In West Point, Mississippi, Mama Hallie would cook nightly for her nine kids, and often the rest of the neighborhood. Her daughter Gustoria carefully watched her cooking methods, admiring her hawk-eyed focus on the art of presentation. Over the years, Gustoria became a mother herself, raising her kids Calvin, Diane, and John on those same country-style recipes.
In 2009, Diane—or “DeeDee”—began whipping up her grandmother’s recipes in a friend’s kitchen—making her own kitchen seethe with jealousy—with hopes to start her own business. Her success was quick and startling, and with more orders streaming in, Dee solicited the help of her brother Calvin to move into a larger facility. Finally, in 2010, DeeGusto’s opened upon the foundation of three generations of southern-style cooking. In the eatery’s cozy digs, patrons can nosh on John’s juicy smothered pork chops or Diane’s Dee-licious fried chicken, both paired with country sides such as potatoes and yams.
