Over the past few months, I’ve been diligently working away on an upcoming book titled Food Lovers’ Guide to Memphis. The book’s publisher, Globe Pequot Press, is hoping for a year-end release. Of course, I have to finish writing the book first, and that’s where you can help.
The book is a travel guide of sorts to restaurants, specialty markets, and artisan purveyors. It has a nice local spin (no franchises!) and is organized in chapters by location. I’m working now on the chapters for Cordova, Collierville, and Bartlett. Since I don’t live or work in these neighborhoods, I’m worried about missing restaurants or markets people like. For instance, I’ve read about a gourmet store in Cordova specializing in spices, but I can’t remember its name.
So please help. If you have favorite restaurants, markets, or producers in the suburbs, send your suggestions to email@example.com or leave a comment on the Memphis magazine Facebook page. I’d love to hear from you.
