Celebrating its twentieth year of work, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation hosted the annual Carnivale du Vin weekend in New Orleans on November 4 and 5, 2022. The brainchild of Chef Emeril Lagasse and his wife, Alden, the nonprofit foundation aims to create opportunities to inspire, mentor, and enable youth to reach their full potential through culinary, nutrition, and arts education. Carnivale du Vin included a beneficiary luncheon, a patrons’ celebration, a grand main event at The Fillmore, and a live auction featuring premier winemakers. The foundation recently announced it raised $2.2 million in 2022.
