ABOUT THE TRAIL

The Southern Foodways Alliance and Viking Range Corporation created the Mississippi Delta Hot Tamale Trail in an effort to document the history, tradition, and culture of hot tamales from Tunica to Vicksburg. An on-going project, there will be regular additions to the oral history archive, as well as to the locations on our interactive map.

The Mississippi Delta Hot Tamale Trail offers cultural tourists a complete guide to a unique culinary experience. So head to the Mississippi Delta, which has been called “the most Southern place on earth” for its unique history, music, culture, and yes, its food.

Grab a shuck and go!
