Hogs Hits the Mattresses

Clemenza once said, “"Hey, come over here, kid, learn something. You never know, you might have to cook for 20 guys someday.” On March 31st, an all star collection of New Orleans chefs will be cooking for a lot more than 20 guys. The 4th annual Hogs for the Cause gala dinner and kickoff will be a Godfather inspired “Italian Wedding Feast.”


The Link Restaurant Group (Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski, Ryan Prewitt, Rebecca Wilcomb, Levon Wallace and Billy Jones), along with with guest chefs Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman (Hog & Hominy, Memphis), Kristen Essig (Meauxbar and Cavan, New Orleans), Carey Bringle (Peg Leg Porker, Nashville) and Tandy Wilson (City House, Nashville) will be tasked with serving up the massive meal in City Park.


“Tracksuits and bad tuxedos are required, slick mustaches are optional, but excessive romantic behavior is encouraged,” joked Hogs organizer Rene Louapre. “The gala dinner has become a fun way to showcase both the foods and talents of our region, while supporting a great cause… and who doesn’t love a little Godfather every once in awhile.”


Organizers explained that the Sicilian inspired menu will include antipasti platters, pasta, a meat course with contorni, Italian cookies, and a wedding cake. The Cure Co. team will serve up craft cocktails before the feast.


As per tradition, there will be a silent auction and love music.


Dinner is set for Thursday, March 31, 2016 at The Arbor Room at Popp Fountain in City Park, with cocktails beginning at 6p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30p.m. Tickets to the event are available for $200 each. So, leave the gun, and take the canolis.
