Learn to cook from musicians Romero, Young, Chef Mould
Louisiana Folk Roots is hosting two days of cooking classes with musical chefs Roddie Romero, Linzay Young and Pat Mould.
On Sept. 22 and 29, join Roddie Romero of The Hub City All-Stars, Linzay Young of the Red Stick Ramblers and acclaimed Louisiana chef Pat Mould for cooking workshops at Vermilionville’s L’école de cuisine from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The sessions will be a combination of cooking and musical performances, as well as food sampling and story swapping.
On the 22nd, Romero will instruct attendees on how to prepare shrimp, crab and poached egg fricassé and Mould will share his creole potato salad recipe. On the 29th, Young will cook his black pot jambalaya, and Mould will prepare his chunky chocolate walnut bread pudding with Kahlua cream sauce.
Each class is $20 per person or $15 for Friends of Louisiana Folk Roots. To nab one of the few seats available, call Louisiana Folk Roots at (337) 234-8360 ext. 230. Vermilionville is located at 300 Fisher Road and park admission is not included in the cost of the class.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
