The critically-acclaimed original series State Plate, hosted by Taylor Hicks, is set to return to television on Friday, August 11th on the family-entertainment network INSP. In each episode of State Plate, Hicks goes on an unforgettable culinary tour across a particular state to assemble a plate of that state’s most emblematic foods. This season, Hicks makes his way to Mississippi to showcase the culinary experiences that our state has to offer.
Hicks tastes his way across Mississippi on a quest to discover the state’s most emblematic foods. Along the way, he visits the home of the blues to make the coolest food in the Delta: the “koolickle.” Taylor fishes the Mississippi River for fresh catfish without using a pole and grinds corn for homemade hushpuppies fried to golden perfection. He plants the delicious staple known as black-eyed peas and discovers how the decadent chocolate mud pie got its name. It’s an abundant plateful of Mississippi cuisine filled with the stories and legends behind the state’s tastiest foods.
The Mississippi episode of State Plate will air on Friday, August 18th at 7 p.m. CT.
