Mammy’s for chicken salad

NATCHEZ, Miss. — Foodies love Mammy’s Cupboard.

Housed in a 1940s architectural icon, it is a favorite lunch stop.

Shreveporter Martha Ann Evans and Dallas jeweler Joe Pacetti-De’Medici treated a bunch of us to lunch there while we were here for Shreveport restaurateur John Cariere’s 42nd birthday. It is small, but lots of fun.

Sandwiches are on home-baked breads and the blueberry lemonade is served out of wide-mouth jars. There are also daily luncheon specials such as Brazilian black beans, yellow rice, and broccoli corn bread and chicken rosemary. "The food is finger lickin’ good," said Shreveporter June Porter.

It was built by Henry Gaude and is still owned by his family.

And well worth the trip to 555 Highway 61 South — Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
