The New Orleans Wine & Food Experience “Welcome Party” at Brennan’s iconic pink Royal Street location introduced VIPs to the start of NOWFE’s signature event, the “Royal Street Stroll.” Proceeds from the four-day event support culinary education.
The event was made possible by NOWFE Board President Ted Selogie and NOWFE Board Vice President Traci Beninate. Approximately 100 patrons dispersed throughout the second floor of Brennan’s restaurant for the celebration.
Chef Slade Rushing of Brennan’s served small bites of his Creole specialties to pair with wines provided by Louis Jadot and Kobrand.
The event concluded with a sabering of champagne that was done by Krug Ambassador and Master Sommelier Garth Hodgdon. After the event, all guests enjoyed the activities of the “Royal Street Stroll,” presented by Rouses.
