Why you'll love your ​​​​Deep South holiday.

Welcome to the Deep South, where you should be prepared to gain a kilo – or two, three, four or five – and the overall motto is to eat, drink and be merry. Not hard in these neck of the woods. This is where calorie loaded recipes are shaped by history and ancestral hand-me-downs; century old secrets and grandma’s scribbles. Where Bourbon and Jack Daniels are both poured more freely than water, and where America's musical heartland can be found in every nook, cranny and dive of a bar. Ditch the diet and unbuckle your belt, Deep South dishes are worth expanding your waistline for.

With flavours built from history and shaped by generations, the five southern states of the US offer a taste sensation you won’t mind getting fat for. New Orleans is most definitely the musical blood supply; jazz may be the default style, but its cousins, the blues and country, don't live too far away. Memphis is where Elvis was discovered, along with rock n’ roll itself in the infamous Sun Studios. And from one king to another, the city’s influence stems further than music; venture to Lorraine Motel and pay your respects to Martin Luther King.
