3. He's from Texas, so not really "The South"

The recipe is from a well-known Creole/Cajun-style fine dining restaurant in Houston (Brennan's of Houston, a sister restaurant to Commander's Palace in New Orleans) that he worked at.

It makes a delicious cornbread, and the finished product does not have a lot of sweetness from the (relatively small amount of) sugar that is used in this recipe.

There are lots of ways to make a cornbread. It's one of those recipes where everyone has a different variation on it. I always shy away from saying "This is not authentic" or especially "this is not right" when dealing with a cuisine that has many variations. They're all delicious, this is just one presentation of it. As far as I'm concerned, flavour is more important than authenticity.
