We are excited to announce that we will be a contributing party to the fantastic Mardi Gras festival held in the Alley of downtown Aiken. Catering by the Deft Chef will be vending at the ADDA/USCA festival held on February 9th. The event will be loaded with music, entertainment, and Mardi Gras fun. We are happy to be helping support both the USCA and the Aiken Downtown Development Association to continue to make the Aiken community the amazing place it is! Mardi Gras in the Alley is fixing to be a must-go event!
Mardis Gras in the Alley?
I am excited to be cooking up some hot and spicy Cajun cuisine. For those of you who don’t know; it is Cajun cooking that inspired me to pursue my dream of becoming a chef. Holding fast to the notion that a cajun cook will always share his recipes, but he will probably leave one ingredient out, I have my own little secrets that make my Cajun concoctions unlike any other on earth.
What’s on the Menu?
Although I am still working on the final details of what I will bring to the table, the menu is almost set in stone. It will include:
- Chicken Jambalaya
- Etoufee Shrimp or Crayfish
- Smoked Turkey and Andouille Sausage Gumbo
- Bread Pudding
If you think you’ve had these dishes before, you’ve not tried mine! It is truly something that shouldn’t be missed! And you also shouldn’t miss meeting up with neighbors and friends! Come celebrate this one of a kind small town that I am proud to call home!
Giving Back to the Community
I love giving back to Aiken the way that the residents have always been so generous to me! Part of the fun of being a chef is watching people enjoying themselves and delight at what I have created. Growing up near Aiken and living here nearly my whole life, I can honestly say there is no better place on earth.
