"We are excited to create an opportunity for some of our region's most celebrated culinary authors to come together and celebrate their work and the food and culture they represent. The writer's festival will be a great opportunity for visitors to chat with their favorite writers about their recipes, cooking traditions, and taking culinary traditions from the kitchen to the page. We appreciate Domino Sugar's support in making this a free event for the community," said Brent Rosen of the Southern Food & Beverage Museum.

Authors will include Emanuel Laroche, author of Conversations Behind the Kitchen Door, Zella Palmer, author of Recipes and Remembrances of Fair Dillard, 1869- 2019, and various others. New writers are being added to the lineup daily.

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is located at 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans. For more information, please visit SoFAB's website here.
