After a two-year, COVID-forced hiatus, a little culinary and literary Krewe that could, takes its place in the narrow streets of the French Quarter again! The krewe is named for journalist and writer Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) who penned essays about New Orleans culture. He released the first Creole cookbook about the city’s culinary arts, and was know for his political cartoons and other social send-ups.
This year’s king is Frank Brigtsen, of Brigtsen’s Restaurant. Brigtsen came up through the likes of Louisiana kitchen royalty Paul Prudhomme and Ella Brennan. And Brigtsen has made his mark in academic culinary programs at NOCCA and Nicholls State.
The parade is a procession of revelers who don chefs’ hats and throw spoons.
