Mardi Gras Menu with Chef Ben Halperine

Class Description

Tues., Feb. 21, 6-8PM

Fat Tuesday is historically the time to use up butter and cream in the house in preparation for the austerity of the 40 day Christian observance of Lent. In New Orleans, Fat Tuesday evolved into its own party, Mardi Gras. N’Orleans Chef Ben Halperine brought Mardi Gras favorites to Iowa when he opened Augusta Restaurant. Join Chef Ben as he demonstrates the preparation of Gumbo, Jambalaya, Maque Choux (a traditional creamed corn dish that is a blend of Cajun and Native American influences), and Beignets (French-style doughnuts). Sample-sized portions will be served.
