MississippiCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Mississippi's heritage is one of agriculture, and the state has a remarkable reputation for country cooking, fine dining and everything in between. Mississippi features a wide variety of unique culinary options, from shrimp and grits to fish tacos and Mississippi Mud Pie. A full menu of the world's most delectable dishes were first conceived between the Mississippi River and the Alabama state line. Mississippi is a true inspiration to foodies everywhere. Our many unique restaurants offer delicious cuisine for a lazy lunch or a night on the town. Several celebrity chefs call Mississippi home as well, among them "Iron Chef" Cat Cora, James Beard, and columnist and restaurateur Robert St. John. Pull up a chair, grab a glass of sweet tea and discover the taste of Mississippi today.
