Robert St. John | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, September 19, 2016

Robert St. John is an award-winning restauranteur, chef, and cookbook author. He opened his first restaurant, The Purple Parrot Café, in 1987 and has been changing the food scene of Hattiesburg since.

“Food builds community. I mean, food is the connective tissue that we carry, especially in the South, through everything. We share a meal, and then we share ourselves of that meal.”-Robert
