SoFAB Bringing Back 'French Market Fare' Series

For those who want to know even more about New Orleans food and drink: The Southern Food and Beverage Museum, housed (for now) inside the Riverwalk Marketplace, is bringing back their French Market Fare lecture/cooking demo series. These weekly events are typically held from March through November, and include a whole buncha events geared towards food nerds, while also featuring, of course, actual fare from the French Market. The events are every Sunday at 2PM at the French Market Stage on Decatur Street.

The first three lectures have been announced: This week, it's SoFAB director Liz Williams talking about New Orleans' St Joseph's Day Altars and next week Elizabeth Pearce with a "Cocktail Tour Through History." The full press release is after the jump.

For Immediate Release:
