Book Club Menu

I’ve heard from lots of readers asking about a book club menu. Smack Dab is set in my home state of Mississippi, and it only seemed fitting to design a menu around Mississippi products! In my research to find genuine Mississippi recipes and products, I discovered that the Mississippi Department of Agriculture has a website where you can find links to Mississippi producers

A few notes about the menu:

The menu features my family’s own recipes that have been handed down! I’m not sure who invented them, but they sure are all delicious! My cousin Elizabeth is an amazing cook and she’s helped me to create videos of how to make our favorite family recipes. Check out the menu for links to her videos! In my (biased) opinion, my mother makes the best fried catfish in the world, so of course I’ve also included a video of how to make this delicious dish!

Follow the link below for the full menu! All the recipes and video guides are linked within the menu. I hope you enjoy tasting a bit of my Mississippi favorites!
