Letter from the Editor: March 2010

Dear Friends,

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum is about to undergo several exciting exhibit changes.  Our new exhibits will be Spoiled: The post-Katrina Refrigerator photographs by Tom Varisco, classic food photography by Eugenie Uhl, and a new exhibit devoted to Galatoire’s Restaurant, a New Orleans institution.  Join us at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum for a Party celebrating these exhibits on March 28, 2010.
Of note is the research our very own grammy-award winning Joe Sunseri has been working on an upcoming exhibit exploring juke joints and food.  He made a research-oriented trip along Highway 61, staying at campy places like the Shack Up/Cotton Gin Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi.  We all received token wine openers from that establishment (thanks, Joe!).  He also ate at some cool places, like the Loveless.

While Joe works feverishly on this exhibit, we hope you will join us for Eat Well Do Good, a wine event on April 4.  We know you will be ready to relax with some wine and good food after you run the Crescent City Classic on the 3rd.

The event  will feature famed New Orleans restaurants Dooky Chase and Bennachin’s, the West African restaurant in the French Quarter.  The reception will feature wines from our official sponsor, Heritage Link Brands, along with tasty libations from the Museum of the American Cocktail, New Orleans Brew, and more.  The VIP reception features fried chicken from Dooky Chase, paired with South African “Champagne”, Cape Classique, and reserve wine tasting.  I will be there.  How about you?

Cheers, Ya’ll!

Stephanie Jane Carter
