Mississippi Delta Chinese

Life in Chinese Grocery Stores


Chinese cooking, Southern style, down in the Delta

Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern went to Clarksdale on his Delta Blues episode and featured the Gilroy and Sally Chowfamily to showcase their creative blend of Cantonese cooking and Southern foods.   Here is a link to that delightful presentation.

          Also included in the segment was a visit to Kim Wong's kitchen where pork, and chicken, chittlin's are made in over a dozen giant sized woks full of superhot oil. 

          There also another segment with Sally preparing pig tails and black eyed peas that was not included in the episode, but well worth seeing.  

Bon appetit, y'all!

My husband Jim and daughter Caroline were fortunate enough to experience Aunt Sally, Uncle Gil, Audric and Alice's cooking techniques first hand. My foodie husband Jim was in awe!!! Caroline was inspired by the very warm Chow style southern hospitality.
