Meeting an Icon

Ryan and I were lucky to meet Mississippi icon Malcolm White over the weekend and hear some of his stories from many years owning Hal and Mal’s, living in Jackson, and generally being involved in the Mississippi arts scene.

Ryan took plenty of notes and will be relaying some of Mr. White’s stories in “Classic Restaurants of Jackson.” In addition to meeting Mr. White, we also got to try some of Hal and Mal’s downhome Southern cooking. It was another great weekend of meeting interesting people, tasting great food, and learning about some truly great restaurants.

We have visited six restaurants and still have 12 to go before we are done. I could get used to this kind of work!
