New Orleans: A Food Biography and Dinner at Dijon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dijon Partners with Southern Food and Beverage Museum to Host a Special Dinner

A portion of the proceeds to benefit SoFAB


New Orleans cuisine has been influenced by a multitude of different ethnicities, which has lead to the creation of one of the most distinctive and exciting food cultures worldwide. On Sunday, March 10, Dijon (located at 1379 Annunciation St. in the Lower Garden District), in conjunction with Southern Food & Beverage Museum, will host a unique event entitled "New Orleans: A Food Biography and Dinner at Dijon." The dinner will showcase some of the flavors, spices and cooking techniques brought to New Orleans by early settlers, which have played a pivotal role in shaping New Orleans' culinary identity.

In addition to the special menu crafted by Executive Chef Daniel Causgrove of Dijon, Liz Williams, President and Director of SoFAB, will present a lecture on her new book "New Orleans: A Food Biography." All-inclusive cost for the lecture/cocktail hour with passed hor d'ouevres and four-course, seated dinner is $90 per person or $120 per person with suggested wine pairings.  A portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to the museum. Seating is limited and advanced reservations are highly recommended by calling (504) 522-4712 or visitingdijonnola.com.

The event will begin at 6 pm with the lecture by Williams, featured St. Germaine cocktails including the St. Honore ‘75 and the Traditional Elderfashioned, and passed hor d'oeuvres during the reception. Chef Causgrove's special menu will follow the reception and will highlight African, French, German, Italian, Native American, and Spanish influenced dishes as described below.
