Three fried chicken and biscuits sandwiches on a baking sheet with a bowl of honey beside and drizzled around the sandwiches.

Fried Chicken and Biscuits

A southside cocktail on a napkin on a silver tray with a potato chip and sprig of mint beside it.

Two bowls of North Carolina clam chowder with a torn slice of bread, two empty bowls, and several spoons beside them.

North Carolina Clam Chowder
