In addition to selling restaurant equipment at J.E.S. I also work in the concert production industry and a couple weeks ago the gig landed me in Jekyll Island, GA for the 2010 Wild Georgia Shrimp & Grits Festival. This was not my first trip to Jekyll Island and made for the second consecutive year working at the festival. The festivities took place amongst the live oaks, which are older than our grandparents, in the beautiful historic district on the island just in front of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and it was obvious everyone had only one thing in mind, shrimp and grits! For those readers that still aren’t sure what “grits” are… grits are made from coarsely ground corn and when combined with hot water make a delicious porridge like food. Shrimp and grits however is a delicacy that has been served in the southern states for many many years and has as many variations as there are types of grits and species of shrimp but no matter how you prepare it the name remains the same.
