The Deep South
Rolling green hills, beautiful horse farms, world-renowned distilleries like George Dickel or Jack Daniels and a mecca for music make up the region of middle Tennessee where Nashville is the capital city. Tennessee is the place to be for top-notch barbecue and homestyle cooking. But if you think the states culinary offerings all lie on the casual side, you’ll miss out on some of the finest food around.
One major road, the I-65 bisects the state from north to south and is the main artery through Alabama. It’s a place where each meal is a celebration and each town has a story. Thanks to the popular culture such as Sweet Home Alabama and Forrest Gump the name Alabama often evokes expectations of cute country towns and simple living and in some respects that is true with its unpretentious local diners. But Alabama’s larger cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville and Mobile also offer chic restaurants, stylish bars, superb museums and galleries showcasing Alabama’s history and heritage.
Louisiana is a state known for rich culinary traditions, good times and eating in Louisiana is a delicious culinary adventure and you have to try a slice of Louisiana pie. New Orleans is the city that never sleeps, open 24 hours a day with a love for life that is contagious. Walk through the 17th century cobbled streets, relax with a cocktail in a sun drenched courtyard or enjoy street theatre in the French Quarter that delights in budding artists. For an entirely different vibe, embark on a guided nighttime ghost tour of the French Quarter – if you’re not afraid of the dark!
