SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - While on the mission to find the best beach food in the country, the Cooking Channel's Katie Lee is making a pit stop in the Gulf Coast.
Beginning on Thursday, June 7, she'll be diving in to the ultimate dining experience in Ocean Springs and Biloxi on the season premiere of "Beach Bites with Katie Lee". She will explore the Biloxi's historic seafood culture and even fish for one of her meals. The show also recognizes Ocean Springs as a budding artistic community with a knack for unique eateries.
In the half-hour long episode, Lee will get a taste of Southern classics like chicory coffee, gumbo and homemade buttery biscuits.
As Coast cities continue to boost tourism incentives, South Mississippi is gaining more recognition as a hot spot in the restaurant industry.
