This series provides an opportunity to support the innovative work happening daily at Ochsner all while enjoying fine dining from the comfort of your own home. The series of summertime events brought the community together virtually while helping to advance Ochsner’s mission.
Fifty guests participated in the August virtual event, for which Ralph’s on the Park curated a three-course dinner for two paired with a Comte De Lafayette Rosé. Mark Romig served as the Emcee.
For the first course, diners enjoyed Shrimp Daniel, a combination of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes and Gulf shrimp topped off with a French dressing and celery root remoulade. The main course featured a beef tenderloin drizzled with a red wine demi-glace with potato gratin and roasted Brussel sprouts on the side. The meal ended on a sweet note with a refreshingly tart lemon icebox pie.
The Gumbo Trio provided curbside entertainment as virtual event attendees arrived to pick up meals.
The August “At Home with Ochsner” event was sponsored by Reily Foods – the fourth generation, family owned company known for its iconic New Orleans brands Blue Plate Mayonnaise, French Market Coffee and Luzianne Tea. Victoria AM Smith MD additionally sponsored the program.
