An homage to the skill, the fare, and the fans of these chefs, this event is an exclusive opportunity to not only taste their creations, but to rub elbows with them in an intimate dinner setting.

The venue, set in a historic cotton mill, is home to 2014 Chef to Watch Cody Carroll’s newest venture Sac-a-Lait. Every detail of Sac-a-Lait is handcrafted, from reclaimed, 140-year-old pine from a neighboring Broom Factory, to the hand-crushed oyster shells that make up the bar.

Join us in this beautiful space as we eat our way through six delicious courses plus hors d’oeuvres from Sac-a-Lait, enjoy wine and liquor provided by Republic National Distributing Company, and experience flavors from Louisiana's hottest new chefs. A portion of the proceeds will benefit a scholarship fund for the Louisiana Culinary Institute in Baton Rouge.

The nearby Windsor Court hotel is offering a special reservation rate for the night of the event. Link here: http://j.mp/1N5vyxd
