Join the Louisiana Landmarks Society
for a unique Vino on the Bayou experience!
Friday, November 11, 2011
5:30 – 7:30 PM
1440 Moss Street | New Orleans, LA |
Next to Cabrini High School
In addition to the live music provided by the Pitot House’s favorite jazz band, TJB, Landmarks has partnered with Pelican Publishing Company to bring you the charismatic duo Peggy Scott Laborde and Tom Fitzmorris signing their new book on New Orleans food history Lost Restaurants of New Orleans: and the recipes that made them famous.
Closing the Vino on the Bayou experience, Elizabeth Pearce, culinary historian at the Hermann-Grima House and Senior Curator for the Southern Food and Beverage Museum from 2004-2008, will intrigue and educate guests using one of New Orleans’ iconic drinks, the Sazerac, with her “History in a Glass” presentation. Pearce will demonstrate how to make the Sazerac, and using the ingredients and the history of its creation, will tell the story of the music, cuisine, and architecture of New Orleans.
Oh yeah, did we mention guests will wet their palate with the Sazerac before leaving?
“While the Hurricane may be New Orleans’ most famous drink,
the Sazerac is full of history and is arguably one of the country’s oldest cocktails.”
Guests will also have the option to purchase a tasty dish of Mr. Mudbug jambalaya.
No reservations. Guests pay at the gate. Memberships available at the gate and online at http://www.louisianalandmarks.org/?q=membership.
