Our 2nd Annual Jambalaya Jam & Cook-off was a smashing success! More than 100 guests enjoyed jambalaya tastings from participating restaurants, as well as live Cajun and Zydeco music from Le Travaillant. 

After everyone voted for their favorite jambalaya, there was a clear winner: Swanson’s! Second place went to Open Outcry, and Calabria Imports captured third.

The event was held at Cork & Kerry on Feb. 24, 2020. Tarot card reader Kathy Konopasek entertained guests with a taste of New Orleans clairvoyance. Balloon artist Jamie McCann from Scenic Backdrops decorated the space with Mardi Gras ballon “beads”. Cork & Kerry mixed delicious Hurricane cocktails for the crowd, and Swanson’s provided jalapeño cornbread to complement the tastings.

Thanks to all the participating chefs for their delicious dishes and to everyone who came out to Cork & Kerry to enjoy the fun!
