Louisiana is a state that runs deep in tradition. These traditions play homage to the blends of French, Spanish, African, Sicilian, Caribbean, Irish, German and America Indian cultures that contributed to the complex cultural landscape that shines in every city corner and in the heart of every Cajun, Creole, or Louisiana transplant. Join us in a celebration of the state that gave us jambalaya, beignets, and the muffuletta (among other things…). We’re adding a dash of country comfort and a pinch of sophistication to some of the best food in the South, which means our guests should come prepared to savor forkfuls of the traditions, culture, and culinary perfection that have earned the state it’s legacy. Party like a Cajun at this outdoor evening event, which will feature classic dishes from a team of Louisiana chefs, two whole hogs over a live fire, a live zydeco band, craft beer, wine and specialty cocktails from the Cure New Orleans team.
