The Gulf Coast Table: A Taste of States


Join us at Jackson’s Steakhouse for a special food and wine event, The Florida Table: A State of Taste. The five-course food and wine pairing will be held on Thursday, November 10 at 5:30 p.m.

According to Executive Chef Irv Miller, “The coastal Gulf states that have a shoreline on the Gulf of Mexico are Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Here is where American food began and where today one can find the most interesting culinary diversity in the U.S.A. Just as Southern Cuisine is not a single cuisine, neither is the cooking from our Gulf states. Firmly rooted in the inland South, as well as the coastal Gulf of Mexico and its estuaries, foods of the Gulf Coast Table are comprised of distinct, yet homogeneous cooking ingredients and are repeatedly differentiated by heritage-styles.

With a storied food history among native inhabitants and early settlers, the Gulf Coast Table is now conveyed in modern and eclectic food ways. This dinner menu will capture the spirit of six states. Whether its setting a table with crab, oysters, red snapper or clams for a seafood feast or harvesting inland-farmed wild mushrooms and garden fresh herbs. The menu is regionally-inspired with five-course tastings using Gulf states specific ingredients and offering a glimpse into the new Gulf Coast Table.”
