The Northwestern State University Foundation will host Flavor of Louisiana, an event to showcase the talents of chefs from throughout the state with samplings of Louisiana seafood dishes, along with cocktails and entertainment.

Flavor of Louisiana, which will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, April 7 inside NSU’s Wellness, Recreation and Activities Center, is a collaboration between NSU and the Louisiana Seafood Board in which guests can savor eclectic samplings of Louisiana’s rich culinary tradition.

“Louisiana is known for its unique cuisine and flavorful seafood traditions,” said Jill Bankston, CFRE, associate director of Development. “The Louisiana Seafood Board is donating the seafood for the chefs to prepare for Flavor of Louisiana. Participating chefs and restaurants will offer a variety of seafood dishes for our guests and we are planning entertainment with some of our popular student ensembles for the evening. We are looking forward to hosting this spring event to celebrate Louisiana’s culinary arts.”

Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser will be a featured special guest, along with 2017 inductees into the Long Purple Line, NSU’s alumni hall of distinction, who will be honored earlier in the day.
