What a fun evening with Paul & Tracy Beauregard as they took us on a 'ride' into the life of a Louisianan. Paul & Tracy brought along their Creole music to set us in the mood, provided the historical significance of each dish they made, and gifted each guest with Mardi Gras beads and colorful napkins. Paul started the evening off with his mouth-watering Cajun crab cakes and remoulade sauce. mmmm,mmmm good! Thank goodness Paul had plenty on hand because everyone was asking for seconds. I may have even seen some ask for thirds. Oh, wait! That was me, haha. Paul revealed that the secret behind a great gumbo is in the roux. He also revealed what it is that makes the beans so tender in his Red Beans and Rice. Tracy made the traditional and oh-so-delicious King Cake complete with the hidden baby, promising the finder a year of prosperity & good luck. Our guest, Rick, found the baby in his piece and won a prize.
Truly a delightful evening! Stay tuned.....our class list for April and May will be out within the next two weeks.
