Demonstration Dinner – New Orleans Reveillon Dinner
December 19 @ 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
During the mid 1800s, New Orleans’ Creole families celebrated the “Réveillon”, a French term meaning awaking was celebrated twice during the winter holidays. The first came after midnight mass on Christmas Eve to break a daylong fast with an elaborate meal. Then, New Year’s Eve brought another Réveillon, usually shared among several families. This more festive meal would be followed by a night of singing and dancing. Today’s Réveillon is celebrated nightly during the Christmas season in restaurants throughout New Orleans. Continuing to uphold the spirit of the past, menus are combined with old Creole flavor and new contemporary cuisine to present truly magnificent dishes. Join us at this evening’s “Réveillon”, where we will be demonstrating a dinner full of feature dishes that are served at some of the oldest restaurants in New Orleans.
