Eat Y'all Chef Camp at Simmons Catfish

Eat Y'all Chef Camp at Simmons Catfish

Check out what happens at an Eat Y’all Chef Camp! This chef camp took place at Simmons Farm-Raised Catfish near Yazoo City, MS. Fifteen chefs attended to learn about this sustainable, vertically integrated fish farm that pays extraordinary attention to taste and quality. You’ll learn more about Simmons Catfish, why its a great choice for a restaurant menu and why – if you’re a chef – you should seek to attend an Eat Y’all Chef Camp.

Simmons is Classic American Quality, goodness that’s great for the future and great for today. Every time a shipment of Simmons Farm Raised Catfish goes to a customer, Harry Simmons knows the Simmons name is on it. “I guess the whole thing boils down to this: I’m proud of my family’s good name. I won’t put it on a product that doesn’t deserve to be called “Simmons!”

Chefs featured in this video include Chefs Cameron Shaw from Greenwood, MS, Scott Simpson from Auburn, AL, Robbie Nicolaisen from Auburn, AL, Jeff Stanford from New Albany, MS and Restaurateur Ryan Rogers from Louisville, KY.

Thanks also to Lawrence Wagner from Two Brooks Rice and Paige Manning from the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce representing Genuine MS who attended and contributed their thoughts on this video.


Because collaboration between producers and chefs provides a sustainable path to mutual long-term business stability and growth for both, Eat Y’all equips and connects farmers and artisan food producers to chefs who are looking for better ingredients.
