One of the great ironies of working in the food industry is that you rarely get to eat in a restaurant. You work when other people are eating, and eat when other people are sleeping.
On your days off, you relish the chance to cook something for yourself, if you have the energy. If not, takeout is the name of the game. Sit-down meals in restaurants are few and far between. Sit-down meals in restaurants with your spouse are even more rare.
In the two decades we have lived and cooked in Hattiesburg, we have learned this to be true – Hattiesburgers love to eat. Whether making a mad dash to get to the Downtown Farmer’s Market before all the choice tomatoes are sold, debating where to get the best shrimp po-boy, or indulging in our love of any and all things topped with Creole cream sauce, we come alive around food.
