Among the dishes from the more than 65 participating chefs are a neck bone stew with foie gras fried rice and mustard from chef John Folse of Restaurant R'evolution; bacon bread pudding with beer cheddar sauce and a bourbon macaron from Salon by Sucre's Tariq Hanna; crispy smoked boudin, roasted apple raviolini and colatura from Maypop's Michael Gulotta; and sheepshead boudin crackling and caviar from GW Fins' Michael Nelson, among others.
A selection of Abita beers, Buffalo Trace bourbon cocktails, wines and Nat Sherman cigars also will be offered to attendees. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Langhorne Slim & the Law, Kristin Diable & the City and Silverado Pickups perform.
