When Jean Galatoire moved to New Orleans from the small town of Pardies, France in the late 1800’s, he brought with him a repertoire of classic French dishes. By using New Orleans’ ingredients to recreate these classics, he developed a menu for the restaurant he opened in 1905 that would integrate the zeal of Nola’s cuisine with familial French dining. While Galatoire’s focus on Creole tradition immediately appealed to the upper echelon of New Orleans' society, their culture has always remained an unpretentious testament to the vigor of Bourbon Street. Over the decades, the Galatoire family has maintained their restaurant as an integral part of New Orleans, never wavering on its history of impeccable service and refined cuisine, nor it’s festive charm.

Chef Alex Young’s menu for our Mardi Gras Special Dinner #205 is an acknowledgment of the impact Galatoire’s has made on New Orleans' dining. Just as Zingerman’s prides itself on using regional ingredients, Galatoire’s is known for incorporating local product into their dishes so that their menu reflects only the best of what New Orleans has to offer. Both the Roadhouse and Galatoire’s use freshly sourced fish from the Gulf, resulting in seafood dishes that present the highest quality flavor. Chef Alex will feature a mildly sweet Red Drum en Papillote Sardou for Mardi Gras that will exemplify this quality in a style that reflects the créme de la créme of Nola’s Creole cuisine. Join us on Tuesday, February 28th, as we celebrate with additional delights, such as Filet Mignon March de Vin and Seafood Okra Gumbo. As for dessert, the King Cake Bread Pudding will be the life of the party, of course!

Come learn about the king of ham with one of the best makers in all of Italy. Giovanni Bianchi shares the rich history and tradition of his family's prosciutto, which has been made in Langhirano, Italy since 1905. If you like cured ham, if you're partial to Prosciutto di Parma and if you like stories, this class is for you!

When visiting the aging rooms of this world-class curing house, Ari was stricken with the beauty of the rows and columns of hanging hams, "I feel like I'm in one of those movies where the hero finally finds the secret treasure cave and stands stunned, speechless, staring at it all glistening with a golden glow."

*While you'll get a chance to taste some products, our classes focus more on learning, so you'll want to come fed.
