Emeril + Mario Batali + Donald Link = pork heaven. And for charity! The Three Kings of Pork are teaming up with Abita Beer for the inaugural Boudin & Beer block party fundraiser supporting the Emeril Lagasse Foundation. It's November 11 (so, 11/11/11) on the street in front of The Foundry down in the Warehouse District. There'll be all sorts of beer and all sorts of boudin, and if this afternoon's sneak peek was any indication, that boudin's gonna be good. With tix at $75, Boudin & Beer is geared towards being a more affordable complement to the super-popular (and super-expensive) Carnivale du Vin, which is now in its 7th year.
And what does the Emeril Lagasse Foundation do, you ask? All sorts of cool stuff geared towards kids, including contributing funding to NOCCA, the Edible Schoolyard, Café Reconcile, and more. Read more about the foundation here
