Get an authentic taste of Memphis for your Bandwidth live streaming party

Recommended by our friends at Memphis Tourism, here are the Top 5 finger-licking meals direct from the Mississipi Delta.

1. Slow-Cooker Memphis-Style Ribs
There is nothing more quintessentially Memphis than these tender slow-cooker Memphis-style ribs.  Try making them at home with this recipe by Taste of Home. A little tip… move those napkins to the side because this recipe’s sweet and succulent sauce is so finger-licking good you won’t want to miss a drop.

2. Memphis Dry-Rubber Back Ribs
Many southerners believe that the most traditional way to prepare ribs is with the tangy texture and flavour of a dry rub. If you sit on the dry side of town in this age-old debate of ribs finished with a rub versus finished with a sauce, we have The Food Network recipe for you.

3.Memphis Dry Rub, Rendezvous-Style
In Memphis, barbequing is seen as an art form, and any Memphis Michelangelo knows their ribs should be painted with a palate of tantalising herbs and spices. Enjoy all the Memphis flavours with this mouth-watering Memphis Dry Rub Recipe Rendezvous Style from Amazing Ribs

4. Gus’ Fried Chicken Recipe
One southern staple that the whole family is bound to enjoy is this delicious duplication of Gus’ World Famous Fried Chicken which is a Tennessee food chain. The chicken’s golden coating will create a crunch and crackle so satisfying that Tommy Emmanuel will want to take you on tour as his personal chef.  We recommend the Bitten Word recipe

5. Memphis-Style Catfish
Another popular Tennessee meal is this tasty Memphis-style catfish which has the perfect amount of spice to satisfy adventurous taste buds. Its yummy remoulade sauce, crispy crust and tender fish makes it the ideal dish to enjoy while singing along to your favourite blues artists.  Try the Food Network recipe

So you see that whilst we’re all unable to travel to Memphis right now, we can still experience the southern city’s wonderful food scene.
