“We relate our experiences to what was served, what was prepared,” says Jordan.  “Celebrations center around dishes steeped in tradition and memories of Great Granny preparing her special rolls or pie.”

Jordan spent her childhood hearing stories from her great grandmother about a lifetime of sharecropping and her childhood filled with memories of wonderful food.  These stories, born from the tradition of great Southern cooks, have been firmly embedded in the family root system generations earlier when they were among the first to settle the Tennessee Valley.

Now, the Home Ecomonics degreed busy mom and wife works from home with a laptop on the kitchen counter and her iPhone to her ear as she tries to build a business which I had originally begun purely as a hobby.  

“My days are spent responding to hundreds of emails,” explains Jordan.  “I take photographs of food, write columns for newspapers and magazines, manage a website, film cooking segments for television spots, and try to wrangle in time to talk on the phone to food industry execs.”

Jordan’s website, Southern Plate.com, is a rapidly growing site. During the first year alone SouthernPlate.com generated over 18 million page views.  The site now averages over 6 million page views per month and has just begun its second year.
