Grab your tickets for the Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Boudin, Bourbon & Beer 2019, the annual outdoor food and music festival that will take over Champions Square in New Orleans on Friday, November 8. Each year, BBB brings together the best of food, drink, and entertainment for the ultimate Louisiana-inspired celebration with a cause. The event allows the foundation to support its culinary and nutrition education programs throughout the year.

Chef Aarón Sánchez (owner/chef of New Orleans eatery Johnny Sánchez, author, and MasterChef judge) will cochair Boudin, Bourbon & Beer this year along with founding cochairs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski. “It’s an honor to cochair Boudin, Bourbon & Beer and support an organization that impacts so many young people in New Orleans and beyond,” Sánchez says. “It’s inspiring to see chefs from all backgrounds come together for this event every year and donate their time, food, and energy for such a valued cause.”

The music lineup for this year’s Boudin, Bourbon & Beer at Champions Square is sure to bring the New Orleans flavor to the stage as well. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Grace Potter, Fruition, and Motel Radio have been confirmed to rock throughout the evening as guests mingle and try over seventy dishes from top chefs around the US.

Chef Emeril Lagasse, Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski, and Aarón Sánchez will host the evening, and guests will enjoy food by chefs Nina Compton (Bywater American Bistro, New Orleans), Jimmy Bannos (Heaven on Seven, Chicago), Kerry Seaton-Stewart (Willie Mae’s Scotch House, New Orleans), Carey Bringle (Peg Leg Porker, Nashville), Leighann Smith (Piece of Meat, New Orleans), Beau MacMillan (Elements, Arizona), Tory McPhail (Commander’s Palace, New Orleans), and more.

Since its inception, the foundation has granted more than $10.5 million to children’s charities to support culinary, nutrition, and arts programs.

In addition to top music and culinary talent, Boudin, Bourbon & Beer will feature open bars stocked with a variety of local craft beers from Abita Beer and bourbon cocktails from Buffalo Trace. The bars will also offer premium spirits, fine wines, and more provided by sponsors Au Bon Climat, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, Landmark Vineyards, and FIJI Water. What’s more, guests can enjoy a cigar-tasting tent hosted by sponsor Nat Sherman, as well as a silent auction curated by the featured chefs.

The 2018 event boasted a crowd of almost five thousand guests, many of whom traveled from across the country to partake in the one-of-a-kind boudin bash. Boudin, Bourbon & Beer kicks off the foundation’s two-night signature fund-raising weekend and is followed by the nationally recognized wine auction and black-tie gala Carnivale du Vin, which celebrates its fifteenth year.

The 2018 fund-raising weekend raised $3 million for children’s charities.

The mission of the Emeril Lagasse Foundation is to create opportunities to inspire, mentor, and enable youth to reach their full potential through culinary, nutrition, and arts education with a focus on life skills development. Since its inception, the foundation has granted more than $10.5 million to children’s charities to support culinary, nutrition, and arts programs. Its most recent signature program, Emeril’s Culinary Garden & Teaching Kitchen, is a national education initiative created to enrich the lives of elementary and middle school children through a fun, fresh perspective on food.
