SOUTHERN FOODWAYS BICENTENNIAL EXHIBIT
June 22, 2012 – July 08, 2012Recurring daily
Location: Calcasieu Public Libraries
“200 Years of Taste,” an exhibit designed by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans will be displayed at the Central Library, 301 W. Claude Street Friday, June 22 through Friday, June 29.
The exhibit will be displayed at the Sulphur Regional Library, 1160 Cypress Street, Saturday June 30 through Sunday, July 8, 2012.
This year marks the Bicentennial of Louisiana becoming a state. A large part of Louisiana’s identity is the unique and delicious food found throughout the state, so it is only fitting to have an exhibit that celebrates the food and culinary culture. The exhibit will show heritage ingredients and dishes as they are related to the geography, environment and historical timeline of the Louisiana.
Whether the meal originates from the swamps, plantations, rice fields or the savory fare of New Orleans, our food is famous for being fabulous! Here in Southwest Louisiana we have an especially rich heritage of inspiring cuisine. After viewing the exhibit, we invite you to check out the extensive cookbook collection in the library, and take some new recipes home with you!
Supported by a Bicentennial Marketing Matching Grant from the Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau for the promotion of the 200 Years of Taste Traveling Exhibit at the Calcasieu Parish Public Library.
