EATYALL: Chefs Tell the Story of Farmers

Aug 24, 2019

In the second episode of Eat Y’alls two part series with guest host Matt Wyatt, Matt and Andy are joined by a handful of chefs and producers from across Mississippi who give an insider’s perspective on what keeps coming back to Eat Y'all Chef Camp, and why first-timer Cameron Shaw can hardly sleep just thinking about it. 

Listeners will also catch the story behind Chef Cole Ellis’s success bringing stunning, locally sourced dining to Cleveland, Mississippi, what got his restaurant Delta Meat Market listed in Southern Living, and some big news about his newest endeavor that you won’t want to miss.

Plus, hear from guests Lawrence Wagner of Two Brooks Rice in Sumner, MS, Cameron Shaw of Giardina’s in Greenwood, MS, and Andy Prosser of Simmons Catfish in Yazoo City, MS covering everything from the best rice grits to how tech is transforming the way fish are raised.

Simmons Farm-Raised Catfish is a family owned catfish farm located in Yazoo City, MS in operation since 1978. Heralded as some of the best catfish in the world, Simmons’ absolute quality standards mean that fish from every pond are flavor tested once a day for three days before harvest. Then with a unique combination of state-of-the-art technology, skilled artistry and meticulous attention to detail, Simmons’ swift, sterile processing takes that quality to the next level, ensuring that each and every Simmons product—fillet or whole, ice-packed or IQF—is the very finest on the market, without exception.
