On Friday, June 3, Louisiana Travel hosted a special dinner for Atlanta Food & Wine Festival - Geaux South.  The dinner was held at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.  

Geaux South was an evening event featuring classic dishes from a team of Louisiana chefs, two whole hogs over a live fire, a zydeco/blues band, craft beer, wine and specialty cocktails from the Cure New Orleans team.  

The celebration added dash of country comfort and pinch of sophistication to some of the best food in the South, not to mention the traditions, culture and culinary perfection that have earned Louisiana its legacy.
