Chef John Currence, owner of the famous City Grocery restaurant in Oxford, Mississippi, was kind of enough to put Freshwater Prawns on his menu! If you are in the area, definitely stop by and try them...he tells us they are a hit!
From the chef's mouth:
"Lauren Farms offers a truly unique opportunity to chef and diner in Mississippi: to work with and taste a product that is entirely of a place and one that is a milestone in purity. From the moment we tried our first Lauren Farms prawn, it had a home on our menu."
- John Currence
Currence recently took home the Best Chef: South region award at the James Beard Foundation Awards in New York. The Beard Awards is the nation's most prestigious recognition program honoring professionals in the food and beverage industries.
We are proud and honored to have him support the freshwater prawn. Thanks, Chef!
