Buffs on the Bayou II

or as I called it....... Part Deaux, because we were here last year.

Canyon, Texas

Saturday, July 23, 2011

President Pat O'Brien started the Gala off with introductions of WT's Coaches, Staff, AND ME!


What I did was to break down the event into 5 stations.  This first one featured our South Louisiana rice.  We cooked a Filé Gumbo and Shrimp Creole.

Our Menu:

Shrimp Creole  with Long Grain Rice

Creole (Veal) Grillards and Creamy Grits

Creole Jambalaya  with Shrimp, Chaurice Sausage and Chicken

File’ Seafood Gumbo and Rice

Creole Eggplant Dressing with Shrimp and Ham

Seared Filet Mignon with Crab Pontchartrain Sauce

Trout Almandine

Bread Pudding with New Orleans Rum Sauce

Buffalo Thunder

Our second station was manned by Thomas, he pan seared thin slices of Mushroom Encrusted Filet Mignons in butter, then capped them with a rich reduction of heavy cream, mushrooms and lump crabmeat.  In South Louisiana we call this topping a Ponchatrain Crabmeat Sauce, named after the saltwater lake that forms the northern boundary of the city of New Orleans.


Our third station was headed by Sous Chef Robert, he pan seared Trout Almandine; the rainbow trout was pan fried, with almonds, butter and lemon juice.

We didn't get a pic of the last two stations. The 4th station featured a Creole Jambalaya and Veal Grillards and Grits!!  Our last station featured a Raisin infused Bread Pudding and a Dark, Semi-Sweet Bread Pudding.  Both we drowned in Old New Orleans Rum and Brown Sugar Sauce.
