The Delta History of Southern Cooking
Tired of the same ole, same ole on the menu?
Good. Because in the Delta, we don’t even know what "the usual" means.
If you've never picked your own T-bone from the restaurant freezer or signed the wall of a BBQ joint after scarfing down a plate of chopped pork, or tasted Mississippi soul food or Delta hot tamales with a side of fried dill pickles, you’re in line for a straight-up education in the history of southern cooking and the experience that is dining in the Delta.
You'll find 100 year-old restaurants where the waitresses know customers by name. Downtown cafes where they serve homemade pies by day and live blues by night. And turn of the century buildings-turned-fine dining establishments with walls packed full of local art.
The bottom line is that no matter where you decide to eat, one thing’s for sure: there’s never a dull moment at the dinner table in the Delta.
