  • The Emeril Lagasse Foundation's 6th annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer festival takes over Champion Square on Nov. 4.

The Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer bash takes over Champion Square on Nov. 4. More than 60 chefs will offer their spin on the sausage, and organizers released a list of some of the menu offerings on Monday. The mix of  traditional and unorthodox items includes a vegetarian smoked mushroom boudin from Frank Brigtsen, wild boar boudin blanc from Delmonico’s Anthony Scanio and boudin-stuffed squid with bacon dashi aioli from Coquette’s Kristen Essig and Michael Stoltzfus.

Along with the long roster of local talent, there’s a host of big-name chefs from around the country, including Ed Lee of Milkwood and 610 Magnolia in Louisville, Kentucky, Phoenix’s Beau MacMillan, Kevin Fonzo of K Restaurant in Orlando, Florida, and Memphis, Tennessee's Kelly English, among others.

Now in its sixth year, the event is hosted by Emeril Lagasse and co-chairs Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski and John Currence. Tickets are $99 and include all food, beverage and entertainment (purchase tickets here:). All proceeds benefit the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the New Orleans-based charity dedicated to creating opportunities and mentorship for youth interested in culinary, nutrition and arts education.
