Friday was the first time I’ve gone to NOWFE. Because the Superdome is closed down for renovations, this year’s grand tasting was held at the Morial Convention Center, Hall J. The second grand tasting will be tomorrow 5/28/11 between 2pm and 5pm. If you have a spare $100 lying around and are a true oenophile, this event is for you!
I just got a new SLR, so I stretched its legs for the first time – I didn’t use a flash, I didn’t want to annoy folks…
Wine glasses are ready
Delgado Culinary School had one of the best offerings – yellowtail tartar
Sokol Blosser from Oregon, one of my faves
Besh Steakhouse had an Asian steak and glass noodles dish – they had one of the longest lines and were one of the first stations closed too
Drago’s had a seafood risotto
Reginelli’s had a grilled portobello bruschetta mmmm!
Pontchartrain Vineyards had a lovely sauvignon blanc that tasted like green apples
By this time the lines were forming, look at the line for the Rib Room!
Rouse’s had a wasabi shrimp cocktail whew!
The nice man from Octavia Books was there – I brought him food tastings during the evening and he was still smiling after I spilled some cornbread and bisque over his books eek!
Antoine’s had a yummy crab pasta
The chefs from the Ritz Carlton were hard at work
Restaurant Galvez served a lovely gazpacho
Fleurty Girl produced the event T-shirts
