In celebration of Tujague's 160th Anniversary, the French Quarter dining institution will host a one-night-only dinner prepared by renowned Chef John Besh. On Thursday, August 25, 2016, guests can enjoy a five course meal with wine pairings to benefit the John Besh Foundation.

According to Besh, "I am thrilled to be invited to participate celebrating Tujague's 160th year. I love the fact that we have many restaurants over 100 years old in New Orleans and our creole traditions are continuing for the next generation. We have the only indigenous urban cuisine left in America. We need to continue to celebrate those that have perpetuated this beautiful and delicious culture."

Priced at $115 per person (all-inclusive) the evening will start at 7PM with a champagne reception, followed by Besh's five course menu with wine pairings.

First Course
Fried Eggs, Caviar and Green Garlic
Château de Montfort, Crémant de Loire

Second Course
Daube Glace with Foie Gras, Horseradish and Gribiche
Paul Buisse, Sauvignon Blanc, Touraine

Third Course
Blue Crab Bisque with Cognac Cream and Tapioca
Billaud-Simon, Petit Chablis

Fourth Course
Duck Jambalaya with Fig Jus and Pickled Mustard Greens
Domaine Faiveley, Mercurey, La Framboisière

Fifth Course
Banana Bread Pudding
Blandy's Five-Year Malmsey Madeira

In addition to what is certain to be a memorable culinary experience, guests will also be able to purchase signed/ personalized cookbooks from Besh, as well as signed Tujague's cookbooks from culinary historian and author Poppy Tooker, who will also be in attendance.

Seating is limited and reservations are suggested by calling 504-525-8676. Tujague's is located at 823 Decatur Street in New Orleans' French Quarter. For information on the restaurant and other 160th Anniversary festivities, visit www.tujagues.com.

About the John Besh Foundation
Established in 2011, the John Besh Foundation provides scholarships, grants and loans to individuals in the New Orleans community with the passion, creativity and knowledge to enact change in New Orleans and Louisiana. Chef John Besh created the John Besh Foundation in order to better serve his community by bringing a focus to his efforts in New Orleans.
Through essential partnerships and generous donations, the Foundation promotes the preservation of the culinary history and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana through the cultivation of new talent and the support of local endeavors.
After Hurricane Katrina, many predicted that the city -and its proud culinary traditions- would never be the same. Instead, New Orleans rallied, and the return of po'boys and gumbo became a marker of that resurgence. The food of our city is at its best when it embraces the rich amalgamation of cultures the city represents. Likewise, the people of New Orleans will find their best future when we come together around a common table, something that the John Besh Foundation proposes to foster using the cross-cultural force of great food. Like food, which can represent sustenance and exuberance, relationships and new beginnings, the John Besh Foundation helps build up communities and encourages new growth. It celebrates New Orleans' past by building a lasting community -a culinary world- that can revel in what exists while sustainably cultivating further progress, talent, and opportunity.
