The Mississippi Egg Board announces the winners of the 2022 Devil’s Egg Contest

Now there may be someone in Clarksdale who makes better patterned eggs any Sunday, but the Mississippi egg slab has made their choice.

The Mississippi Egg Marketing Council and the Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association are pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Mississippi Best Deviled Eggs competition. Honoring the honor are ‘Truffle Deviled Eggs’, a creation by Chef Nic Swogger from City Grocery in Oxford, ‘Deviled Eggs’, It is a staple on the menu at Table 100 at Flowood.

Recognizing that there have been some tough times for restaurants in the state since the onset of COVID-19, the Mississippi Egg Marketing Board and the Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association have created an exciting opportunity for restaurants to promote a patterned egg dish, to help support this vital industry.

With Chef John Currence at the helm of his first restaurant project, City Grocery began offering the most innovative food in northern Mississippi, and came as the perfect fulfillment of the concept John envisioned. The hardwood floors and exposed tiled walls of a decorated late 19th century stable in Oxford Square provide the perfect backdrop for the view it holds. Casual elegance is the theme that Grocery City is built around. Dishes are crafted according to the classic John-taught technique with a backbone of local and seasonal ingredients to personalize the offerings on the menu.

Table 100 is the brainchild of local entrepreneurs and restaurateurs Bill Latham and Al Roberts. Opened in 2010, Table 100 is a stylish destination piano bar. Featuring live music, first-class craft drinks and a choice of wine, it’s a great place to gather with friends or business partners. The name derives from a combination of the restaurant’s location and a private table that appeared in the dining room constructed by Mississippi craftsman Greg Harkins. The inviting and cozy dining room is a popular gathering place for locals. The talented culinary team focuses on local and regional influences, using local farmers’ suppliers and available seasonal produce.
