Join SoFAB and Jay Ducote in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air to sample some of Jay's delicious new sauces and rubs. Jay has spent years perfecting his version of Louisiana barbecue sauce, using local ingredients like Louisiana cane syrup and Creole mustard to create a uniquely flavored sauce anchored in the state's culinary history. He'll show us how to use them in a variety of dishes. Sauces will be available for sale.
Free with museum admission.
