Mississippi Delta & Beyond

Andrew Zimmern explores the iconic soul food of the Mississippi Delta on the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods Delicious Destinations. From fried catfish and hushpuppies to smothered oxtails and decadent mud pie, the Deep South’s down-home dishes soothe the soul.  Well we’re not all in the Mississippi Delta, but from the outside looking in, I guess we are “One Mississippi Many Stories” as the theme of the new Museum of Mississippi History suggests.  Let’s just add to that though, we are “One Mississippi, Many “Food” Stories”.   This piece gives you a little history of the food and its origin.  Jackson’s iconic Walker’s Drive-In, James Beard Award winning Bully’s and authentic Big Apple Inn are all featured.  Enjoy!
