If the Taste of Mississippi Sponsor Appreciation Party is any indication, this year’s Taste of Mississippi is going to be one of the best. Sponsors and guests were excited to get a first glimpse of the signature art piece by Billy Solitario out of New Orleans and food samplings from last year’s restaurant winners left everyone ready for more.

This will be the 29th annual Blue Cross & Blue Shield Taste of Mississippi – a Benefit for Stewpot Community Services: Homegrown Hunger Relief, and will bring together dozens of Mississippi chefs and fine restaurateurs to share their culinary favorites on Monday, April 4th, 2016 at 7 p.m. at Highland Village.

The event is a Jackson-area favorite and has been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society. Taste of Mississippi is a night for party-goers and business men and women to mingle and network, sample some of Mississippi’s finest cuisine, purchase silent auction items and artwork, and dance the night away to live music!
