When: Tue., Jan. 8, 7 p.m. 2013
Jackson, Miss.-native and former AJC food editor Susan Puckett signs copies of her new book, Eat Drink Delta, on Tues., Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. at Manuel's Tavern. Puckett brings outsiders inside the Mississippi Delta region in this work that's part travel guide, part cookbook, and part photo essay. Searching beyond barbecue and meat-and-threes, Puckett explores back roads, backwaters, and back kitchens, sharing everything from Kool-Aid pickles and sweet tea-brined chicken to prawn-topped grits and savory tamales. A Cappella Books hosts the event.
