Chef, restaurateur, and author Robert St. John and watercolorist Wyatt Waters are pleased to introduce their latest collaboration, a hardback book entitled A Mississippi Palate: Heritage Cuisine and Watercolors of Home. The book marks the fourth partnership between the two notable Mississippians.

A Mississippi Palate delivers 105 recipes, each with a Mississippi connection. Readers will enjoy delving into these recipes for delicious favorites from the Hill Country to the Gulf Coast. The book includes easy-to-follow recipes for basic staples such as roasted corn, biscuits, and fudge cake. It also offers creative twists on common Mississippi standards, with recipes for Creole Catfish, Oysters Rockefeller, and Crawfish Mac & Cheese.

“Working on our fourth book together was a totally different experience than when we began working together 10 years ago,” says St. John. “Back then we were just getting to know each other, and now we are best friends who can finish each other’s sentences. I think it shows in the work. I hope readers of this book will experience the fondness we both have for our state, its people and its food traditions.”

The 136-page book is beautifully illustrated by Waters, who traversed the state to recreate some of its most indelible images, such as the Jackson skyline, roadside crosses on Highway 25, and the Canton courthouse.

“My childhood was spent traveling the state and seeing the many unique aspects that make up its history,” says Waters. “It’s been a joy to depict the culture and traditions of different areas as I’ve traveled with Robert to work on this book. I hope that readers will find some places they recognize as well as some places they want to visit and discover for themselves.”

St. John and Waters previous collaborated on A Southern Palate, Southern Seasons, and An Italian Palate.
