In a Southern Kitchen (IASK) is a family website with a passion for sharing food, recipes, and experiences. As a trusted resource to home cooks of all levels, our goal is to share recipes in a way that’s accessible and carries on the traditions of cooking in the kitchen with Granny—to be a dynamic, authentic curator of the Southern food lifestyle while also exploring other cuisines.

As frequent travelers, we also promote accommodations and experiences through photos and recaps of our adventures.

Our readers are savvy and discerning, and we will only promote products or brands that we use and believe in wholeheartedly.

Lucy Brewer is the primary content creator for IASK, while her son Brian Harris is the grillmaster-Green Egg connoisseur. We’d love to work with you if you have something that will benefit our readers.

In a Southern Kitchen provides customized support for businesses and brands. If you’d like to work with us on a project, there are many ways we can collaborate:

Travel Reviews.

IASK readers love to hear about our travel experiences. If there’s a place you want us to visit and share, contact us.

Giveaways and Product reviews.

As a service to IASK readers, we frequently mention branded products that we use and love in the kitchen. If you have a high quality product, appliance, cookbook, etc., that will be of great value to In a Southern Kitchen readers, let us know. Acceptance to review a product does not guarantee a post or mention about that product. We will only write about products and/or host giveaways for products that we actually use, love, and believe in.

Company Events, Press Trips or Retreats:

Lucy is available to attend company events, press trips and/or retreats to share with IASK readers. We look forward to the opportunity to learn more about your brand, network with other attendees, and share the experience with readers via social media (if desired).  Follow-up blog post(s) can also be arranged.

Freelance Food Writing.

We love working with brands to develop unique and specific content for your products/services.  Whether that includes freelance recipe development, editorial writing, or other, we are available to discuss any ideas you may have.
