Thanksgiving weekend in Arkansas has a special event associated with it: The Duck Festival, in Stuttgart, where the World Championship Duck Gumbo Cookoff takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
So At Home took a jaunt to the Arkansas Delta this month, getting the scoop first hand on where a gal might want to shop and antique if she was visiting the region for the festivities. We visited with our friend Cathy Campbell, co-owner of the gift and home furnishings shop Handworks and the new antique venue City Limitless, and she had great tips for where to go and what to do in the region. You can see the full story here.
In honor of the Duck Festival, and our fun Delta journey, we’re giving away two books highlighting the region.
First Shooting Light, which is a photographic journal of hunting clubs in the Mississippi flyway, and
Wild Abundance, a cookbook anthology of the region, which includes a section with Little Rock’s own Lee Richardson, executive chef of Ashley’s in the Capital Hotel. We took a sneak peek at his own kitchen too, here. If you’d like to win this wonderful pair of books, leave a comment and you’ll be entered in the drawing (to take place on November 16th).
