Interview by Southern Cultures, with a film by Jesse Paddock and photos by Baxter Miller

My name is Ricky Moore, I’m the chef, owner, and chief rocker of Saltbox Seafood Joint located in Durham, North Carolina—Bull City, U.S.A. My family came from Riverdale and they all moved to New Bern—a little small town, very historic, it used to be the capital of North Carolina way back when. New Bern is situated on two rivers—the Neuse and the Trent.

This will probably be the last time that I hold forth at length about corned hams. This treasure of eastern North Carolina culture has been a cause of mine since I discovered that no one had ever heard of it outside of the three or four counties around where I grew up—New Bern in Craven County. Now, the world has taken notice and my work is done. Proof of this is found in the meat counters of the Piggly Wigglys, where ham is returning after an absence of many years. I give its appearance on an episode of PbS's A Chef 's Life the credit for this. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
