We are excited to introduce the Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Chef Spotlight series! This year, we asked a few of our participating chefs to pair their Boudin, Bourbon & Beer menu item with one of the many beer options that will be available from Abita. This week, we are featuring Chef Eason Barksdale of Bayona.
BOUDIN, BOURBON & BEER DISH:
Abita Turbodog Brisket & Cheddar Boudin
INSPIRATION FOR YOUR DISH ?:
The flavor profile of Beer and Cheese Soup...using Turbodog and Cheese Curds; and also Kielbasa sausage.
FAVORITE OFF-DUTY DRINK?:
I'm a Gin and Tonic man.
Varies often but Hall and Oates for sure, Stevie Wonder, and as nerdy as this sounds Movie Soundtracks. Not compilations, but movie scores...specifically Danny Elfman
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR AT BOUDIN, BOURBON & BEER THIS YEAR?:
Seeing all of my past work buddies, the entertainment, and of course the after party.
You can taste Chef Eason's dish, along with boudin inspired dishes from over 60 chefs, paired with a variety of Abita beers at Emeril Lagasse Foundation's Boudin, Bourbon & Beer on November 4 in Champions Square. Purchase your tickets at Ticketmaster.com!
