In Louisiana, a cochon de lait is a social event surrounding the roasting of a pig over an open hardwood fire and the feast and frivolity that follows. Let’s kick off NOWFE at Central City BBQ with a Pig Roast Party: whole hog from Boucherie and traditional sides from Central City BBQ, Broussard's Executive Chef Jimi Setchim, and more. Tap your toes or try out your “two step” to the music by Bayou Ramblers and sip on wine from the Bubble Tap Trailer and beer from Stella Artois. Traditional Cochon de Lait Culinary historian, Dr. Howard Conyers will join us to describe the history behind it all while Chef Nathanial Zimet breaks down the hog.
