Dish It Out.

We love the "Dish It Out" section of Mississippi Magazine. Would you try to get the recipe for the Creamy Dill Chicken Salad from Davidson's Corner Market in Canton? It was the best I have ever had! Thanks for your help.

CREAMY DILL CHICKEN SALAD

12 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
1 cup celery, diced

3/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Davidson's Corner Market is located on the courthouse square in downtown Canton. Its charming interior is inviting for lunch, when fresh salads, sandwiches, soups, and a daily special are served. The dinner menu is always interesting, with chef "Chuck" Donald creating delicious steaks, seafood, and pastas and a chef's special on Friday and Saturday. Live entertainment on the weekends adds to the eclectic atmosphere.

Known for its wide array of takeout-ready casseroles and specialty desserts, Davidson's also offers box lunches with delivery, as well as a full catering service for any gathering from a small party to a large wedding reception. The restaurant serves lunch from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday and dinner from 5-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and 5-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday. 108 W. Center St., Canton; 601/855-2268; www.davidsonsrestaurant.com.

I recently had the pleasure of eating at Weidmann's Restaurant in Meridian. The atmosphere and music were wonderful! I ordered the black bottom pie, and it was too good! Would the chef ever give out the recipe for this extraordinary pie?

BLACK BOTTOM PIE

CRUST:

1 (12-ounce) box ginger snaps
8 ounces butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cookies in the bowl of a
food processor, and pulse until fine. Add melted butter, and
pulse until well mixed. Press into an 8- or 9-inch pie pan, and
bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool.

GANACHE:

1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup cream
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur

In a medium saucepan, heat sugar, butter, and cream to a boil.
Stir in chocolate. When mixture is cool, add amaretto. Pour
into cooled Crust, and refrigerate until set.

CHOCOLATE PASTRY CREAM:

1 cup milk
4 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 teaspoon amaretto liqueur
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
Whipped cream (optional)

Heat milk and 2 tablespoons sugar until
it reaches a boil. Remove from heat.
Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar
with cornstarch, and whisk into egg
yolks. Add a small amount of hot milk to
eggs, whisking constantly, and add more
hot milk until all is incorporated. Return
pan to heat, and bring to a boil, stirring
constantly. Remove from heat, and whisk
in butter, amaretto, and melted chocolate.
Spread evenly over cooled Ganache,
and refrigerate until pie is set. Serve with
whipped cream if desired.


Weidmann's Restaurant is one of Meridian's most treasured landmarks. Originally opened in 1870 by Swedish immigrant Felix Weidmann, the restaurant's folklore and history are as appealing as its great food and charming atmosphere. Many things have remained, such as the "wall of photographs" containing historical snapshots of celebrities, local patrons, and employees that capture times gone by. A small crock of peanut butter and a stack of crackers still await each diner at his table, and if children behave they still may pick a surprise from the "treasure chest." Chef Willie McGehee serves incredible dishes and house specialties including grilled free-range chicken and delicately fried oysters.

Weidmann's is open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m and 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. 210 22nd Ave., Meridian; 601/581-5770.
