JACKSON, Miss. – Noted chef, author, and restaurateur Robert St. John, along with his good friend and well-known artist Wyatt Waters, will be the hosts of an event that launches the pair’s new book, A Mississippi Palate at the Ag Museum in Jackson on October 24th.
This will be the fourth collaboration that St. John and Waters have released. This book will feature recipes, stories, and artwork from around Mississippi.
The event will be a four-course dinner prepared by St. John using recipes from the new book. He will prepare these on stage and regale the audience with stories as he cooks. While this is going on, Waters will be painting a water color picture that will be auctioned off at the end of the evening.
St. John and Waters are huge supporters of Mississippi agriculture, promoting local farmers and the things they produce every chance they get. All of St. John’s restaurants use local ingredients whenever possible. The proceeds from this event will go to the Farm Families of Mississippi, an organization dedicated to promoting the positive benefits that agriculture provides to the public.
Books will be available for purchase and the authors will sign and personalize them while you wait. A limited number of tickets are available here.
