Po'Boy: It's What's for Lunch

Don't forget that today Acadiana hosts its second po'boy fundraiser, this time benefiting Slow Food International's Terra Madre Program, which will go to farmers directly, and The Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation, recently established by Lt. Governor Mitch Landrieu.

Here's the drill: Head over to Acadiana at Ninth and New York from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and grab a shrimp remoulade or roast beef po'boy (or both) for a $25 donation, all of which goes to the organizations. A word to the wise: Don't wait too long...the po'boys sold out before 2 p.m. last time, and though I'm sure they'll be more than ready this go-round, better to be safe than po'boy-less.

Assembling the po'boys is a group of female chefs, including Ann Cashion (Cashion’s Eat Place and Johnny’s Half Shell), Gillian Clark (Colorado Kitchen), Jamie Leeds (Hank’s Oyster Bar) and Susan Wallace (Black Salt). The first fundraiser, held Sept. 12, raised $27,000 for hurricane relief.
