Now You're Talking with Marshall Ramsey


Malcolm White | Mr. St. Paddy

There’s a name synonymous here in the capital city and possibly the entire state, with not only great food, but also St. Patrick’s Day… just say Malcolm White and both are covered. Malcolm White is a restaurateur, promoter, food enthusiast, author of numerous articles about food in Mississippi, creator of award-winning recipes in the Southern genre and host of MPB Think Radio’s Deep South Dining.

He’s also the former owner of Hal & Mal’s restaurant in downtown Jackson and founder of the annual Hal’s St. Paddy’s Parade. He is here to tell his story, his life growing up in Mississippi, projects that he’s passionate about, and of course St. Patrick’s Day!
