The state of Mississippi has declared January as Culinary Month throughout the state. From the Visit Mississippi blog:
All month long communities around the state will be highlighting and celebrating notable restaurants, unique specialty items, take-home recipes and other local good eats. The state’s Welcome Centers will also join the action with displays, menus, samples and other information to help you satisfy your appetite while visiting the state.
And, if you make it to Mississippi this month--or any month!--be sure to check out our interactive map that features the 60+ oral history interviews that we've collected in the state. If you'll be driving to Mississippi, make sure to tak advantage of the trip builder feature that's part of our map, so you can eat with oral history subjects from Virginia to Texas.
