While traditional foods go hand-in-hand with our four seasons, they are available year round and can give your guests that “taste” of NOLA they expect in your next event.

Spring – Crawfish Season!
It’s not Spring without crawfish! Resembling a small lobster, but coming from the fresh waters of Louisiana, your mouth will melt while eating this delicious seafood – served boiled, sauteed, baked or fried. How to Eat: “Pinch, peel, grab the tail, and devour!”
Summer – Snoball Season!
It’s not summer in NOLA without a sno-ball! Sweet tooth lovers will salivate over the super fine fluffy ice saturated with a selection of a sweet syrup. There’s always more sweetness available to add on top, like a condensed milk drizzle or stuffing the inside with ice cream.
Fall – Football Season!
The only thing more New Orleans than a cast iron pot of gumbo simmering on the stove is tailgating during football season! This delicious staple item is sure to be found at every tailgate party as we watch our beloved Saints.
Winter – Mardi Gras!
Shortly after the holidays end, Mardi Gras kicks off and king cakes are synonymous with the start of Carnival Season! Hidden inside the cake is a small plastic baby. Whoever gets a slice with the baby must bring the next cake or throw a party, thus sparking an unending round of food and fun!
