Made-From-Scratch King Cakes For Sale
Chef Oscar wants you to hide the baby

February in the Shenandoah Valley usually translates to the dreaded “wintry mix”…..but not this year!  February brings Carnivale Season straight from the Crescent City.  Julie’s brother, David, an accomplished New Orleans chef will visit with us on Saturday February 18 while providing a FREE CREOLE COOKING DEMONSTRATION.

Learn how to make a Roux that’ll stick to your insides…and a seafood stock that serves as the foundation of many a French Quarter dish.  David will share insights and techniques from his 40+ years in the kitchen while also preparing Gumbo, Etouffee, Jambalaya, and other Creole delights FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC.

Chef Oscar will be baking King Cakes all month in February to help you celebrate Mardi Gras in traditional NOLA fashion.  Each King Cake is $19.99 and comes with a Mardi Gras baby for you to hide inside this tasty, made-from-scratch dessert. Please order ahead….540.508.4274
