 Buttermilk Fried Chicken
 Fried Chicken is a Southern favorite, and typically always eaten on Sundays, after church, but you will find it available, all over the South, from your high end restaurants, to your local convenience store gas stations!  Yup, Southerners do love their fried food, and especially fried chicken. 
Using buttermilk, for the coating, instead of regular milk, adds that extra crunchiness to the skin.

The 'Cookin' with the Mississippi Queen', cooking classes begin, as of this week....
I'm very proud to FINALLY announce the launch of the 'Cookin' with the Mississippi Queen', cooking classes, which will officially begin, as of this week, with 'Learn to Make Authentic Cajun Jambalaya (mild to spicy)'.  Other classes, such as 'Learn to Make Blackened Catfish' and 'Learn to Make Authentic Creole Gumbo', will roll out very soon, as well.  Be sure to stay tuned.
These classes can be taught to larger groups, at a local community centre, in South Etobicoke, or in the privacy of your home, if you have a small group, who would like to gather. 
Typical classes are $45 per person, for a two to three hour class, and include a very detailed handout, with pictures, outlining step-by-step instructions, on how to recreate these dishes, on your own, after the class.  Plus, the best part, is that we all eat the food we make!
Please contact me for further information on upcoming classes at
