Taste the Power
If you weren't one of the lucky few to snag a scrumptious shrimp or roast beef po' boy at last month's Po' Boy Power fundraiser, then you have a second chance. Acadiana will host a reprisal of the overwhelmingly popular event, which raised more than $27,000 for hurricane relief, with a second on Tuesday, Nov. 1 to coincide with All Saints Day, a religious holiday widely celebrated in New Orleans. This time, 10 female chefs -- including Ann Cashion of Cashion's Eat Place and Johnny's Half Shell and Gillian Clark of Colorado Kitchen -- will work alongside Louisiana politicians and local personalities to dish out the tasty sandwiches. Proceeds from the event will be distributed to Louisiana farmers, harvesters, fishermen, and seafood purveyors through Slow Food International's Terra Madre Program.
