NoDef Hosts Public King Cake Quest at the Ogden


It’s called Fat Tuesday for a reason. Mardi Gras revelers do their fair share of imbibing, but New Orleanians don’t need an excuse to drink. The true spirit of the season is in the food, and there’s no better way to celebrate than a king cake party. NOLA Defender is taking another King Cake Quest this year to find the best Carnival confection in town, and we’re inviting you to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art to help us pick the winners.

 

 

Thursday, head to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (925 Camp Street) at 6pm and sample some of the best cakes from near and afar. NoDef will give you tickets, to be used in the voting process. The more tickets you drop for a cake, the higher the score for the bakery. The best part is, we won’t even make you buy the next one if you get the baby.

 

 

Vendors run the gamut from Uptown, to New Orleans East, all the way to Lafayette. Bakers include Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery, Haydel’s, Golden Pecans in Lafayette, Breaux Mart, the Peacebaker, Sucre, Breads on Oak, and many, many more.

 

 

The tasting is happening in conjunction with this week’s Ogden After Hours event. On January 24, guests will enjoy Mardi Gras Indian funk from the 101 Drummers, including Lionel Batiste Jr., Ajay Mallory, Boubaccaar Cisokko, and Chris Jones. The special guest for the evening is War Chief Juan Pardo of the Golden Comanches. This Ogden After Hours coincides with the opening reception of two exhibitions: “Well-Suited: The Costumes of Alonzo Wilson for HBO’s Treme,” and “Southern Abstraction from the Permanent Collection at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.”

 

 

Come hungry. Miss Linda (The Yakamein Lady) will serve up her famous soul food. The cocktail artists at the Ogden concoct a new craft beverage every month, and you can enjoy an unlimited amount of free king cake once you’ve wined and dined. Tickets are $10 for general admission, and free for Ogden members. The event lasts from 6-8pm.

 

Participating bakeries are listed as follows: Cake Cafe, Gambino's, Swiss Confectionery, Haydel's, Maple Street Patisserie, Breads on Oak, Tartine, Pure Cake, Adrian's Bakery and Ice Cream Parlor, La Dolce NOLA, Buttermilk Drop Bakery, Bittersweet Confections, Breaux Mart, Sweet Life Bakery, Sucre, Golden Pecans, Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery, and Gracious Bakery.
