NO PLACE does a festival quite like South Louisiana and they're sending their finest food and song to Austin this Sunday, April 3, 2016. 

I have a stingy list of requirements for a personal hero, and John Besh fills the bill. And then some.

Chef Besh creates culinary magic within the swampy, most mysterious and lyrical regions from which I hail. He is a native son, and his lush and story-rich cookbooks serve as a retelling of his personal history and romance with the region. His devotion to those roots, and the foods which celebrate them, creates a love song that enchants me, and likely all of us who love the fauna and flavor, language and lore of South Louisiana. To open a Besh cookbook is to take a leisurely saunter through Creole culture.

"Growing up, I learned life's important lessons at the dinner table." - Chef John Besh 

Where Chef Besh moves from admirable icon to regional hero status, however, is through the John Besh Foundation which provides scholarships, grants and loans to individuals in the New Orleans community with the passion, creativity and knowledge to enact change in New Orleans and Louisiana. A program supported by the foundation, Chef's Move! provides two fully paid scholarships per year (in Culinary Arts and Pastry Arts) to minority residents of the Greater New Orleans area to attend a nine month program at the International Culinary Center (ICC) in New York City. Milk Money selects local farmers for a series of micro-loans that provide them financial support as well as marketing and business strategy. In short, Chef Besh puts his money where his mouth is, and brings meaning and philanthropy to the dinner table, along with a damn fine bowl of gumbo. Read more about John Besh


But WAIT, there's MORE! And I mean LOTS more. No place combines great food with joyful revelry better than South Louisiana, and the NoLa*Texas Food and Music Festival aims to provide a big taste of the Big Easy with some big names and big plates!

All-you-can-eat CRAWFISH (tickets sold separately) will be provided by THE Crawfish King, Chris “Shaggy” Davis and the musical lineup blends the best of the two worlds with NOLA and ATX local favorites, alike. 

Laissez les bon temps rouler, y'all!
