A cocktail hour kicked off a special dinner for Jennifer Adcock
and seven of her lucky guests, who were wined and dined with shrimp, frog legs, figs and other seasonal Louisiana delights Aug. 1 at E’s Kitchen in Parc Lafayette.

Featured chefs included Indulge pastry chef Tuesday Sunshine, Charley G’s executive chef Holly Goetting, Mortar and Pestle owner/chef Hannah Ellaham, Saint Street Inn chef Ashley Roussel, Dark Roux owner/chef Ryan Trahan, Social Southern Table and Bar chef de cuisine Kyle Waters III and E’s owner/host Paul Ayo. Adcock also received a commemorative poster signed by the chefs and the opportunity to watch some of Acadiana’s top chefs in action. Wine pairings were provided by Schilling Distributing.
