Cake Walk

NoDef's King Cake Tasting Returns to Ogden Thursday



Carnival means parades and costumes and king cake lots of king cake. It’s hard to find a keg cake outside of the Gulf Coast, but we have enough options to fill in the quota for the rest of the country. With so many choices, it’s best to let the people choose. So, NoDef’s King Cake Walk will return to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art on Thursday (1.28) from 6p.m. to 8p.m. 


Lineup Reveal: Boudin, Bourbon, & Beer


That sweat rolling down your back makes it hard to forget that summer is raging right now. However, winter fall is coming. Star chef Emeril Lagasse is rolling out the lineup for his autumn  crowdpleaser, Boudin, Bourbon, & Beer. Tickets for the November 13 event go on sale this Saturday (8.01).

Irish House's St. Patrick's Week



With over a dozen parades in town, St. Patrick’s Day is starting to feel a lot like Mardi Gras. Celt central, the Irish House (1432 St. Charles Avenue) is also presenting a full roster of indoor events. The gastropub’s annual Irish Week begins on Monday (3.09).

NOLA Food & Wine Experience Exposed!

NODEF Eats & Drinks, So You Don't Have To.



Earlier, in the week, I found myself at a local dive sipping some cocktails with chef, Tom Wolfe. I had run into Wolfe randomly, and I was delighted, yet nonplussed to find myself in a dimly lit bar trading notes on food with an expert. As the evening wound down, Wolfe remarked that he disliked the term “celebrity chef.” The comment and context summed up the essence of New Orleans’ legendary food world: quality without pretense, food that elevates the City not one chef or venue.
