Cajun Crawfish Boil, Ya’ll!


Slow Food Sacramento is paying homage to Sacramento’s annual Jazz Jubilee and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Sunday, May 17th with a down-home style Cajun crawfish boil. The evening will also include foot-tapping live music, provided by Mark St. Mary Louisiana Blues & Zydeco Band.

Hosted at The Supper Club, the menu is a creative (and feisty) approach to a traditional crawfish boil.  Prepared by talented chef Matt Woolston, the evening’s dishes include:

•  Corn, andouille sausage and Arborio rice hush puppies with Creole dipping sauce

•  Gazpacho “shooters” with tomatillo-avocado Mescal salsa

•  Deviled eggs with smoked paprika and capers

•  Crawfish Boil with corn, potatoes and special Cajun spices

•  Southern fried chicken

•  Southern-style Bledsoe pork spareribs, lightly smoked, tender and sticky

•  Southern potato salad with red potato, boiled egg, Applewood-smoked bacon, whole grain mustard and scallions

•  Succotash with sweet corn, lima beans, sweet peppers and green beans

•  Pickled okra, watermelon rind, Jerusalem artichokes and scallions

•  Fresh seasonal fruit
