The Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary Foundation (BTEF) and the
Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) invite the public to
celebrate the delicious resources of Louisiana, major sponsors to the BTEF
and the release of “Louisiana Estuary Cuisine,” BTNEP’s signature cookbook
at a Taste of the Estuary. Join your local, state and federal public
officials, local Chef Brandon LeBlanc, and supporters of BTEF and BTNEP,
on Friday, October 30, 2009 in the Cotillion Ballroom of the Nicholls
State University student union from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, for a four course
gourmet meal with wine pairing, and entertainment by the Lost Bayou
Ramblers. Ticket price is $50.00 and covers your delicious four course
meal and a copy of the cookbook. RSVP is strictly required, as each guest
must present a ticket for the event upon arrival. RSVP’s must be made by
4:30 pm on October 14, 2009 to Sandra Helmuth at sandra@btnep.org or by
calling 1-800-259-0869.

Enjoy an evening of food, music, and people at a Taste of the
Estuary.  At this event, BTNEP will honor major donors who have
contributed to the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary Foundation. The recipes
for each course will be from “Louisiana Estuary Cuisine: A Culinary Guide
to Cooking with Plants and Animals in Louisiana.” You’ll be able to take
home your copy of the cookbook and try your hand at these unique and
fantastic recipes, all of which feature Louisiana products.

Throughout the evening you can pick up free educational materials
from BTNEP, hear Cajun music by the Lost Bayou Ramblers, and get to meet
the author and Executive Chef Brandon LeBlanc, photographer Lane Lefort,
and graphic design artist Marian Brister Martinez who all contributed to
the new cookbook.  Additionally, members of your legislative delegation
both on the national and state level are invited to join us.

Tickets are available by contacting the BTNEP office at
