Western South

The Western South follows the shoreline of the Mississippi River from the eastern border of Louisiana up into Arkansas, then heads overland to take in Oklahoma before slipping back through Texas to the Gulf Coast and the Rio Grande. Along the way, this sub-region encounters a number of cuisines, from the French- and Spanish-inspired cooking of Louisiana, to the beef-based barbecue and Tex-Mex traditions of Texas. Perched on the border between the South and the Midwest, Oklahoma and Arkansas serve as magnets for attracting the best cooking and food traditions of both regions.
