Learn the secrets of Cajun cooking from the best chefs in St. Louis, Mike Johnson and Christina Fitzgerald, whose culinary roots are connected to New Orleans, then taste the subject matter of the most delicious lesson you’ll ever learn as they hand out samples. These cooking demos of authentic Creole cuisine will be taking place all day long as highly talented amateur chefs from across the area face off, preparing their best dishes to be sampled by a panel of hungry and highly discerning judges. Music by the legendary Zydeco Crawdaddies!
Admission to the event includes an authentic Cajun lunch, prepared by the flavor wizards at Sugarfire Smokehouse, and all the beverages you need to wash it down, not to mention boot-stomping tunes straight out of the Big Easy.
Please note that, in accordance with the City of St. Louis Health Department, food prepared by the amateur chefs in the competition is not available for public consumption.
Join us behind the scenes of a real kitchen as chefs from Sugarfire Smokehouse prepare scrumptious cuisine for a lucky few in a private dining experience. And it’s not just amazing chow: you’ll also be treated to a premium, fully stocked open bar of top-shelf cocktails crafted specifically for your own personal palette by Master Mixologist Matthew Longueville from noon to 4:00 pm.
We’ll kick it off at 9:00 am with Bloody Mary’s, mimosas and breakfast...and then it’s on. Throughout the day you’ll get to enjoy authentic Cajun food before anyone else as it as soon as it comes out of the smoker and the jambalaya pot.
All-inclusive Kitchen Passes are $75 each.
