Boudin, Bourbon and Beer is a one-day delight for your taste buds created by Emeril Lagasse to raise money for his foundation. Co-chaired by Emeril and Chef Donald Link, Boudin, Bourbon and Beer brings together more than 50 leading chefs, including John Besh, Hugh Acheson, Ed Lee and Frank Stitt, to show off the many delicious ways of cooking Louisiana sausage. There is plenty of bourbon in specialty cocktails and Abita pours its beers.
The festival is in the fall, at Champions Square next to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Tickets usually go on sale in August. You must be 21 or older to attend.
