Fat Tuesday Cooking Party! Take A Walk Down Bourbon Street
Bienvenue a vous-autres! Brimming with tradition, culture and flavor, Cajun, Creole and other southern-inspired styles of cooking are best exemplified by the dishes found in traditional New Orleans restaurants. And did you know that N'Awlin's fare is heavily influenced by French cooking?
No one knows this unique cuisine better than Chef Richard McPeake, who spent 25 years supervising the Seaport Cajun Café, one of Gilbert-Robinson’s restaurants located on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.
Chef Richard, an award-winning professional and graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, brings the dynamic flavors of Bourbon Street right smack into our kitchen tonight.
With a Hurricane in hand, we’ll work in twosomes to learn and practice essential culinary skills alongside Chef McPeake as he teaches you his techniques for preparing this interesting regional cuisine he knows and loves so well… including 'blackened' techniques using seasonings to their fullest; deep and complex sauces and stocks; the trinity (Cajun Mirepoix); making and using a dark roux; and much, much more!
Yes, we’ll learn some great recipes and culinary skills, yes, we’ll taste as we go and, yes, we’ll have some fun “down on the Bayou" as we learn to make Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, Shrimp in N’Aawlin’s Butter Sauce, Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Remoulade Sauce, Blackened combo of beef and salmon, Jambalaya Rice, and Corn & Pepper Sauté.
We’ll finish the evening with a hands-on dessert station where you’ll make a fancy Bananas Foster Flambé. That’s right! You’re gonna cook and flambé your own dessert! Ayee!
