Northshore Food Fest

This past Sunday was the 24th annual Chef Soiree. Held in Covington’s Bogue Falaya Park, the soiree is a fundraiser for the Youth Service Bureau, and organization that funds CASA and other programs for at-risk youth. An impressive list of restaurants set up booths and offer a dish or two for tasting. There are beer companies, like Abita, and the local wine and spirit distributors also set up shop.


As the crowd grows, lines for food in the tents can grow pretty long. It’s not too bad, waiting in line offers the opportunity to socialize. One of the longest was for Sake Cafe, where I waited for about 15 minutes while the chef refilled the sushi offerings by making some of the longest rolls on record.



Big crowds, beautiful weather, lots to eat and drink (for a good cause, of course).
