March 1 | Date Night Mardi Gras Gumbo YaYa A/TX


“First you make a roux…..” 

A little magic, a little science, a little art, Gumbo is a Creole cook’s expression of affection, a one pot love affair for friends and family, alike. 

There are as many types of gumbo as there are Thibodeaux in Louisiana, but the one you’ll find most often on a Cajun-country stove is Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo, traditionally referred to as Gumbo Ya-Ya. Join market chef and food writer Maggie Perkins, of Notes from Maggie’s Farm, as she breaks down the basic bones of this iconic dish, beginning with the mighty and indispensable ROUX.

You’ll be as entertained as you are enlightened by hints, tips, family secrets, and raucous stories about life in Bayou Country while learning to prepare and feasting on Gumbo Ya-Ya, served with a little twist. Just in time for the Mardi Gras season, you’ll be throwing around lagniappes and who-dats by Fat Tuesday. 

Come join us, cher, it’s going to be a BIG TIME. C’est si bon! Each ticket is for 1 person- a couple must purchase 2 tickets.

March 1 | 6:30-8 PM | BYOB

About Maggie Perkins: When food writer, former farmer, and market chef Maggie Perkins isn't preparing seasonal dishes on the fly at local farmers markets, you might find her at a backwoods barbecue joint in Mississippi, comparing chargrilled oysters in the Big Easy, or trading food folklore with a fishmonger on the coast. Her true north is in her home kitchen, puttering about, spinning vintage vinyl, perfecting her creole cooking techniques, and developing recipes she shares in print, and on her blog, Notes from Maggie's Farm.
