Robert St. John & Wyatt Waters with A MISSISSIPPI PALATE

Robert St. John and Wyatt Waters have done it again! These Mississippians are pleased to introduce their fourth collaboration. With St. John's innovative versions of traditional and contemporary Mississippi recipes, along with Waters' famed watercolors of the state's most indelible images, it's sure to be another classic from the pair that brought us A Southern Palate, Southern Seasons, and An Italian Palate.
