Cotton, Cooking, and Books


Greenwood, Mississippi is located about two hours south of Memphis in the heart of the Delta.  As noted on the city limit sign, Greenwood is the Cotton Capital of the World and is home to Viking Cooking Range and the Cooking School and to the independent store, Turnrow Books, where owner Jamie Kornegay and his wife, Kelly, hosted a wonderful book signing for me.  If you’re ever fortunate enough to travel to Greenwood, stay at the Alluvian, a cosmopolitan boutique hotel with a AAA four diamond rating.  A grand southern-style breakfast is included and caps off a relaxing experience.  While there, be sure to eat downtown at Steven’s BBQ for wonderful barbecue and super nice folks.  And you may see Greenwood on the silver screen soon.  The town is still a buzz after The Help was filmed there a few months ago and will be released in early August.
