Tickets are now on sale for Eat Here: A Culinary Celebration of Shreveport-Bossier, an evening of food, film and conversation celebrating some of the most interesting food in Shreveport-Bossier and the fascinating folks who cook it. The event will be held at Sainte Terre in Benton at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23 and will include four courses of food and conversation, as well as the premiere screenings of two short films about local food and a surprise or two along the way. Tickets are $35 each and may be purchased here. This event is presented by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, publishers of 20×49.com.
The four courses of food will include, in this order:
- Shreveport-style stuffed shrimp, a conversation with the Hughes family, and a short documentary film featuring Eddie’s Seafood and Soul Food.
- Authentic Hawaiian cuisine and a few surprises from Ono’s Traditional Hawaiian Cuisine, plus a short documentary film featuring Sione Maumalanga (Ono’s), Chef Tootie Morrison (Abby Singer’s Bistro) and Chef Joshua Wilkinson (2Johns Steak & Seafood).
- “An iconic local food of the future,” as imagined by Chef Holly Moore Schreiber of Sainte Terre. We asked Schreiber, one of the most creative young chefs in Shreveport-Bossier, to “imagine a dish that’ll be famous in Shreveport-Bossier in 100 years.”
- Arguably the most iconic of all local foods for dessert: ice box pies from Strawn’s Eat Shop. More info to come on this course!
There’ll also be a cash bar and assorted munchies from Sainte Terre. Joining our crowd of local food lovers will be a group of visiting travel and food writers representing publications including AAA Southern Traveler, AAA Home & Away, Zagat.com, FoodRepublic.com, Lafayette Food Junkie and more. This event is designed as a companion piece to the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau’s latest local food brochure, Eat Here: A Food Lover’s Guide to Shreveport-Bossier.
