Our location – the beautifully restored B’nai B’rith Literary Association building (The BB Club) in historic downtown Vicksburg – provides an elegant backdrop for showers, announcement and bridesmaids parties, receptions, rehearsal dinners, banquets, luncheons, or any party you desire. Storycook Favorites continues the tradition of excellence in food preparation and event planning – as in the 1890s and early 1900s – when the BB Club was first established. Photos of The BB Club Ballroom and numerous downstatirs rooms provide a glimpse of its extraordinary beauty and elegance.
In her recently released book, Matzoh Ball Gumbo, Marcie Cohen Ferris write s: ‘the club’s building was completed in 1887 and included a banquet hall for five hundred guests that often filled to capacity for balls, banquets, lectures, and wedding receptions… “The club and club house is known all over this part of the Mississippi Valley as the center of the most lavish, yet refined, hospitality, while its cuisine under the direction of its accomplished caterers, past and present, is no less celebrated,” wrote the authors of Picturesque Vicksburg in 1891.’
Storycook Favorites also does off-site, full service catering. Story and her staff will bring the food and all the serving pieces, set up, replenish and clean up.
Storycook Favories also has a wide variety of convenient gourmet-to-go foods, which are available on site or a few blocks away at Petersons Arts and Antiques, 1400 Washington Street, Vicksburg (601-636-7210).
