On Sunday, April 13, 2014, Chef Tim Byres of Smoke, Chicken Scratch, The Foundry, Bar Belmont and Outpost American Tavern and Jim Gossen, President and CEO of Louisiana Foods, host the first annual Salute to King Creole Crawfish Festival at Chicken Scratch and The Foundry. Celebrating all things Louisiana, guests can “laissez les bon temps rouler” with crawfish tastings, drinks provided by Stoli Vodka and Peticolas Brewing Company, and live entertainment from the Zydeco Stingrays on The Foundry’s outdoor stage.

Beginning at 4:30pm, revelers are invited to let the good times roll with Creole tastings created by the joined forces of Jim Gossen and Chef Tim Byres. Tastes will be served throughout the compound at separate stations including a Gumbo Station, Oyster Station, and of course, an authentic Crawfish Boil Station filled with farm-raised Louisiana crawfish gussied up with special herbs and spices. Besides the good eatin’, festival-goers will enjoy cocktails provided by Stoli and beer provided by Dallas’ own Peticolas Brewing Company.   Continue reading
