Date(s) - 26/01/2019
18:00 - 22:30


New Orleans is one of America’s food meccas – the vibrant mix of the city’s French, Spanish, African and Caribbean cultures are reflected in its local Creole and Cajun cuisines.

In our fifth “Cook-and-Dine” session, we will be embarking on a pilgrimage to New Orleans!

When:  Saturday, January 26th, starting at 18.00 hours till about 22.30 hours thereabouts

Where:  Janine and Robert’s home in Schwetzingen (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  Our pilgrimage begins with a savory Creole crab bisque.  Up next is a dish that epitomizes the melting pot nature of Louisiana cooking – Gumbo.  We will be making one with seafood.  For dessert there’s “Bananas Foster”, one of New Orlean’s most famous treats.

Please note that we need to start promptly at 18:00 hours so that the Gumbo simmers for at least 90 minutes to achieve the height of its flavour.  Janine will already prepare the seafood stock in advance, because we cannot have a good seafood gumbo without a good seafood stock!

There is space for 10 participants, online registration opens mid-December.  Once you have registered, make sure to let us know if you have any special dietary requests so that we may adjust the menu accordingly.
