TASTE OF LOUISIANA COOKING DEMOS
This stage is dedicated to demonstrations of traditional Cajun and Creole dishes for every palate plus there are samples tasting and recipe sheets to take home!
This venue has shade, folding chairs and voice amplification so everyone can catch the all important tips from our guest chefs. The Mesa College Culinary Arts Department hosts this stage and staff and guest teachers entertain and enlighten while creating each dish before your eyes.
The Chefs relate the origin of each dish and the culture from which it evolved. Just how does Cajun differ from Creole in the kitchen? Why sassafras? What goes into the “trinity”? What dishes came from the Native Americans, the French, the West Africans, the Spanish?
