About Big Bad Breakfast

Big Bad Breakfast began in Oxford, Mississippi by James Beard award-winning chef John Currence, who combines his New Orleans background with his Southern roots to make breakfast the most important meal of the day.

Currence was born and raised in New Orleans, where food is, “as much a part of life as air or water,” says John on the Big Bad Breakfast website.

Big Bad Breakfast is about more than offering great food choices to its patrons; it’s about giving people a taste of Currence’s childhood.

“But more than anything, I wanted to recapture the flavors of my childhood memory. Things don’t taste the same now with the degree of processing and preservatives/stabilizers added to food,” says Currence. “I wanted people to taste the flavors of my grandfather’s patty sausage and my great grandmother’s biscuits. So that’s exactly what we did,” he adds on the restaurant’s website.
