the buzz





The Magnolia State is a Deep South state situated along the Gulf Coast between Louisiana and Alabama. When viewed on a map, Mississippi’s western border looks something like the metal edge of a spiral notebook, all squiggly lines the result of a meandering Mississippi River gently looping its way to the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the world’s most fertile soil is found in the Mississippi Delta, a rich alluvial plain between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers in northwest Mississippi. Historically, the delta has been a prime area for growing sugar, rice, cotton, and soybeans. Mississippi shares with Louisiana a history of Creole cooking and some French influence, particularly in the cooking of the affluent. But it is Mississippi’s flavorful, down-home cooking that takes the prize, including ribs and beans, cornbread, turnip greens, fried catfish and hushpuppies, and Mississippi mud pie.
