My Menu for the Foodbuzz Gulf Fund Raiser

As many of you may have read on MSNBC or at the Foodbuzz home page I am participating in this month’s Foodbuzz 24X24 dinner party.  This is a special 24X24 as it is geared to raise money for my beleaguered Gulf Coast.

Destin BeachWith remnants of Katrina still strewn everywhere and oil soiling what are easily the most beautiful beaches in the 48 contiguous, we need a little good news.  The folks at Foodbuzz have come up with just the ticket.  But I’ll let MSNBC tell you all about it:

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA — As the Gulf Coast struggles to recover from the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, Foodbuzz, the largest online food community, is calling on food bloggers across the country to cook up a Gulf Coast-inspired meal on July 24th — and blog about it — all in support of the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF), which has been playing a key role in relief efforts in the wake of the tragic oil spill.

    Each month, Foodbuzz’ 24×24 section of the website showcases blog posts from 24 Foodbuzz Featured Publisher bloggers from around the world about meals they’ve prepared within one 24-hour period. This month, Foodbuzz has chosen 24 bloggers from around the country to serve as “Gulf Ambassadors” and host a Gulf Coast-inspired meal on Saturday, July 24th. A donation of $250 in the name of each of the bloggers will be donated to the GNOF, for an initial contribution of $6000. Some of the participating bloggers from around the country include:

  • Passionate Eater – San Francisco
  • Cooking with Christen – Louisiana
  • Fresh Local and Best – New York City
  • SheSimmers – Chicago
  • Le Grand Fromage – Florida
  • Don’t (White) Sugar Coat It – Boston
  • Four Points Foodie – Austin
  • Wannabe TV Chef – Alabama
  • First, Make a Roux! – San Diego
  • For additional food bloggers — up to 100 — who would like to participate in the program by hosting their own Gulf Coast-inspired meal, Foodbuzz will also donate $25 in their name to the GNOF. Posts can be submitted to Foodbuzz on July 25th at


Here is my menu which features recipes from my cookbook Third Coast Cuisine: Recipes from the Gulf of Mexico:  I’m starting with a rich seafood gumbo chock full of Gulf shrimp, blue crabs and Conecuh smoked sausage.  For my main course I’m knocking out some Cuban pressed sandwiches with lots of roast pork and ham and I’m finishing with Key lime tartelettes.  HERE is the post of the dinner party complete with recipes and plenty of food porn.
