Hi Kristen,

Well, I don't have, and could not find, any George Street Grocery recipes at all. Nor could I find any from the "Old Tavern on George Street", which is what's at that location now. I lived in Jackson several years in the 1970s, but I never dined there.

I'll post this for reader input.


George street Grocery in Jackson, Mississippi and located near the state Capitol was a 
watering hole that served food -- and had a parade of owners and cooks. The food changed 
with the owners and cooks, and that was often. So, there are no written recipes. It all 
depended on who was cooking that day. 


Please sign your real first name to all recipe requests.

Please don't type in all capital letters.

If you have more than one request, please send them in separate e-mails.
